BATFE rejects agent's 'Fast and Furious' book

Posted: 10.07.13 04:00 PM

Two years ago, federal agent John Dodson turned whistleblower and exposed a botched gun operation in Phoenix that led to senior level resignations, 18 months of congressional investigations and the first vote in history by the House of Representatives to hold a sitting attorney general in contempt of Congress.Now, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, where Dodson works, is preventing him from publishing a book about the failed gun investigation, dubbed "Fast and Furious," because the agency says it will hurt morale inside the ATF."This would have a negative impact on morale in the Phoenix [field division] and would have a detremental [sic] effect on our relationships with [the Drug Enforcement Administration] and FBI," the rejection letter said.The American Civil Liberties Union came to Dodson's defense Monday and filed a protest with the ATF, strongly objecting to the agency's efforts to block Dodson from publishing his already written book, saying the decision violates his "constitutional protections."
