Did Operation Castaway allow Guns to 'Walk' into Honduras?

Sipsey Street's track record has been so good, I don't hesitate to post this. We know that Operation Fast and Furious was run out of the Phoenix ATF office and was primarily about letting guns 'walk' into Mexico. Now, it's being reported that an ATF SAC (Special Agent in Charge) in Tampa may have been involved in a similar operation that allowed guns to 'walk' into Honduras. The name of the program was apparently Operation Castaway. The SAC who oversaw it - Virginia O'Brien - had previously been a SAC at the Phoenix office.

Via Sipsey Street:
SAC O’Brien was previously the Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division, was later promoted to the Deputy Assistant Director of ATF, but then stepped down to the position in Tampa. Whether the allegations of our source refer to the on-going Operation Castaway remains at this hour unclear, but our source is certain that O'Brien has allowed the "walking" of straw-purchased firearms to Honduras using the same failed strategy as the Phoenix Field Division's Operation Fast and Furious. That Operation Castaway involved arms smuggling to Honduras is also certain.

"This is confirmed as accurate," the correspondence continued. "There are emails in existence where O’Brien has advised those involved that Tampa does not have to report their walked guns because Tampa FD is not a part of Southwest Border or Project Gunrunner."

"From a first person source she is shitting herself trying to cover it up," the report stated.
It will be very interesting to learn the timeline of this one. In the summer of 2009, Honduras president - and Hugo Chavez stooge - Manuel Zelaya was constitutionally removed from office. Shockingly, the Obama administration tried to go to the mat over re-installing Zelaya; Obama referred to Zelaya's removal as an illegal 'coup.' The interim president, Roberto Micheletti, didn't hand over the reigns until November and the situation there was touch and go for several months.

Was this operation going on at the same time Honduras was dealing with this Constitutional crisis?

If so, it would have been quite King Georgian of this administration to arm the bad guys in Honduras.
