U.S. Attorney Gral Eric Holder suspended weapons covert operation.

Attorney General Eric Holder ordered to stop weapons covert operation.

The U.S. Department of Justice ordered the immediate suspension of all covert operations in which the action of smuggling arms to Mexico was part of a criminal investigation.

The decision, known through an internal memo from the Justice Department that CBS had access to, has been sent to all state prosecutors along the southern border, as result of several allegations made by members of the ATF.

Through these reports, as the one of ATF agent John Dodson, the members of ATF have uncovered the operation “fast and furious”, a mission that allegedly allowed hundreds of illegal weapons into Mexico for over 15 months and is now at the center of an intense dispute bilaterally.
