Obama moves to give more job protections to more agents at the frequently scandalous Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
While Mr. Obama moves to give civil service cover to more agents at ATF, Bloomberg Businessweek opined last year about cutting more ATF "bumblers" loose, and merging what "better agents" the agency has into the FBI.
Even a Bloomberg entity like Businessweek sees ATF as making a mockery of federal law enforcement because it's so poorly run.
But Obama? He moves to protect the agency and its agents by executive order.
