The ATF ought to be a convenience store, not a government agency

by wfgodbold

At least then naming their big plan “Operation Fast and Furious” would have been understandable; they could have hired Vin Diesel and Paul Walker to advertise for them.

Did they think it would never be investigated?

Did they think intentionally facilitating straw purchases and increasing the number of guns available to the Mexican cartels wouldn’t have any negative consequences?

Or did they just see it as a way to drum up support for more funding, since “70% of guns from Mexico (submitted for tracing) are traced to the US.”

If they really were briefed weekly on the operation’s progress, they’ve got no excuse.

And hey, if the agents complained, they were always free to go find another job.

Defund the ATF. It’s just as good an idea now as it was three months ago.

Update: More on the hearings from Frank Miniter at NRO and Jordy Yager at The Hill.
