The Obama administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) in particular, are under fire from across the political spectrum again after they were publicly exposed trying to censor a key whistleblower in the¬†Fast and Furious¬†federal gun-running scandal by preventing him from publishing a book about it. Claiming that publication of ATF Special Agent John Dodson‚??s manuscript would harm agency morale,¬†official documents¬†show that the¬†out-of-control¬†bureaucracy sought to violate the First Amendment in an apparent effort to avoid further scrutiny of its lawless activities. However, that attempt failed miserably, and the scandal is back in the headlines with a vengeance.
