The Justice Department has switched its position and said an ATF agent may publish a book about the agency’s bungled gun smuggling sting operation “Fast and Furious,” the Associated Press reports.
The department said it was notifying the ACLU, which is representing ATF agent John Dodson, that the book could be published.
The department previously tried to stop the publication, saying federal employees are generally banned from making profits off of their work.
But for law enforcement reasons, the AP wrote, some parts of the book, “The Unarmed Truth,” will be redacted.
