Is The FBI Suppressing Evidence?
In a follow-up to this morning's Face The Nation interview of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) about Operation Fast and Furious, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson reports that the committee will be asking for more information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Issa said this morning that the family of Agent Terry was told by agents attending his funeral that there were three firearms found at the murder scene.
Documents released to the committee only mentioned two weapons linked to Operation Fast and Furious. Issa wants to know more about the third weapon and what tests from it have shown. Recordings from conversations between ATF Agent Hope McAllister and the owner of Lone Wolf Trading Company seem to indicate there was a third firearm and that it was an SKS.
“FOX blows the Terry murder cover-up to pieces, and the Gunwalker Plot cover-up with it.”
“In addition to the emails obtained by Fox News, an audio recording from a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent investigating the Terry case seems to confirm the existence of a third weapon. In that conversation, the agent refers to an “SKS assault rifle out of Texas” found at the Terry murder scene south of Tucson. (Emphasis supplied, MBV.)”
“The FBI refused to answer a detailed set of questions submitted to officials by Fox News. Instead, agency spokesman Paul Bresson said, “The Brian Terry investigation is still ongoing so I cannot comment.” Bresson referred Fox News to court records that only identify the two possible murder weapons.”
“However, in the hours after Terry was killed on Dec. 14, 2010, several emails written to top ATF officials suggest otherwise.”
That was on Friday, September 9, 2011.
Please keep me posted on this as it unfolds.
You may want to contact MestaMachine and ask to be on his ping list. He follows F&F closely while I combine it with my immigration ping. In fact, his pings to me help me get my list together. But yes, my daily ping will include all I can locate on F&F as well...
