ATF Misplaces 420M Cigarettes

Quote:The Justice Department's internal watchdog says the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives mounted dozens of undercover investigations into illicit cigarette sales without proper approval. It says the agency misused some of $162 million in profits from the stings — including overpaying an informant by millions of dollars — and lost track of at least 420 million cigarettes.


The report cited a widespread lack of ATF oversight in the agency's use of "churning investigations," undercover operations using proceeds from illicit cigarette sales to pay for ATF expenses.

Why is our government so incompetent?
It seems like their legitimacy has gone up in smoke.

"(ATF Head Todd) Jones said the agency has adopted most of those guidelines. While accepting responsibility for "management and oversight lapses that allowed those deficiencies to develop," he insisted that "the report's findings do not reflect current ATF policy or practice in this area."

Oh, that's a relief. Because we can trust HIM... he's from the government, and the Federal government hasnt lied to the American people in a long time.

Like 17 minutes.

It's a good thing that these are the people who keep track of the whereabouts of all our fully automatic weapons.
