Purchasing Silence the BATF Way

There's no other way to read this move:  it's buying silence.

The [B]ATF has promoted three key supervisors of a controversial sting operation that allowed firearms to be illegally trafficked across the U.S. border into Mexico.

That's not the best part.

McMahon was promoted Sunday to deputy assistant director of the ATF's Office of Professional Responsibility and Security Operations — the division that investigates misconduct by employees and other problems.

All of these yahoos have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that their professional judgment doesn't match that of Barney Fife. 

A new President will be well-advised to remove every member of the BATF's entire management. 

Every single one.
