Because the Obama Administration simply cannot allow the people to find out the “what did he know, when did he know it” of the Gunwalker scandal – from Pajamas Media:
Yesterday I reported Chairman Darrell Issa, (R-Calif.) of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to the ATF warning them the were not to retaliate in any way against anyone who chose to testify.
They heeded the warning so well the David Cordrea over at Gun Rights Examiner is reporting they just fired Special Agent Vince Cefalu. Cefalu is one of the ATF agents who helped launch the Web site CleanUpATF.org.
One would hope Chairman Issa would hit the roof when he hears about this and start further investigations. ATF is a cesspool and it’s time to clean it out…
We don’t know if Gunwalker goes all the way up to the Oval Office, but it is getting abundantly clear that it at least laps around the feat of the Attorney General. This criminal action by our government – allowing guns to be bought by the Mexican drug cartels – must not be allowed to stand. We have to find out who did what and when…so here comes the AFT essentially stating, “if you talk, you’ll lose your job”. Lots of good and honest people work at ATF…but now a man has to think it over. Maybe he has a wife and kids and there aren’t a lot of jobs out there…do you tell the truth and risk your job, or just keep quiet?
One thing is certain in my mind – a criminal investigation will eventually have to be launched in to Holder’s “Justice” Department once we get a new President.
