The difference is that the program (wide reciever) that started under Bush used GPS and added funding for the Etrace program. They only lost 250 guns
and ended the program saying, "never again." They also sought coopertion fom Mexican government officials on the federal and local level.
Fast and The Furious included such bright ideas as refusing to let agents even monitor the wharehouses were the weapons were being stored, the people
transporting them, or informing the Mexican government of the new program. They allowed over 2,500 guns go across the border and never planned to stop
the program. They also punished whistleblowers that spoke out against the program.
Wide Reciever was a complete failure and those that ordered the program should face official sanction. Fast and Furious was a complete failure, but
the brass would not stop it. Not only that they actively sought to squash anyone that tried to report what was happening. There was also no chance of
arrest since the Mexican government had no idea it was happening. Nobody but the DOJ and ATF knew what was happening. The only result could be the
death of innocent civilians. Yet the DOJ and ATF have stonewalled any and every investigative procedure that congress has used to find out what
happened, why, and who ordered it.
