The true and shocking story of an undercover smuggling operation. Conducted under the umbrella of Project Gunrunner and intended to stem the flow of firearms to Mexico, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) ran a series of a€œgun walkinga€ sting operations, including Operation Wide Receiver and Operation Fast a Furious. The government allowed licensed gun dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers so that they could continue to track the firearms as they were transferred to higher-level traffickers and key figures in Mexican cartels. Motivated by a sense of patriotic duty, Tucson gun dealer and author Mike Detty alerted the local ATF office when he was first approached by suspected cartel associates. Detty made the commitment and assumed the risks involved to help the feds make their case, often selling guns to these thugs from his home in the dead of night. Originally informed that the investigation would last just weeks, Dettya€™s undercover involvement in Operation Wide Receivera€”the precursor to Operation Fast a Furious, by far the largest a€œgun walkinga€ probea€”stretched on for an astonishing and dangerous three years. Though the case took several twists and turns, perhaps the cruelest turn was his betrayal by the very agency he risked everything to help.a€œBreak offa€”thata#39;s not our vehiclea€”and return to position, a€ I heard her shouting into her radio. ... second in the street while looking at the silver Dodge Intrepid with blacked-out windows parked on the side of the road near her property line.
