Failing Upwards - The ATF Promotes Key Supervisors Of Fast And Furious

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) just promoted three of the key supervisors behind Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration's program to ship weapons across the Mexican border to armaments deprived Mexican drug lords.

All three have been promoted and given new management positions at the agency's DC headquarters. They are William G. McMahon, who was the ATF's deputy director of operations in the West, where the illegal trafficking program was focused, and William D. Newell and David Voth, both field supervisors who oversaw the program out of the agency's Phoenix office.

In a real laugher, McMahon, believe it not, is now the deputy assistant director of the ATF's Office of Professional Responsibility and Security Operations — the division that investigates misconduct by employees!

If I didn't know better, I'd swear these men are being promoted to better jobs in DC-land as an incentive to keep their mouths shut when it comes to cooperating with Rep. Darrel Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley's investigative committee.

But of course the Obama Administration and AG Eric Holder would never do any thing like that.

Would they?
