Interesting read but not surprising to Senior agents. They have known this all along but management would not listen. Ask the agents who were sent down last year to Houston and had nothing to do for 4 months. Houston management/intell group did not prepare any leads for arriving agents and it was well-known that quite a few agents just played golf or worked out. Working with ICE agents on the border became quickly apparent that they had their act together as an agency and were doing a great job with their investigations. Their intell groups put ATF to shame.
Everyone knows that the intell groups in ATF are the dumping grounds for incompetent agents who are unable to do investigations or are too dangerous to work on the streets. Remember in 2003 when ATF HQ was begging for agents to come to HQ to work in the HQ intell groups. The announcement requested that agents applying be able to read and understand English and be able to write in proper English with few grammatical errors. They had functionally illiterate agents/managers assigned to ATF HQ intell. I recall attending a terrorism conference in 2004 and someone from ATF Intell spoke at the conference. I was sitting with friends from DEA and FBI. God was I embarrassed when this person spoke. No wonder ATF is a second rate agency.
