ATF whistleblower fired over Operation Gunwalker flap

Vince Cefalu, one of the agents who blew the whistle on BATFE participation in Operation Gunwalker, has been fired by the agency.

Guns were allowed to be sold to suspected "straw purchasers" who then smuggled the weapons into Mexico. Department of Justice officials allegedly encouraged the practice to "pad" the number of assault weapons from stateside gun stores that eventually found their way to Mexico in order to bolster the administration's claims that gun sellers are in part responsible for burgeoning crime on the other side of the border in which 40,000 persons have lost their lives over the past 4 years.
