The ATF leader who oversaw a botched undercover operation in Milwaukee will now be in charge of the agency's embattled Phoenix office, where agents allowed more than 2,000 guns to walk into the hands of suspected criminals through the infamous "Operation Fast and Furious."

A Ping for you.
At least this time we have an idea of where to keep an eye out for ATF Shenanigans.
My advice to all Gun Dealers in Arizona and the surrounding states is to install more cameras and wire up all of their employees so that they have recordings of all transactions from now on. It’s the best way to protect themselves from entrapment charges.
According to a new report from the Department of the Interior Inspector General, the United States Park Police have lost track of thousands of handguns, shotguns, machine guns and rifles.
Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes and will do a better job of covering up his activities. /S
there will be hell to pay for Obamas critics in the second term.After we win this election, it is payback time. For those who supported us, there will be rewards, for the ones who opposed us, they will get what they deserve. There will be hell to pay. “Valerie Jarrett.”
Why does anyone expect any different.
Enough with the “ botched “ BS.
I was a deliberate operation to put weaponry in the hands of criminal drug cartels and blame American gun dealers for it. The problem for the administration is that someone blew the whistle!
“”There are 73 Federal offices of inspectors general, a significant increase since the statutory creation of the initial 12 offices by the Inspector General Act of 1978. The offices employ special agents (criminal investigators, often armed) and auditors. In addition, federal offices of inspectors general employ forensic auditors, or “audigators,” evaluators, inspectors, administrative investigators, and a variety of other specialists. Their activities include the detection and prevention of fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement of the government programs and operations within their parent organizations””
Doing a bang up job at the DETECTION and PREVENTION part, aren’t they? They get busy AFTER the deeds have been done and write up a report. AND if they’re lucky, get to participate in a congressional committee hearing and appear as the hero.
Each unpunished crime expands the envelope of acceptable action and sets a precedent for future presidential thugs to build on.
There is very little time.
In several cases, Obama has refused to appoint an inspector general, such as over at State where one is sorely needed.
You can’t make this stuff up.
F&F was not a “botched sting,” as there was never any attempt to track the weapons.
“”In several cases, Obama has refused to appoint an inspector general, such as over at State where one is sorely needed.””
He finally did appoint one last week after Cruz made his statement. Steve Linick who is the current IG from the Federal Housing Finance Agency. They must be running out of stooges if he had to pick one from another agency. Now will he leave the Federal Housing Finance Agency without an IG? Who cares? As far as I can tell, they are useless anyway.
Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes and will do a better job of covering up his activities.
My father put it this way: "Smart people learn from other people's mistakes; average people learn from their own mistakes, and dumb people just make the same mistakes over and over."
Years later, it occurred to me the critical factor may not always be intelligence, but the willingness to learn.
I agree. There was only the ATF’s assertion. After the fact that they were “tracking” the weapons.
So once again we are seeing a central figure in an Obama scandal being rewarded after the smoke has cleared. If anybody needs proof that “Fast and Furious” was an intentional gun-running scheme they need look no further.
President Jarrett knows what she’s talking about.
Possibly they are being rewarded for their competance. They put firearms in the hands of those who can cause civil disobedience, possibly be part of obama’s civilian army, commit crimes with firearms thereby discrediting firearms and legal firearm owners, converting goods seized by BATF (cigarettes, untaxed alcohol, firearms, etc,) into funds for the gangs also fenceing for them and paying them with taxpayer money. And the brain damaged gentleman, just seeing that he gets proper care from the state.
Job Well Done, America being corrupted, undermined and public resources being converted to the enemies of America. The’ll probably get raises too.
Fast and Furious was not a ‘botched sting.’ In order for a sting to be botched there has to be some protocol in the operation to affect a sting. There was none. F&F went exactly as planned.
