What happens when the nation’s chief of weapons enforcement is caught running an illegal weapons operation that funnels guns to Mexico’s murderous drug cartels? He gets reassigned to the Justice Department, hahaha:
The head of the agency that oversaw a botched attempt to track arms flowing to drug cartels in Mexico is being reassigned to Justice Department headquarters, the Obama administration said on Tuesday.
Kenneth Melson, who has been acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, has been under fire and admitted mistakes in the sting operation meant to try to crack down on the flow of weapons to violent drug gangs. He will be reassigned to the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy as an adviser on forensic science, the Justice Department said.
No mention of how many Mexicans have been slaughtered with these thousands of illegal firearms intentionally given to Mexico’s death squads by America’s government, but we’re now told that at least one U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed by a gun given to the drug cartels by the American government.
