Once again, Sharyl Attkisson at CBS, gets closer to the truth courtesy of her interview with Gil:
In an exclusive interview with CBS News, the lead ATF official in Mexico at the time Darren Gil says somebody in the Justice Department did know about the case. Gil says his supervisor at ATF's Washington D.C. headquarters told him point-blank the operation was approved even higher than ATF Director Kenneth Melson.Attkisson goes on to report that as the head of ATF operations in Mexico, Gill's job was to approve any operation in Mexico but in this case he knew nothing about Operation Fast and Furious.
"Is the director aware of this," Gil asked the supervisor. Gil says his supervisor answered "Yes, the director's aware of it. Not only is the director aware of it, D.O.J.'s aware of it... Department of Justice was aware of it."
Here is part 1 of Attkisson's report. Gil says his immediate supervisor not only told him that Melson was aware of the operation gut that the Department of Justice was aware of it as well. Gill then says in this clip, 'Ok, if you're telling me the heads of these two agencies are aware of it.....' Note that the head of the Department of Justice is Eric Holder.
