United States Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich is retracting claims that there were eleven instances in which weapons linked to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ controversial Fast and Furious case were associated with violent crimes within the United States.

Not including the two firearms discovered at the December 2010 murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry , Weich is now saying the ATF is aware of only one instance in which a weapon linked to the Fast and Furious case can be linked to a violent US crime.

“…We would like to correct and update the information provided,” Weich wrote in a letter addressed to Sen. Patrick Leahy , Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, dated August 31, 2011.

The incorrect information was initially provided by the Department of Justice in July 2011.
