Why the Fast and Furious Failed to Stop Gun Smuggling

Fast and Furious was a 15-month ATF program with the intent of catching bigger fish within the Mexican cartels. More than two thousand guns were allowed across the border in order to track them. The plan failed. And now U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder could be held in contempt by a U.S. House Oversight Committee for not making relevent documents available.  Who is to blame? Why would a government agency allow weapons to go freely across the border like that?
