A new Fast & Furious?: White Gun operation

This operation apparently involved real military grade weapons. Not the types of weapons that you can buy from your local gun store. From the LA Times:

Now members of Congress who have spent months scrutinizing the Fast and Furious debacle are seeking to determine whether White Gun was another weapons investigation gone wrong.

"Apparently guns got away again," said one source close to the investigation, led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) and Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). "How many got into Mexico, who knows?"

Officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives declined to comment on whether any firearms were lost in White Gun. But unlike Fast and Furious, they vigorously defended the previously unreported White Gun operation as a well-managed investigation that produced three arrests and convictions.

The three men "were looking to acquire military-grade weapons for a drug cartel," said an ATF official, who asked for anonymity because the case involves an undercover operation. "This was a classic example of bad guys showing up at a location to get the weapons they desire but getting arrested by law enforcement instead." . . .

"...three arrests and convictions..."

Not a lot compared to the number of transactions anywhere else that resulted in nothing, and the big fish apparently got away.

What a fine success!

It's not the first time the ATF has lied! Anyone remember the OKC bombing? Their office was empty!
