ATF review board reportedly recommends firings over 'Furious'
Starting at the top ??

Four senior managers who oversaw the ill-fated federal gun-tracking probe called “Fast and Furious” will be fired if recommendations from a disciplinary panel are accepted.

People familiar with the matter said the Professional Review Board of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent notices of its decision in recent days to bureau managers, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

In addition, two lower-level employees face disciplinary actions, short of firing. The move from the ATF’s review board is the first step in what could be a months-long process, including appeals.

Operation Fast and Furious was a gun probe run by ATF agents in Phoenix in 2009 and 2010. Agents allowed sales of about 2,000 guns, costing about $1.5 million, to suspected smugglers. The aim was to track the weapons across the Mexico border and prosecute top traffickers, but agents seized only about 100 of the firearms.

Many of the guns turned up at crimes scenes, including at the site where U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in December 2010.

I hope they get canned...

And their superiors all the way up. Accountability has to start somewhere.
And I bet the review board only spent $50 million to determine this... Dodgy
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.
Firing scapegoat nobodies who did the under-the-radar job they were asked to... Yay.

Yeah, which is why I hope this goes higher. This being said, if they were involved, they were involved and should still be canned, IMO.
