ATF Orders Immediate Review of Gun-Running Operation

From the Center for Public Integrity March 4, 2011:

ATF Orders Immediate Review of Gun-Running Operation

Updated: 3/4/2011, 10:54 am | The head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive on Thursday night ordered an outside evaluation of his agency’s efforts to combat Mexican gun trafficking following a Center for Public Integrity report that ATF supervisors allowed more than 1,700 guns to flow to straw buyers with the expectation the weapons might cross the border and even be used in crimes.

The Center’s story quoted an ATF agent, John Dodson, who blew the whistle on the operation after his supervisors repeatedly cast aside frontline agents’ concerns that the weapons ATF let “walk” might be deployed in crimes on both sides of the border.


About time….since ATF “walked” guns keep turning up at the sites of murdered US law enforcement agents.
