"If it weren’t for John Dodson, Americans would never have known the truth about Operation Fast and Furious and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. This book is his story, a tale of the personal and professional journey of a man who decided to tell the truth, no matter the costs. He didn’t take the easy way out. For that and much more, the American people owe John Dodson a debt of gratitude.”
(Senator Chuck Grassley and Representative Darrell Issa)
About the Author
John Wesley Dodson was born in Virginia. His mother was a custodian at an elementary school and his father was a farmhand. He went straight into the army after his high school graduation, where he worked in intelligence for three years. He was given an honorable discharge and became a deputy. After a long, successful law enforcement career, making detective, and working in the vice-narcotics unit, ATF recruited him in 2005. In late 2009, he was transferred to Phoenix to help start a new group there that would specifically target firearms trafficking, where he became aware of the Fast and Furious program. After blowing the whistle in early 2011, he was transferred to Tucson, Arizona, where he currently resides.
