DHS Involvement in OCDETF Operation Fast and Furious (Revised)

Executive Summary

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had minimal involvement in the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force Operation Fast and Furious. Our review of DHS involvement in the operation determined that senior DHS officials in Washington, DC had no awareness of the methodology used by the task force to investigate Operation Fast and Furious until media reports were published in March 2011.
