Congressmen Demanding Answers About "Operation Castaway"

Exactly how many 'operations' did the government run for which the goal was to get guns into the hands of our enemies?

"We at the Blaze told you on Monday about reports that a joint ATF-ICE gunrunning program similar to “Operation Fast and Furious” existed in Tampa, Florida called “Operation Castaway.” The methods were apparently the same- ATF agents allowed straw buyers to purchase weapons knowing that they would end up in the hands of criminals across international borders. Only in “Castaway,” the weapons supposedly found their way to the notoriously violent MS-13 gang instead of Mexican cartels.

Now three Congressmen- led by Rep. Bilirakis of Tampa, Florida- have sent a letter to the John Morton, Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), demanding answers on “Castaway.”
