Inept to the point of being a menace
Re: your article in the June 20 edition titled “Objecting ATF agents ‘told to fall in line’ in gunrunning case” (page 11), what it wrong when the ATF sells guns to the Mexican drug cartels? What is wrong when these same guns are used to kill American agents in Mexico? What is wrong when the Department of Justice and White House claim no knowledge of this action?
Operation “Fast and Furious” seems to have no owners. The story is these guns were deliberately sold to the cartels as a sting operation. A sting against whom? We sold them to the cartels, what did we expect? This brings into question the competence of both the ATF and Department of Justice. These departments are supposed to protect us not kill our people. Perhaps these are candidates for budget cuts? Keith C. De Filippis San Jose, California
