Fast and Furious whistleblower demands 'Fortune' retract story

E-mail Print PDF

John DodsonJohn Dodson, the Special Agent who blew the whistle on the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, is calling on Fortune Magazine to retract its landmark article asserting that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives "never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels."

In a letter addressed to Fortune managing editor Andrew Serwer yesterday, obtained by POLITICO, Dodson's lawyer called reporter Katherine Eban's article "demonstrably false in many respects" when compared to a report from the Justice Department Inspector General released earlier this month, and said "a retraction is in order to correct the record."

"At a minimum, Fortune was on notice that this conclusion was dubious at the time the article was published, as this conclusion had already been publicly contradicted not only by the whistleblowers who had first-hand knowledge of Fast and Furious, but also by the White House, Attorney General Eric Holder, ATF Director Kenneth Melson, and the majority and minorit y staff reports of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform," Robert N. Driscoll, a lawyer at Alston & Bird LLP, wrote in the letter, sent to Serwer via email.

By contrast, he went on to argue, Eban's "tale" was "based largely on one source" that failed to persuade the Inspector General.
