The GOP House leadership has sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding he comply with a subpoena ordering him to provide more documents about the failed Obama administration gun-tracking program known as Fast and Furious.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives program was created to send thousands of guns across the Mexico border to suspected arms dealers with the expectation that they would lead to organizers of Mexican drug cartels, allowing the U.S. to track arms smuggling.
However, the weapons reportedly turned up in street crimes across Mexico. Hundreds reportedly remain missing, but at least two were found at the scene of a 2010 gun fight between smugglers and the U.S. Border Patrol in which Agent Brian Terry was fatally shot.
