Agent: I was ordered to let U.S. guns into Mexico
WASHINGTON - Federal agent John Dodson says what he was asked to do was beyond belief.

He was intentionally letting guns go to Mexico?

"Yes ma'am," Dodson told CBS News. "The agency was."

An Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms senior agent assigned to the Phoenix office in 2010, Dodson's job is to stop gun trafficking across the border. Instead, he says he was ordered to sit by and watch it happen.

Investigators call the tactic letting guns "walk." In this case, walking into the hands of criminals who would use them in Mexico and the United States.

2. Where's the grand jury?
Where's the Justice Department? Where the fuck is the rule of law we were promised?

4. Something tells me that we are going to have to see
congressional inquiries, Senate inquiries, and the appointment of a special prosecutor to see any real justice. Of course that may not even do it. Remember the Waco inquiries? What a total sham. I remember the comments made by congressmen when they thought their mics were turned off. Total sham.

6. There will NOT be a grand jury. It looks like the U.S. Attorney‟s office KNEW ABOUT IT
and endorsed it!

Excerpt from Grassly's latest letter dated March 3

"These documents establish that ATF allowed illegal firearm purchases by suspected traffickers in hopes of making a larger case against the cartels. ATF was not alone. The U.S. Attorney's office appears to have been fully aware and engaged in endorsing the same strategy."
