Feds blocking 'Fast and Furious' tell-all

ATF agent John Dodson blew the cover off Fast and Furious in 2011, and the ATF is actively preventing him from publishing a tell-all book on the operation now.

Documents show that the ATF is doing this based on their claim that the release of such a book would "hurt morale inside the the embattled law enforcement agency."

During Operation Fast and Furious between 2,200 and 2,500 guns were purchased by straw purchasers--people who purchase guns with the intent to give or sell them to others. These illegal purchases were overseen by the ATF itself. The vast majority of these of firearm were then "walked" across the Mexican border and dispersed among members of the Mexican cartel.
