Meet the new director, same as the old director
ATF's new Acting Director distributes video "changecasts," to discuss how he intends to change things. A recent one warns agents of "consequences" if they take their complaints outside the chain of command. Then an ATF spokesman claims that he "simply wanted to address concerns raised to him by employees around the country about why agents who previously went outside the chain of command hadn’t been punished."
They weren't punished because...um...there never was any such person...or...they disappeared...yeah. that's it. Alien abduction...
Anybody read federal whistleblower law?
Thank God for some folks with personal integrity and guts enough to recognize that their bosses were conspiring to cover up a combination of crimes that included providing the weapons that killed a US Border Patrol officer and who knows how many Mexican civilians...and actually say something about it to Congress.
