    'Project Gunrunner' Whistleblower Says ATF Sent Him Terminat

    'Project Gunrunner' Whistleblower Says ATF Sent Him Termination Notice

    By Maxim Lott

    Published June 27, 2011

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is being accused of retaliating against an agent who helped publicize the agency’s role in allowing thousands of guns to cross the U.S. border and fall into the hands of Mexican drug gangs.

    The agent, Vince Cefalu, who has spoken out about the ATF's so-called "Project Gunrunner" scandal, says he was served with termination papers just last week, and he calls the move politically motivated.

    “Aside from Jay Dobyns, I don't know of anyone that's been more vocal about ATF mismanagement than me,

    This crap just escalated to a new level and one or more of these things will happen

    1. Once he is terminated and no longer an agent; they will have some one knock him off and say he was distressed over loosing his job and committed suicide ... this is like out of Bill / Hillary Clinton's playbook

    2. This is VERY Illegal what they just did; but they can also use it to shut him up. He will be offered a bribe (Settlement) for this illegal firing with the stipulation he cannot talk about Gun Runner or he'll lose his payoff

    3. The man will just come up missing ... also out of Bill / Hillary Clinton's playbook

    When is Eric Holder going to get his letter? We have been waiting far too long. And we have the nerve to call other countries corrupt. What a JOKE.

    Obama names anti-gun extremist as next BATFE head -



    Well, it's official (if misspelled, in the New York Times)--Andrew Traver is President Obama's choice to be the BATFE's next Supreme Leader:



    Nearly two years into his term, President Obama on Monday finally chose a director for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Mr. Obama will submit the name of Andrew Taver [sic], the special agent in charge of the bureau’s Chicago field division, to the Senate for consideration, the White House said.


    This, no doubt, will immensely please the Brady Campaign, who will probably try to imply that it was their complaining--and complaining (pdf file)--that inspired this action.

    That Traver's would be the name eventually submitted has been suspected for months, with the first (to my knowledge) to bring up the possibility being Mike Vanderboegh, back in early July. In that post, Mr. Vanderboegh documented some of Traver's hostility to the right to keep and bear arms:

    But there is more to Traver than selfless service to his community. He is an anti-firearm rights zealot. He is on record as opposing so-called "assault rifles" in the hands of citizens. Worse, he is a prominent member of the virulently anti-firearm International Association of Chiefs of Police.

    The NBC Chicago "news" story in which Traver expresses his opposition to private ownership of so-called "assault weapons" is something, it turns out, that I have discussed before, as has National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea (video of that story can be seen to the left). One of my favorite parts of the NBC piece was this:

    Traver says the power and randomness of the heavy caliber, military-style weapons make them so dangerous not only to people, but to police.

    Forgetting the "heavy caliber" nonsense, when discussing guns that are considered to be of pretty marginal power by most deer hunters, is Traver trying to say that police are not people? The "Only Ones" superhuman enough, apparently.

    The question now is whether or not the Senate will confirm him. The New York Times article says "he may face a confirmation fight" (and David Codrea points out that there had better be one). The recent Washington Post anti-gun series (discussed here) seems to imply that such a fight is inevitable:


    In August, sources in the ATF said Andy Traver, a special agent in charge of the ATF in Chicago, was being considered for the job. Gun-lobby representatives immediately said they would oppose his nomination because they thought he was too close to gun-control activists.


    It's hard to know when the confirmation fight will commence--will Obama try to ram it through the Senate during the lame duck session, before the Democrat majority shrinks considerably, or does he think it can happen even in the face of a considerably more Republican Senate next year? Perhaps Traver will be a recess appointment, and thus become Acting Director through late 2012. That, actually, might be the biggest threat. Mike Vanderboegh has said that this route will be attractive to the DoJ, since it would avoid the problem with confirmation hearings--those inconvenient questions under oath.

    If that's what happens, expect an all out assault on gun ownership, and an energized forcible citizen disarmament lobby. Keep your powder dry.

    Vince Cefalu is still on the ATF payroll, but he has lost his badge and the ATF is trying to figure out how to terminate his employment.

    That fellow needs some help. He needs some friends too... Pit Bulls, Chihuahuas, and Doberman Pinchers! Can't they put him under the witness protection agency somehow?
