ATF Special Agent John Dodson, who was sidelined after blowing the whistle on the botched gun-running operation Fast and Furious, has been cleared by his bosses and now is considered a hero, Fox News reports.

John Dodson has been cleared of any wrongdoing, was praised by Congress for bringing the botched operation to the public, Fox News wrote.

“I fully appreciate that you took the courageous step of going to Congress to ensure that the public learned of the flawed tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious,” Deputy Director Tom Brandon said to Dodson.

“Although it took some time, the basic truth is now known to all: Throughout Operation Fast and Furious, agents and prosecutors failed to ensure that firearms were interdicted from straw purchasers and traffickers whenever there was a legal basis and opportunity to do so,” Brandon said.
