It isn't the failed plan it's the cover up. It never had good intentions to begin with. The focus of the plan was to catch US guns dealers NOT drug dealers. There was no fail safe plan to track these guns.

UPDATE II: The House has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in civil contempt, in addition to criminal contempt. Twenty-one Democrats voted with Republicans for civil contempt. Civil contempt will allow the Oversight Committee to proceed with their quest for documents in front of a judge, rather than simply relying on the U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C. to assess the charge.

Legal scholars say there is no practical way for Congress to get the documents except to go to court.

That will put a spotlight not only on Holder but also...
