ATF retaliating (already) against whistleblowers?

Despite careful efforts to ensure protection for the truthtellers, David Codrea reports that the ATF is already harrassing the Project Gunwalker whistleblowers. (Thanks to EL for the bad word. And kudos to Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh for their original and continuing reporting on Project Gunwalker.)

    “Torpedo . . . LOS!” MEXICAN PRESS PICKS UP ON ‘PROJECT GUNWALKER’!! ATF brass headed for lifeboats?

    The El Diario de El Paso is the primary Spanish-language newspaper for the U.S. city of El Paso, Texas. The paper was founded on May 16, 2005 by El Diario de Juárez. It originally started out as a Mexican newspaper circulated throughout Ciudad Juárez under the name Diario de Juárez. In 1982 Diario de Juárez entered into the El Paso business community by opening a small sales and circulation office. The company became incorporated in Texas as Editora Paso del Norte, Inc..

    The newspaper has a daily circulation of over 20,000 copies (100,000 readers) throughout El Paso. The paper is intended to reach young, active adults (target audience 18- 35) of Hispanic descent in El Paso.

    Founded in February 1976, Diario de Juárez has grown from a 1,000-copy per day newspaper in Ciudad Juárez to now over 100,000 copies daily in Cd. Juárez, in the city of Chihuahua and throughout the state of Chihuahua. Today, El Diario is the fourth largest newspaper in Mexico. — Wikipedia.

    From David Codrea:

    The Spanish language newspaper El Diario de El Paso has published a story on “Project Gunwalker.” Per the Google Translate link of the story appearing on the El Diario de Chihuahua website:

    Contrary to its policy to stop it, America would be allowing the smuggling of firearms into Mexico intentionally during investigations conducted and the neighboring country without knowing it.

    This is one of the allegations have emerged recently in a network by employees of the Bureau of Alcohol, Snuff, Firearms and Explosives (ATF, for its acronym in English), dissatisfied with irregularities alleged to have committed the federal agency. The allegations of arms trafficking were ratified by a source in El Paso.

    Here’s the awful Google translation of the story.

    Can one of you bilingual Threepers do a better translation?
