English term or phrase:Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Unit
"The 51 -day siege was triggered when the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Unit entered the compound. There was an effort at negotiation but it appears that serious mistakes were made, insufficient use was made of the expertise that does exist on extreme religious cults, and on the Branch Davidian cult and its leader, David Koresh, in particular." What kind of unit? I've never heard of it. Thanx in advance.
