Abolish the ATF

I argue that the Fast and Furious Fiasco  is so substantial that the Bureau should be abolished “to encourage the others”.

Voltaire observed “It’s a good thing to kill an admiral now and then to encourage the others.” This observation inspires me to suggest  that when an agency carries out  such a  bit of  idiotic malfeasance as the ATF’s operation “Fast and Furious” with the cooperation of agents at all levels of the spectrum, an operation which resulted , among other things in the murder of a U.S. customs agent and prominent relative of a Mexican official, it’s time to dissolve the operation and dismiss all of its employees. To encourage the others.
