ATF Blocks Agent's 'Fast and Furious' Book

A federal agent's attempt to write a book with an insider's account of "Operation Fast and Furious" is being blocked by superiors because it could have "a negative impact on morale," the American Civil Liberties Union said.

John Dodson, an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, was among several agents who claimed whistleblower status in order to provide information to Congress about the agency, CNN's Miguel Marquez reports.

The controversial program allowed 2,000 guns to cross Arizona's border with Mexico beginning in 2009 with the intention of tracking them to criminal gangs.

    Does this surprise anybody?

    The only thing amazing about this is that the administration is using these tactics with no election in sight. They usually save these kinds of shenanigans for election tampering.

    It has nothing to do with morale, and everything to do with the lack of morals and the total disregard for the damage that the current administration is inflicting upon this country. Holder should be arrested. If incompetence were a crime, he would deserve a life sentence.

    Holder doesn't want the book out because people would be going to jail including him.

    Hey H*lder, it's called the 1st Amendment,. But then, you and your boss do not care about the Constitution. America is fed up, and they have their Pitchforks at the ready.
