President Obama’s nominee to fill the position, ATF acting Director B. Todd Jones, is currently making his way through confirmation proceedings in the Senate Judiciary Committee but has come up against stiff Republican opposition.
The BATF is a bastard child of the "Prohibition" era. They were nothing more than low level liars and scalpers. They were to be phased out in the 1960s. Lyndon Johnson Left Wing Texas New Dealer set out to disarm America. He saw what he needed in the old "Revenuers". LBJ hired more agents to enforce his 1968 gun laws. The rest is disgusting history.

Likely they would devour each other. Agree, FBI does not play well with others. However, the ATF seems at time to be divided between some pretty decent folks, and yo-yos with a badge.
And the threat from Durbin is frustration- he does not like it when he is opposed- and does not have authority or votes to carry out his threat- or he would already have done it. Dirty Dick is from Illinois- what else would you expect?
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
