 **Washington D.C. - **According to credible ATF sources,  officials heavily involved in Operation Fast and Furious and named as  partially responsible for the program's failure by Department of Justice  Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the House Oversight Committee  have been stripped of their government security clearances while some  have been fired, demoted, and transferred. Criminal charges are also  reportedly pending.
  Former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division Bill  Newell, former ATF Special Agent in Charge of Operations in the West  Bill McMahon and former Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix  Field Division George Gillett have been fired while former Assistant  Special Agent in Charge Jim Needles and Field Supervisor David Voth have  been demoted. Hope McAllister, the lead case agent for Fast and  Furious, has been put on leave and transferred out of Phoenix according  to reports. McMahon and ATF came under heavy fire just a few months ago  after it was revealed McMahon had been receiving ATF paid leave while  pulling a six figure salary from J.P. Morgan, the same bank that owns  the bureau's credit cards.
  In addition to involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, the  consequences for these officials come as a result of their handling of  the Jay Dobyns' [arson case.](http://townhall.com/columnists/katiepavlich/2011/10/21/atf_ignored_death_threats,_tried_to_frame_whistleblower_agent_to_cover_corruption/page/full/) All are expected to receive full retirement benefits.
  The ATF Public Affairs Division did not return calls for comment. The  Department of Justice Inspector General's Office said they would get  back to Townhall with a comment "sometime next week."

Of course, Obama and his administration will be completely insulated from this.

Two Special Agents in Charge, two Assistant Special Agents in Charge, a Field Supervisor and a lead case agent disciplined, only three of them fired! Woo-@#$%ing-hoo! These were local and regional small fry - field people and people supervising them. They were carrying out the plans and orders of regional and DC big fish. Where are the Big Fish?! Are the Big Fish the ones inflicting these “disciplinary” measures on the small fry who got caught?!

[/quote]They used to talk about Reagan being the telflon president and to some extent Clinton but with Obama the media works overtime covering his behind
