    Just one more thing to add to the long list of reasons why the ATF should be shut down.

    Unintended Consequences

    BATFE commits acts that are apparently motivated by a desire to manipulate politics, instead of a desire to enforce (entrap) import export laws.

    This coverup will follow a familiar pattern. Most of the crminal acts are committed in the coverup, and no prosecution of the leaders of this criminal organization will be attempted.

    Bellevue v. Beltway: Gottlieb tells Holder ‘Investigate ATF or resign’


    Washington State’s leading gun rights advocate wants heads to roll over the “Project Gunrunner” scandal, which was launched in 2009 ostensibly to curb the flow of American guns – some traced back to the Evergreen State – that are allegedly fueling the violent Mexican drug cartel war.

    Well we need to cut some extra fat and getting rid of the ATF would be a start.

    Part II of the CBS story is up (ran tonight). They have ATF video of a straw purchase AND an interview with an ATF agent who has come forward.

    I'd support doing away with the DEA and ATF. Move the manpower to the US Marshals or FBI.

    If the Federal government only did what the Constitution authorized, then it would only need the U.S Marshal service.

    that would never be enough for them. for a totalitarian police state to work, the thugs need to step on every portion of your body with the Jack boot. The BATFE has demonstrated it's totalitarian & draconian business as usual anti Gun & anti freedom policies over & over again.. The BATFE will never go away but they will get bigger & more powerful as time goes on..REMEMBER eventually they will take you guns away , by incrementally legislating them away over time & no one will do anything about it until it's too late. Men like our founding fathers basically do not exist anymore.

    FBI involved in hundreds of legal violations over past decade: report
    Zach Zagger at 10:57 AM ET

    The FBI reported to a presidential oversight board that between 2001 and 2008 it committed approximately 800 violations of laws, executive orders, or other regulations governing intelligence investigations, according to a report released Monday by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). The report summarizes nearly 2,500 pages of government documents obtained by EFF through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) [text] litigation.

    Grassley: ‘Congress needs to get to the bottom of this’


    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “Project Gunrunner” scandal exploded with yesterday’s follow-up report on the CBS Evening News by Sharyl Atkisson, coincidentally – or perhaps not – on the same day ATF announced a major gun and drug bust in Portland, OR and Southwest Washington.

    ATF'S rsponse? Positive Press!

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-31727_16...-10391695.html

    Public Information Officers:

    Please make every effort for the next two weeks to maximize coverage of ATF operations/enforcement actions/arrests at the local and regional level. Given the negative coverage by CBS Evening News last week and upcoming events this week, the bureau should look for every opportunity to push coverage of good stories. Fortunately, the CBS story has not sparked any follow up coverage by mainstream media and seems to have fizzled.

    It was shoddy reporting , as CBS failed to air on-the-record interviews by former ATF officials and HQ statements for attribution that expressed opposing views and explained the law and difficulties of firearm trafficking investigations. The CBS producer for the story made only a feigned effort at the 11th hour to reach ATF HQ for comment.

    This week (To 3/1/2011), Attorney General Holder testifies on the Hill and likely will get questions about the allegations in the story. Also (The 3/3/2011), Mexico President Calderon will visit the White House and likely will testify on the Hill. He will probably draw attention to the lack of political support for demand letter 3 and Project Gunrunner.

    ATF needs to proactively push positive stories this week, in an effort to preempt some negative reporting, or at minimum, lessen the coverage of such stories in the news cycle by replacing them with good stories about ATF. The more time we spend highlighting the great work of the agents through press releases and various media outreaches in the coming days and weeks, the better off we will be.

    Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. If you have any significant operations that should get national media coverage, please reach out to the Public Affairs Division for support, coordination and clearance.

    Thank you,

    Scot

    George's list is based upon WHAT?

    And it's not based opon most of what's not really is.

    I watched the follow-up last night quite by chance as the Commie Broadcast Network is my least favority of the lunatic left media. Instead of nailing the BATF for their irresponsible and unlawful actions, they ***** footed around the issue in such a way it looks like the dealers who were coerced into following the new SA's orders were to blame. Trying to push it back to 2008 with absolutely no evidence presented so Bush can take the blame, not obooba and his bootlicker holder. Typical cbs garbage.


    I said "pussyfooted" and have no idea why this term dealing with kitties paws was ***** out.

    Now the washington post is running interference

    Is Washington Post helping ATF circle wagons on ‘Gunrunner’ scandal?


    Is the Washington Post providing cover to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in the probe of an unfolding controversy regarding “Project Gunrunner” and an off-shoot of that operation in Arizona dubbed “Fast and Furious?”
