You Caused People to Die? You’re Promoted!

16 Aug

Only in government would three supervisors who botched their jobs so badly that people died would get promoted so that they can maybe avoid getting people killed in the future.”

Three ATF supervisors that were involved in the Fast and Furious sting operation that allowed firearms to be trafficked across the Mexican border, that led to the death of border agent Briar Terry, have been promoted.

Amazing.  But, who’s surprised?  Government promotes and encourages failure.


Great News! Whistleblower ATF Agent Says He Was “Ordered to Let U.S. Guns Into Mexico”

11 Mar


CBS reports:  “An Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms senior agent assigned to the Phoenix office in 2010, Dodson’s job is to stop gun trafficking across the border. Instead, he says he was ordered to sit by and watch it happen….

….investigators call the tactic letting guns “walk.” In this case, walking into the hands of criminals who would use them in Mexico and the United States….”

To make matters worse, “on Dec. 14, 2010, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down. Dodson got the bad news from a colleague.  According to Dodson, “They said, ‘Did you hear about the border patrol agent?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ And they said ‘Well it was one of the Fast and Furious guns.’ There’s not really much you can say after that.”

Two assault rifles ATF had let go nearly a year before were found at Terry’s murder.

Dodson said, “I felt guilty. I mean it’s crushing. I don’t know how to explain it.”
