CBS News Reports: ATF agent ordered to let guns into Mexico

CBS News reported Thursday March 3, 2011:

Agent: I was ordered to let U.S. guns into Mexico

(CBS News) 

WASHINGTON – Federal agent John Dodson says what he was asked to do was beyond belief.

He was intentionally letting guns go to Mexico?

“Yes ma’am,” Dodson told CBS News. “The agency was.”

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….

….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.”….

Just for the record: You’ve been reading about this scandal in the Tucson Citizen for weeks now, thanks to the efforts of Sipsey Street Irregulars and Dave Codrea  who have done an extraordinary job in digging up the the truth about all this and sharing it with View from Baja Arizona.
