The report said “[Newell] had been reprimanded ... before for crossing the line, but under a new administration and a new attorney general he reverted back to the use of risky gunwalking tactics.”

Just a footnote really but I think it destroys the "Bush did it" distraction defense of F&F.

This seems to indicate that under the Bush administration, gunwalking was acknowledged to be a bad idea, a failed tactic, and it was dealt with.

But even after being characterized as risky, and over the line and after it was discontinued and forbidden under the Bush admistration - BATFE under Eric Holder and the Obama administration decided to do it anyway. That makes F&F a doubly stupid idea at best and IMO - indicates that the real goal of F&F was not to indict Mexican drug cartel leaders.
