NO MATTER WHAT reasons they give to say it was a legitimate investigative technique
NOTHING can excuse them blaming US gun owners. Violenced increases after THEY sent cartels thousands of guns, and they moved to curtail OUR rights.
This is truly a legitimate reason that that the Obama government must be removed through impeachment.

Was Brian terry killed in the US or in Mexico?

"A single penetrating gunshot wound to the torso" - that's how 40 year old Brian Terry died on December 14th, 2010. Terry was amongst of group of specialized Border Patrol agents tracking suspected border bandits north of Rio Rico, AZ when he was fatally wounded.

According to the autopsy report, the bullet entered Terry's lower back and traveled upward, severing his spinal cord and the main artery to his heart. The bullet came from an AK-47 obtained by the gunman via the ATF's "Fast and Furious" operation.

I found the poem authored by Agent Brian Terry to be very telling as to the makeup of this very remarkable man.

Thank you. I mis-heard the 18 miles comment and thought that his death took place inside of Mexico.

I am listening to the testimony and can not believe the Incompetence of the superiors.

At a very minimum Holder must be asked to resign he is the enabling hand of the Obama Admins path of destruction.

Wow, Issa is ticked off!

Ms. Terry (Brian’s mother) said an agent came to her residence and basically gave her no info on the murder of her son. She said she’s relied on the media for answers/info of her son’s murder.

Someone is going done in the DOJ.

One agent, when asked how many guns were purchased under the F&F, said about 2500.

He was then asked how many (guesstimate) have been recovered and he said 300-800 which means there are 1700-2200 unaccounted for. Finally, he was asked how many of these (another guesstimate) unaccounted guns are in Mex and how many in the USA. He said about 2-1 Mexico.

Seems there’s an attempt here to turn this hearing into a discussion about anti-gun laws against the American citizen.

Wow, every single agent that has testified has thrown his/her superiors (i.e., Holder) under the bus.

This is not looking good!

No, it is not looking good for Obama, Holder DOJ.Remember Obama and Holder are on video tape saying they know nothing about this and there are highly reputable and I am sure protected whistle blowers, as well as a paper trail even with Obama/DOJ et al agencies involved ignoring subpoena’s muchless agent testimony.

Agreed. Everyone seems to remember this constant news coverage 09-10 of how the mexican drug cartel purchased their AK-47’s at US gun shows. Therefore Obama was pushing for strict gun laws and or a shut down of gun shows on American soil.

Atleast one innocent federal agent is DEAD because of Obama wanting anti-gun news to further anti-gun legislation.

A federal agent DEAD because of democratic politics gun grabbing. It is beyond shocking it is criminal and Obama better resign before he goes to jail.But he claims he had no idea this happened. CBS even reported the orders for this backwards sting came from Washington. It is a no brainer in the chain of command Obama ordered this.

The ATF and Eric Holder’s DOJ is just looking dumber by the minute, and extremely unprofessional for not even asking these basic questions.

Sorry, won't happen.

It will be a high level supervisor in BATFEces that is not one of "Holders people." There will (now) be great fanfare in the MSM and little Ø'Bammy and Holder will take credit for "righting a wrong."

At best, Holder might get a bit of poop on the bottom of his shoe.

Again, sorry...

Interesting when Giffords was shot phones rang off the hook hoping the gun could not be traced to f&f.

Yet the BP agent was just killed in line of duty.

I hate this administration.

That is the way to do it. Let the pressure build upward. Unlike Holder, these guys cannot get jobs at “Progressive” think tanks when their job in the Obummer administration ends - these guys have careers to save.

Holder Testimony

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NqH88cSBqI

Obama states he and Holder were not informed nor did he or Holder authorize

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/03/03/eveningnews/main20039031.shtml?tag=contentMain;contentBody

Obama will have to prove his DOJ went rogue without his knowledge. Even a President with zero character can’t deny his responsibility of command for his DOJ.
