FAST & FURIOUS: ACLU blasts ATF treatment of Gun-Walker Whistleblower


A leading government watchdog on Monday jumped into the Operation Fast and Furious controversy by taking up the cause of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) special agent who penned an expose` of the ATF’s “gun-walking” strategy.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, the group’s officials sent a biting letter defending Special Agent John Dodson, whom they claim is a whistleblower whose book will blow the lid off the alleged ATF and White House coverup of a flawed, perhaps illegal, government program.

There are millions of Americans who believe that ATF gun-smuggling operation resulted in at least two American law enforcement officials being killed — Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent Jaime Zapata — as well as hundreds of Mexican citizens.

Dodson’s book is expected to give an insider’s view of the actual Operation Fast and Furious fiasco as well as the intense coverup in the aftermath of the ATF’s snafu.
