While federal officials publicly denounced a lone whistleblower and told Congress the Obama administration had done everything it could to stop guns from going to Mexico, administration officials had signs that Fast and Furious investigators were losing track of weapons, a new memo obtained exclusively by Fox News suggests.

The memo, written in early February by Agent Gary Styers with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, appears to corroborate allegations made a few weeks earlier by whistleblower ATF Agent John Dodson about the gunrunning probe. It also conflicts with a letter from Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich to Congress, in which he insisted, “The allegation … that ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons … is false.”

    There is a need for the military.there is a need for state,county and local police. There is no need for federal or private police departments.By private i mean,they work for private establishments like schools.Federal police forces,armed agents,are only political police,not as bad as,but similar to the gestapo.If it comes to obeying law or the corrupt politician or a despot,they are the fist that such evil would impose itself on America.This is a long way of saying,there should be no ATF.
