[S]enior leadership’s bragging about all the “successful” IATF operations seems contrived and disingenuous to members of the IATF who feel they are not being used to their full potential. Some interviewees expressed opinions that senior leadership in Guatemala City was using IATF Tecu?n Uma?n to show off, and for political purposes, rather than as a legitimate operational unit.

…One interviewee expressed his opinion that the unit was not getting any results. “For appearances sake, it looks like there is good cooperation from the outside and from the higher levels, but the unit has not actually been achieving any operational results.”
