As one congressman put it: "No one was murdered in Watergate." Now, here is the unbelievable and never-before-told story of the Fast and Furious scandal: the ATF program that sold more than two thousand guns across the border to Mexico in the hopes of catching criminals. Instead, it turned into a bloody gang war, placing American weapons into the hands of Mexico's most violent drug lords and kingpins, resulting in hundreds of deaths on both sides of the border. When American ATF agent Brian Terry was murdered with one of these guns, the scandal broke and led to public outcry-prompting a government cover-up. ATF veteran John Dodson shares the shocking secrets of Fast and Furious in this firsthand account, detailing how he watched guns land in the hands of dangerous drug cartels well on their way to becoming America's deadliest neighbor-with our help. Despite ruthless tactics to get him to back down, John Dodson testified before Congress as to the failures of the program. His experience as an everyday citizen and law enforcement officer standing up to do the right thing when he believed the government was geared to do wrong is patriotism in its purest form. Here, in this tell-all book, he shares with all Americans the truth and why he risked it all-life, love, family, and career-to tell the world about what went wrong., Digital content provided by hoopla., Dodson, John,1971-author., Dodson, John., Drug traffic, First Threshold Editions hardcover edition., Grassley, Charles,writer of introduction., Gunwalking, HV8144.B87D63 2013, Illegal arms transfers, Issa, Darrell,1953-writer of introduction., MWT11044352, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :Threshold Editions,2013, NjBwBTengNjBwBTrdaNjBwBT, Operation Fast and Furious, 2009-2011., POLITICAL SCIENCE / Intelligence & Espionage, POLITICS, Political Science / Political Freedom, Pruden, John,narrator., Read by John Pruden., The unarmed truth :my fight to blow the whistle and expose Fast and Furious, The unarmed truth :my fight to blow the whistle and expose Fast and Furious /John Dodson., Traces the controversial military operation that led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the author's high-risk personal and professional efforts to expose the truth and cover-up., Unabridged., United States.Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives., Whistle blowing, [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc. ,2014., bl2013050325, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781482968798_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume, xiii, 284 pages ;24 cm.
