We Need a Special Prosecutor

As illustrated by Joe's Quote of the day—David Voth:
Please accept this letter in lieu of completing an ATF Form 4473 for the purchase
of four (4) CAI, Model Draco, 7.62x39 mm pistols, by Special Agent John Dodson. These
aforementioned pistols will be used by Special Agent Dodson in furtherance of the
performance of his official duties. In addition, Special Agent Dodson has not been
convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. If you have any questions,
you may contact me at telephone number 602-605-6501.

Letter implicates ATF in committing straw purchases for Gunwalker
Go to Joe's for commentary, and an image of the letter itself.

After the Special Prosecutor is through, and a fair trial, the obvious recourse is:

People are dead. People died because some government bureaucrats decided to enhance their agency and set the stage for greater regulatory power by deliberately conspiring to break the laws they were supposed to be enforcing.  People died--including Federal Law Enforcement Agents, just like the ATF agents who ordered firearms dealers to allow the illegal sales that armed the murderers.

No one died in Watergate.  No one died in Iran-Contra.  No one died in Whitewater/Monicagate.  No one died at Solyndra or Lightsquared*. 

Now, maybe in the big, long-term picture, say, two hundred years down the road, any of those will be seen as more significant historical events, but I'd say that, in terms of common criminality, Fast and Furious/GunWalker is at least as heinous a crime as the others listed.  \

ATF Delenda Est!

 *Although, with the interference that Lightsquared's technology creates for other communications modes, the potential is there.
