Nearly everyone in Washington agrees that — at the very least — President Obama loosely interprets the Constitution. Many are frustrated that he deliberately and egregiously ignores America's fundamental document in jaw-dropping proportions.
Washington Times Exclusive: The federal agent who blew the whistle on the Fast and Furious scandal is suddenly unwelcome at the very Border Patrol agency he sought to protect.
Mexican police have arrested a third suspect in the December 2010 killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry, whose death drew light on Operation Fast and Furious, a botched plan by the U.S. government that was meant to track guns smuggled to Mexico.
The Obama administration has an enemies list, and John Dodson was on it. The special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) infuriated his superiors by alerting Congress and everyone else about the government's gunrunning scheme called Fast and Furious.
Fifteen months before the Fast & Furious gun scandal was unmasked in public, Homeland Security agents along the Arizona border recognized that their colleagues at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were allowing illegal guns to flow across the border to Mexican drug gangs in violation of federal policy.
Come Jan. 2, 2013, 3,400 Border Patrol agents, 932 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents, and 802 ICE deportation and removal officers are going to lose their jobs. Unless President Obama forces Congress to break the gridlock on budget decisions, the layoffs are certain.
The former head of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told congressional investigators he discovered the Obama administration's original account to Congress about the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal was inaccurate as early as March 2011 and urged the Justice Department to correct the record, an action that did not formally occur until eight months later.

Federal police have arrested two men who may be connected with the fatal shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent just north of the Mexico-Arizona border, a Mexican law enforcement official said Thursday.
Investigators were scouring a rugged area near the U.S.-Mexico line for evidence in the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent.
A U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed and another wounded in a shooting early Tuesday in Arizona near the U.S.-Mexico line, according to the Border Patrol.
A civil lawsuit filed Monday by House Republicans asks a federal court to enforce a congressional subpoena of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in his refusal to turn over documents sought in an investigation by a House committee into the failed Fast and Furious gunrunning operation.
The American people finally have heard of Brian Terry. He is the best-known victim of Operation Fast and Furious, an Obama administration conventional-weapons proliferation program. Between November 2009 and January 2011, Team Obama arranged for licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to straw buyers, who transferred them to known violent criminals in Mexico.
Anyone who has spent time in Washington knows government runs on process. There is a procedure for everything, and this is especially true in federal law enforcement, where lives
The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee wants to know who at the Justice Department saw a memo from a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent in Phoenix outlining questionable tactics in the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation, which was forwarded to ATF headquarters and possibly to Justice a day before the department denied that any weapons had been "walked" to Mexico.
