Four senior ATF managers behind the botched Fast and Furious gun-smuggling investigation face termination after a disciplinary board recommended they be fired, the Washington Times reports.

The ATF Professional Review Board recommended the termination of the four managers, William Newell, former special agent in charge of the ATF’s Phoenix office; George Gillett, the former second in command in the Phoenix office; Mark Chait former assistant director for field operations; and William McMahon, a former deputy assistant director of ATF who oversaw field operations in the West –

Federal officials said they were among a number of managers who mishandled the operation by letting hundreds of weapons reach the hands of Mexican smugglers.

The three may appeal their dismissals or faec a disciplinary review board of senior managers, the Washington Times reported.
