Federal Officials Taking Heat for Gun Running Program
Federal Officials Taking Heat for Gun Running Program

Listen
AIR DATE: November 10, 2011

According to newly released federal documents, before the controversy over a gun running program dubbed "Fast and Furious" broke out, another operation called "Wide Receiver" was in effect which allowed gun traffickers to buy weapons in the U.S. and walk them over the border. Federal agents permitted traffickers to bring weapons into Mexico as part of an investigative strategy. Top officials in the justice department say they didn't know about the program and are now under harsh scrutiny from some members of Congress. Fronteras reporter, Michel Marizco has been covering the story and he joins us.
