ATF Whistleblower Expresses Disappointment With Probe
The federal whistleblower in the scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious says in an interview with Fox News he’s “disheartened and disappointed” by the follow-up investigations.
ATF Special Agent John Dodson said he’s frustrated with the government’s response to his February 2011 complaints, which revealed that ATF was encouraging gun dealers in Arizona to sell to straw purchasers, all with the hopes of tracing the guns to the Mexican cartels. Some of those guns surfaced in crime scenes on both sides of the border.
Records show the ATF sent about 2,500 guns to a cartel as part of an investigation, and some of those weapons are believed to be responsible for the deaths of Mexicans and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, according to Fox News.
