    Can he quit the ATF, then sell the book?

    Also, someone needs to look up the Streisand effect.

    Better idea. Sell the book to the publisher outright, and have them attach a pseudonym to it.

    I don't think so... as he would have to sign like confidentially agreements... like when we bought this farm my chick had to fill out paperwork showing them all her interests in here and making sure there is no conflict of interest etc...

    They didn't try to attack specific content, or claim that there was false information in the book, so it sounds like it's all true, and it's all bad.

    It's not even that... again depending on agency you sign a shit ton of stuff saying you will not blab about what you have seen... as say you worked for a regulating agency like the FDA... and saw the Coke formula... that sort of thing.

    This has nothing to do with protecting military secrets, or not contributing to illicit activity. The excuse given was it would hurt morale, but basically they are saying "don't publish this book, because it will make us look like liars and/or incompetent assholes".

    I can't imagine a fast and furious book would be very interesting:

    The car chased the other car. The car drove faster. The other car also increased its speed. The car hit another car. The other car also hit a car. Then they drove fast some more.

    I heard there's something about an airfield track that was super long that got everyone hot and bothered.

    Quit and publish it anyway. He'd probably make more money that way than retiring.

    Does that thing you sign count if the agency is involved with illegal activity?

    The empty suits in charge have been trying to fire him for blowing the whistle on their illegal operations.

    The truth will set you free...
