That list is VERY incomplete. There are 25 BATFE Field Divisions across this country. Phoenix is one of them, and THEY had Fast and Furious. EVERY ONE of those Field Divisions had a similar operation. The ones near the southern border with Mexico ran weapons to other cartels down there. The ones in the middle of the country ran guns to the gangs in Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, and Cleveland.

Down here in Florida, we have their Tampa Field Division. They had operation Castaway, running weapons to Communist terrorists supporting former president Zelaya in Honduras.
