Is the ATF certainly doing everything it can to make sure that the Americans don’t revisit its inexplicable decision to give thousands of guns to Mexican gangs?
Two years ago ATF whistleblower John Dodson revealed the incompetence of the operation, which led to the resignation of a number of top-ranking ATF officials and also led to Eric Holder becoming the first attorney general in US history to be held in contempt of congress for stonewalling congressional investigators.
To this day the ATF has refused to provide the House oversight committee thousands of documents that would shed light on Fat and furious and possibly prevent another such debacle form occurring.
The ATF has denied Dodson the right to publish his book, using the excuse that the agency is allowed approval over “outside employment”.
In a note sent to
Dodson by the ATF, denying his request to publish his book, “this would have a negative impact on morale in the Phoenix (field division) and would have a detrimental effect on our relationships with the DEA and the FBI’.
They cannot tell the family of Brian Terry anything but they can stop Dodson concerned with maintaining morale among employees in a field office chiefly known for concocting the most incompetent sting operation in memory. After the Justice Dept. leaked a document to the press in 2011 that brazenly tired to smear Dodson.
What has this country come too??
