BATFE Implicated in More Rogue Operations

Over the last several years, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) has been plagued by mismanagement, scandal and rogue operations, the most infamous of which has been the ill-fated and deadly "Fast and Furious" debacle. Despite these ongoing problems and the criticism and calls for reform they have generated, BATFE has continued its practice of questionable tactics and judgment.

In fact, over the course of the last week, numerous media outlets have reported on yet another dubious BATFE operation--this one lowering the bar to a new, disturbing level.
