WH Set To Throw ATF's Melson Under Bus..But Anti-Gun Zealot To Take His Place?
[Michelle Malkin] Getting rid of Melson is a start — but this one move alone ain’t gonna cure ATF’s problems. It’s going to take a bigger bus. Corruptocrat AG Eric Holder knew about the program[Operation Fast & Furious ie Gunwalker..ed] much earlier than he testified to, Rep. Issa says, and he has been an obstruction to the Gunrunner probe since day one.JaWannaB, First Bigot Deluxe and ST gave info on two blogs regarding this:
And then there’s the man waiting in the wings to replace Melson — either as acting director or as permanent director. He’s Chicago anti-gun radical Andrew Traver and he’s scheduled to meet with Holder and DOJ today.[More]
The " War on Guns" and " Sipsey Street Irregulars" blog have been talking up the GunWalker thing for maybe a year+. They both deserve awards for exposing this since they were the first. I think SSI has a mole in the ATF.David Codrea, at the Examiner, has A Journalist's Guide to 'Project Gunwalker' The link is Part 3 with links to Part 2 & 1.
David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh are names you need to remember. They're the Woodward and Bernstein of Gunwalker
Wow, they worked their butts off getting this story out.
