One Year Ago Today, Brian Terry Was Murdered Thanks to Eric Holder's Fast and Furious (Which is kinda like Watergate, Only With 200 Dead)

On the one-year anniversary of Brian Terry's murder at the hands of Eric Holder's Operation Fast and Furious, the family of the slain Border Patrol agent spoke out in The Los Angeles Times.

One year after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in southern Arizona, his family said it believes that if a flawed gun-tracking operation run by federal ATF agents violated any laws, then “those responsible for Fast and Furious should be held criminally liable.”

The comments came Wednesday as a Border Patrol National Honor Guard held a brief ceremony at a cemetery in Flat Rock, Mich., where Terry was raised and is now buried. He was shot late on the night of Dec. 14 last year while his Border Patrol team was working a rugged canyon south of Tucson, and pronounced dead early the next morning. Two firearms recovered at the scene were traced to Operation Fast and Furious.

The operation was run by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, part of the Department of Justice, and allowed illegal buyers to purchase firearms with the [Ed: I think they mean 'no' here, since there was no attempt to track] hope of tracking the weapons to Mexican cartel leaders. But authorities lost track of hundreds of guns, some of which also surfaced later at crime scenes in Mexico.

We find it incomprehensible that members of ATF and DOJ would embark on such an egregious operation and then try to conceal the link between this failed investigation and Brian’s murder,” his family said in a statement. “Much to our dismay, no one in ATF or DOJ has come forward to accept responsibility for Operation Fast and Furious.”

Terry’s family continues to press for answers, and said, “We now believe that if it can be shown that laws were broken, then all those responsible for Fast and Furious should be held criminally liable.”

May Brian Terry and all of the others murdered by this criminal operation rest in peace.

And may Eric Holder and everyone else who orchestrated Murdergate receive swift justice in a court of law.
