Re: ATF Director, Az. State Attorney sacked...
Some bus! This is the old government trick of kicking an embarrassment upstairs. Technically, Melson's change of office was a demotion, but he will not lose one cent of salary and will likely have as cushy an office as before at a Department level, well above the Bureau level. The U.S. Attorney was reassigned, with no loss of salary or grade level. Both, in other words, were removed from the line of fire and will henceforth be "unavailable" to Congressional investigators. Anyone daring to question their actions in "F and F" will be told they have been "punished" and that it will be "harassment" to keep asking the poor, downtrodden bureaucrats for accountability.
And Holder and Obama, of course, knew nothing about anything.
