BATFE Expose Coming?

Arms and the Law:

I am informed that the issue of Soldier of Fortune magazine will cover a Dept of Justice Inspector General's report on [B]ATFE deployment in Iraq. Gist of reports is that millions have been claimed in fraudulent overtime (as in everyone consistently reporting 16 hour workdays, 7 days a week, or everyone reporting 15.5 hour workdays).

Who coulda thunk it? Federal employees CHEATING? LYING? DEFRAUDING?

There's never been a question that BATFE has a lot of rogues on the payroll.

This should be fun...

Having spent a good part of the last couple of years in Iraq, let me gently suggest that "16 hours a day, 7 days a week" isn't much of an exaggeration. If BATFE's officers are working like the military's field grades, it may not be an exaggeration at all.
