Skip to comments.Bombshell: DOJ Considering Elimination of ATF (ATF? WTF?)
Posted on 09/30/2011 2:59:57 PM PDT by PhilosopherStone1000
Multiple sources, including sources from ATF, DOJ and Congressional offices have said there is a white paper circulating within the Department of Justice, outlining the essential elimination of ATF. According to sources, the paper outlines the firing of at least 450 ATF agents in an effort to conduct damage control as Operation Fast and Furious gets uglier and as election day 2012 gets closer.
Its a serious white paper being circulated, how far theyd get with it I dont know, a confidential source said.
After a town hall meeting about Operation Fast and Furious in Tucson, Ariz. on Monday, ATF Whistleblower Vince Cefalu, who has been key in exposing details about Operation Fast and Furious, confirmed the elimination of ATF has been circulating as a serious idea for sometime now and that a white paper outlining the plan does exist.
Sounds great right? Eliminating ATF? But there is more to this story. Remember, low level ATF field agents, like ATF whistleblower John Dodson, were uncomfortable conducting Operation Fast and Furious from the beginning, but were told by high level officials within ATF that if they had a problem with the operation, they could find a job elsewhere.
Allowing loads of weapons that we knew to be destined for criminals, this was the plan. It was so mandated, ATF Whistleblower John Dodson said in testimony on Capitol Hill on June 15, 2011.
In fact, not only were the ATF agents forced to carry out the operation, they were told to go against what they had been taught in training.

Dry manure is spreading in the wind.
Maybe. But it would be spun as O and H taking decisive action against a corrupt government entity.
Input needed. Have now started a new ping list called BORDER WARS since so many of these stories are starting to intersect and overlap. I would like to keep the Gunwalker threads separate. Let me know if you want on the Border Wars list. It will NOT be the same as Gunwalker, though they might overlap occasionally. Please ping me to any articles you think fit in this catagory. Thank you.
I’ll believe it when I see it. The ATF should have been shut down long ago.
ATF has always been against terrorists.
Obama and Holder and the DOJ (now), not so much.
ATF to be consolidated under executive privilege.
Another government agency will just be given more power then the ATF had had in the first place.
Holder and Dunham think they can blame their own criminal activity on the people they ordered to perpetrate it.
If it was the EPA, NEA, DHS, DOE or HHS I’d probably be impressed.
Yes, but let’s keep our eye on the ball here.
Knowingly selling guns to foreign drug cartels who use those guns to kill Americans (not to mention more than 200 Mexicans) solely for the political purpose of strenghening US gun control laws is an impeachable offense.
Heck, Nixon got forced out for covering up a simple breaking and entering. What’s covering up murder worth?
but the probably is this guy wants his own domestic army.
WTF does alcohol, tobacco and firearms have to do with each other anyway?
Why don't we have a department of carrots, moonbeams, and electrolytes?
An obvious attempt to take the heat off of Holder and Obama, as well as a string of others.
Smoke and mirrors.....Does anybody really believe that ACORN no longer exists?
I’m with you. ATF and homeland security both should go. Stick with the basic FBI and police forces...back to the basics...that should be plenty good!
Be careful, if they shut down the ATF then they will need a new agency to control gun sales. This means new rules and regulations. Until they get the new agency up to speed no gun sales. Think BP and the oil spill. How’s that drilling for oil in the Gulf going? Never let a crisis go to waste is this administration’s theme!

You obviously don’t live in California...
