No, The Consumer Products Safety Commission Does Not Have A SWAT Team

An important correction in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week: “The Consumer Products Safety Commission does not have a SWAT team. An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that it does.” So that’s good. Or maybe sort of disappointing. The context was an excerpt from an upcoming book about the recent trend of unlikely government agencies using Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams. Like the Department of Education, or NASA.
