ATF Agent Dodson: No One Held Accountable for ‘Fast and Furious’


John Dodson, the federal agent who blew the whistle on the controversial “Fast  and Furious” weapons scheme, says he is still hanging onto his job — by a  thread.
“It was such an atrocious program, it was so misguided, idiotic,  maybe even they can have a hard time justifying or finding a reason to be able  to terminate me over bringing to light the faults with the program,” Dodson told  “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

Dodson is the author of “The  Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and  Furious,” which chronicles how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and  Firearms allowed weapons from the United States to pass into the hands of gun  smugglers so they could be traced to Mexican drug cartels.
That  resulted in an orgy of violence that could be traced back to those  weapons.
“We knew that these straw purchasers were buying these firearms  15, 20, 25 a day from the same dealer, and we knew that these weapons were going  to be trafficked nearly immediately to some of the most violent criminal  organizations that this part of the world’s ever seen, and yet we did nothing to  stop it,” Dodson, an ATF agent, said Wednesday.
“Nobody’s ever explained  where this started from, who thought this was a good idea, and how no one’s been  held accountable for it.”
Dodson said a number of agents involved in  “Fast and Furious” have been punished for blowing the whistle on the ill-fated  project.
“There were several other agents that stood up as well, not as  high-profile as I did, but they put just as much on the line, had as much skin  in the game as I did,” he said.
