Dick gun -- it's a story we brought you last week with senator Charles Grassley.
And how the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives agents allegedly sold firearms to criminals.
And two of these weapons were recovered at the murder scene of US Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Here on this outrage is an ATF agent who blew the whistle on the ATF's bad conduct.
He's also the author I'm no Angel.
My harrowing undercover journey to the inner circle of the hell's angels.
James -- Welcome to freedom watch.
Judge thank you for having me.
And yet you're willing to come on national television.
And explain this operation gun runner why are you doing that and briefly what happened what operation gun runner.
What did the ATF do or permit to be done.
Well I'm speaking out against the agency because there's a handful of people who displayed the courage to call while corrupt.
Nature of the management of ATF and and what happened in gun runner.
Is that a violation of our mandate took place -- we are.
Told by congress to stand in the way of violent crime and to prevent.
Guns from getting into the hands of criminals and during gun runner ATF did exactly the opposite of that and armed the enemy.
And what was the reason for which.
Armed -- the enemy and knowingly allowed weapons to travel from the US into the hands of dangerous Mexican gangs.
Well to begin with it was a ridiculous plan developed at the highest levels of ATF.
And they're doing it trying to.
Their own position with regards to crime guns and in doing so they were letting guns go -- to Mexico.
To track where those guns were ending up.
And that plan the flawed plan resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens and the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
This is this sort of like of volunteer fireman.
Starts a fire so that he can report the fire.
And be a hero for putting the fire out but the fire gets out of control and destroys the property is supposed to be saving or kills the people he's supposed to protect.
Well you know I'll tell you how ridiculous it is that you know what I was shot and run over.
Trying to apprehend suspects who had gotten their hands on.
ATF owned guns that's how serious.
ATF is supposed to take.
Our weapons weapons that we possess getting into the hands of suspects that's the extreme levels we went to I spill blood for this agency trying to make sure.
That's suspects don't get crime guns you in and gun runner the exact opposite policy took place.
You are still in the ATF what what has happened to you.
As a result of your whistle blowing -- what is likely to happen to you as a result of this interview.
-- neither one is good I've had eight years of death and violence threats.
That were ignored by the administration.
My house was burned down in 2008 that was ignored by the administration.
And there's a historical -- institutional policy and ATF to retaliate against anybody that wants to tell the truth so.
This won't be good for me personally but the truth has to get out.
Are there other ATF agents like you.
Willing to blow the whistle.
On this fellow William bill -- lawyer his assistant George skillet and however these people aware that concocted this operation gun -- Absolutely several step forward.
Literally hundreds are standing on the sidelines watching this polling for the success of it.
And -- and Gillette.
Are exactly the people that were responsible for ignoring the threats against me and the president.
And the attorney general are aware of the conclusions.
That those guys operate ATF's business in a reckless and dangerous way and they did nothing about it what why is it that you think the president.
Is doing nothing about and the attorney general actually claimed he knew nothing about it.
You know when the president came into office he demanded transparency in government.
And there is no transparency on this why is DOJ.
Denying senator Grassley and congressman -- of the documents that they need to seek the truth.
Why is that being denied if there's a demand for transparency in government.
