Snippit:The ATF head has been reassigned amid an investigation into a controversial U.S. gun-trafficking operation, part of a a broader shakeup at the Justice Department in which the U.S. attorney in Phoenix is stepping down, people familiar with the moves said Tuesday. Kenneth E. Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, will become a senior advisor on forensic science in the department’s Office of Legal Policy. He will be replaced at ATF by B. Todd Jones, the U.S. attorney in Minnesota, the department said in a statement.The changes follows months of controversy over the agency’s “Operation Fast and Furious.’’ That now-defunct operation targeted Mexican gun traffickers but has been linked to the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol officer. Congressional Republicans have criticized ATF over the operation and are pushing to learn whether senior Justice Department officials were involved.Continued: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/atf-head-kenneth-melson-reassigned-amid-gun-trafficking-probe/2011/08/30/gIQAjALppJ_story.htmlNote that the principals from the field offices have all been "promoted" to office gigs in Washington DC. This is the old "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" routine. These are the guys who can bring down Holder and Obama and should the House and Senate desire, they now have the option to impeach. By selling guns to the Mexican Drug Cartels,Obama thought he would have enough carnage with guns traced back to the United States where he could ram more restrictive "Gun Control" down our throats and re-impose the "Assault Weapons Ban" just like he told Sarah Brady about working "under the radar" on new gun control. One problem - a very big problem - he was exposed and now people know. However, with a compliant Propaganda Ministry (NBC, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, Media Matters, etc.) the Progs are spinning tales rather than reporting the facts so we have our work cut out to shine the bright lights on these cockroaches.
