Of course they were promoted.
They did their jobs to perfection as ordered by Obama-Sunstein-Holder and those from within and afar who own the administration, lock, stock, Qur’an and barrel.
Now these guys are being rewarded for their work and will be diving headlong into the next phase of the administration’s agenda: Getting all weapons away from American citizens by any means necessary.
A report from The Los Angeles Times.
All three have been heavily criticized for pushing the program forward even as it became apparent that it was out of control. At least 2,000 guns were lost and many turned up at crime scenes in Mexico and two at the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
The three supervisors have been given new management positions at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. They are William G. McMahon, who was the ATF’s deputy director of operations in the West, where the illegal trafficking program was focused, and William D. Newell and David Voth, both field supervisors who oversaw the program out of the agency’s Phoenix office.
These gentlemen did exactly what the Obama administration wanted and was ordered to do by their owners.
Poked the lion and stirred the pot, making sure a massive number of evil scary-looking guns were put in the hands of purely evil people, with blame for it all placed squarely on the victims, the throat of the American people and of course, the firearms themselves.
Gotta hand it to the three of ’em and their bosses. Really. I mean that sincerely, because most Americans tend to shy away from committing treason, but these folks seem to take to it perfectly.
Most of us know what’s coming next, so all that remains to be said is: Molon Labe.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Wednesday that three supervisors in its controversial Fast and Furious gun-trafficking investigation were transferred to lateral jobs, not promoted.
“They did not receive salary or grade increases, nor did they assume positions with greater responsibility,” the agency said in a short statement.
I believe it.
Wait…… I need to take my hourly dose of Thorazine and turn on MSNBC before I continue commenting.
OK, that’s better…… Back to the matter at hand.
They were each simply given a laurel…… and hearty handshake as the new sheriffs of Rock Ridge, still tasked with being on point for grabbing guns from every American.
Tell a lie…… Make it big enough…… Repeat it often enough…… It becomes reality.
I’ve heard that before somewhere…… A dude in Europe I believe……. A colleague of a Corporal from Austria if I remember right.
