Gil retired in December and it looks like he is joining Dodson and others in talking with CBS and Sen. Grassley about this.
Gil was FORCED to retire early in December because he questioned ATF's failure to notify the Mexican Gov't about their operation, in violation of international treaties and customary protocol. More on that here:
It appears from this article that one of the primary purposes for letting the guns "walk" into Mexico was to boost the number of US-sourced guns seized from the Mexican drug cartels. :barf::barf::barf:
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
