The Fatal Mistakes Of Operation Fast And Furious

During the late hours of December 14th, 2010, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in the line of duty by a rip crew in Arizona. The ensuing investigation into the murder of Agent Terry led to the discovery of a gun-walking scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious. The revelation exposed the dangerous decisions made by the federal government, and that it wasn’t just cartels with blood on their hands.

Retired ATF Deputy Assistant Director Peter Forcelli reveals how he became a whistleblower in Operation Fast and Furious, and the lengths he was forced to go through to clear his name for telling the truth.

After retiring from his career in law enforcement, Peter Forcelli became an author, public speaker, and advocate for government accountability. He details the dangers and backfires of Operation Fast and Furious in his book, The Deadly Path.
