Can't we all just get along? Can the FBI and the ATF?

Some people are short tmpered and easely agitated, others simply have trouble working with others It's bad enough when private persons get in eachothers hair and commit monstrous acts, but this strikes me as pretty problematic:

The FBI and ATF were supposed to be merged five years ago, but still the FBI is refusing to ATF acces to certain information. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Their agents have threatened to arrest eachother, found eachother in their nets during sting operations, ...

Why not cooperate? Maybe they're scared of getting accused of willfull errors by an agancy where perjury is protocol? For whathever reason, this is not a good thing! There's officers out there trying to fight crime, I want these offciers to have acces to the best intel available.
I'm not exactly a fan of the patriot act, but information that they have collected through legitimate and fair (in a democratic sense) manner should be available to all people who serve to protect the general public!

WOW, I can't blame them much for not trusting the ATF.
