Jerry Seper, writing in the Washington Times brings up an important question
in the case of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. The indictment against
one of the Mexicans who killed Terry (he was wounded and captured) has been
sealed by the Federal District Court in the Southern District of California in
San Diego, which (supposedly) is prosecuting the case. Terry, as we know, was
killed by two weapons involved in the ATF's Fast and Furious operation. Prior to
sealing, the indictment indicated that the killers were part of an organized
group that was seeking to hunt down and kill Border patrol agents. The question
is also being asked whether agents were firing bean-bag rounds at the suspects,
and if so, why?
Several points stick out here aside from the obvious outrages of the Fast and
Furious scandal and its on-going cover-up by the Department of Justice and
others. Why is this indictment sealed? What are they trying to keep from
becoming public knowledge? Is our government trying to conceal from the public
just out-of-control our border with Mexico is? Are they trying to cover up the
fact that they are sending BP agents into these areas armed with bean-bag firing
shotguns instead of the lethal force that they know the traffickers possess?
Just what kind of government negligence and malfeasance are we dealing with
If all this is true, what he have here is a case of a government that refuses
to effectively secure our borders and compounds it by sending in Border Patrol
agents to deal with well-armed, organized killers and fight them with
beanbags-only to be killed by weapons furnished to the traffickers courtesy of
Operation Fast and Furious!
Don't Border Patrol head Alan Bersin and DHS head Janet Napolitano have a
duty to explain to the family of Brian Terry how this could happen? Forget about
the dishonest and corrupt Eric Holder. He is busy denying his own responsibility
and need to apologize to the Terry family.
Where the Hell is the outrage?
