The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.

Perhaps he should do what many authors have done in the past-Ghost write it under another author's name. The info will still get out and the ATF would have nothing to say about it. There might even be ways around the "outside employment" issue if a lawyer is smart enough.

Also, any "over/under" about how long it will take for Dodson to be punished AGAIN? This administration seems to be ALL about punishing whistle-blowers.

Wow,
That's a good enough reason for a government agency to decide whether someone can publish a true account of their activity

Good to know the government now considers "hurting morale" by reporting corruption an exception to the 1st Amendment.

ACLU was getting involved in this too. This book is coming out with or without gvt. approval. They can suck it, they cannot prevent this for "any reason".
