New questions, possible cover-up, surface in ATF Fast and Furious probe
"Two top Republican lawmakers say Arizona prosecutors ?stifled? attempts by agents for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to interdict weapons purchased by ?straw buyers? in that state that later were ?walked? to drug smugglers in Mexico, and may have covered up the fact that two of those weapons were found at the scene of the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent."
