I heard they are going to address these issues once half of the executive staff returns from Dublin, Ireland. Must be doing a site survey for the next gunrunner group.
Are there any mummies in Ireland?

Everyones frustration is understandable, enough is enough. However, (and I truly understand the context of the phrase, "what a joke"), but unfortunately the Southwest Border is NOT a joke. Yes ATF's response is. Yes our senior leadership continues to fail us with veiled smoke and mirror responses to EVERY issue that arises. Yes they openly encouraged and counseled Mr. Melson to deny the retaliatory and abusive practices. Yes they sold the farm on our explosive jurisdictions, either by apathy or ignorance. Yes they have lied to and misled Congress and the American people, and yes they have relied upon an unethical Chief counsels office to guide this Bureau. BUT, the violence in Mexico and along the southwest border is NO joke. People are dying, many of whom are friends and family members of American citizens who DO pay our salaries. It may just be headlines for Webb, Torres, and Newell and others, but standing up to bullies is what we do better than anybody at ATF. We have offered and been ignored. We have asked and been denied to meet with the ATF leadership regarding all of these issues. Maybe now when our appropriations are threatened, Mr. Melson or Mr. Holder will get serious and clean house. What could have been done with a scaple two years ago now must be accomplished with a push broom. Remember, the best way to defeat the self-serving people who see fit to destroy this Bureau is TO MAKE CASES. Do it in spite of the obstructionist SACs and ASACs. Remember, we have spent our ENTIRE careers running to the gunfire. They spent 6 -10 yrs and ran to HQ as fast as they could go.
