Not Quite the Hatfield's VS McCoy's

The long standing turf war between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATF), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), persists despite repeated efforts by the Justice Department to settle the conflict.

In what can be be described as childish behavior, agents “race each other to crime scenes,
withhold information from each other and refuse to train together.”
These findings are included in a draft report from the Justice Department's
Office of the Inspector General.

This childish behavior has only proved to be a boon to the Patriot
(Sovereign-Citizen), Militia and Survivalist communities.
Agents are in such a hurry to "beat" each other to crime scenes,
they often skip Communication Security (COMSEC) protocols,
providing a wealth of information to those groups with Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) units.

By withholding information from each other,
they provide those with poor Operational Security (OPSEC),
much needed time and breathing room to correct deficiencies.
By refusing to train together they open the window to friendly-fire accidents,
mishandling of evidence and mistakes in general.

So let the BATF and the FBI remain bitterly feuding rivals,
in the long run their feud remains a positive thing for all those in the Patriot (Sovereign-Citizen),
Militia and Survivalist communities.


This rivalry could lead to more incidents like Waco and Ruby Ridge,
as these agencies try to one-up each other to gain favor with the usurping overlord.
Evidence will be fabricated and witnesses will be manufactured.
Expect illicit payouts to questionable informants or promises of leniency to
felons for their cooperation.
