ATF Director Issues Clear Threat of "Consequences" to Future Whistle Blowing Agents (Youtube)

The ATF director, Warner Jones, appears to be taking issue with those meddlesome employees who also took issue with what ultimately amounts to stupid, nefarious and vacuously un-American ploys, as perpetrated by the ATF leadership in a master plan to undermine Americans' right to bear arms, in the Fast and Furious government gun-running scandal.
At this point it becomes clear: The only reason we know what we know about what happened to border agent Brian Terry is due to a relative few ATF agents who chose to honorably serve their country, rather than adhere to the dictates of a leadership that's become completely adrift in a radical ideology.
These whistle-blowing agents were the only way we were able to, at least, get close to the truth; well, until Obama locked the entire process down with his executive privilege maneuver.
Gee, wonder what they are hiding?
But even better, is this the actual reason for the ATF Director's admonition to ATF agents and employees, in the first place, in the above YouTube video?
Senator Grassley and Rep. Issa, upon seeing the video, immediately fired off a letter to Director Jones, essentially warning him that his video could easily be construed as a threat, while asking for clarification. We expect the Congressional Officials will not receive any sort of clarification from our ATF, such is the perverse lawlessness that now seems to pervade virtually every sector of our increasingly authoritarian government.
But when the Director warns of "consequences," this is quite obviously a threat to any future agents who might be considering "coming out" with the rest of the absent truth.
In fact, this is a rather transparent attempt by the obnoxious Director to quell any others from coming forth and connecting the dots for our missing truths that would finally bring this case to some form of closure.
The government's whistle blower laws are very explicit with regard to those who would think to threaten or block individuals who come forward with damning information. However, the true irony in all of this would have to be that America's whistle blower laws were largely designed, at least initially, for the US private sector.
Unfortunately, our whistle blower laws were probably never designed for what would amount to a renegade government agency, and therein lies the highly abrasive rub, as it regards the increasingly autocratic Obama regime.
But logic would dictate that these secrets being withheld from what was supposed to be the most transparent administration ever, and which Obama has dubiously protected under executive privilege, might in fact provide the details which will speak to an agency that may have been under orders from a much higher principality.
