Fast & Furious: FBI may have covered up third gun found at scene of agentís death to protect
Hot Air ^ | 9/19/11 | Allahpundit

Two new pieces of the puzzle here, one published 10 days ago and the other just this afternoon. We already knew that Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered in December with two AK-47s sold by the ATF through the F&F operation. That’s what broke the scandal open, of course — American law enforcement gunned down with weapons ingeniously provided to Mexican drug cartels by … American law enforcement. What we didn’t know until recently is that there might have been more than two guns recovered at the scene. Enter CBS brandishing a snippet of audio between an ATF agent and the gun dealer who assisted the ATF in selling those AK-47s that points to three guns having been found. Why didn’t we know that? Because the legal filings in the case took care not to mention it:

Court records have previously only mentioned two weapons: Romanian WASR “AK-47 type” assault rifles. Both were allegedly sold to suspects who were under ATF’s watch as part of Fast and Furious.

Also, a ballistics report turned over to Congressional investigators only mentions the two WASR rifles. The ballistics report says it’s inconclusive as to whether either of the WASR rifles fired the bullet that killed Terry.

“...weapons ingeniously provided to Mexican drug cartels by … American law enforcement.”

Not ingeniously, but more like criminally.

I’ve been around FBI men and I would be surprised if this is true. They have to know DOJ will turnover in a few months.
Plus, nobody likes having to endlessly testify as Mr. Holder surely will.

Field agents are the problem. I think it is the top brass who are responsible.

Did they tell you that an Agent's first rule is *Don't embarass the Bureau?*

Let me turn the question over in my mind:

Men who tried to set up Richard Jewell, men who burned down a church full of women and children:

Would they change a “3 gun” report into a “2 gun” report....?

Gosh...it’s so hard to contemplate, you know?

How many other administrations have killed cops and HUNDREDS —probably thousands— of innocent Mexican civvies and cops...?

Let’s briefly review how many organizations this prez has managed to further tarnish:

1. FBI
2. ATF
3. Ariz DOJ
4. Many gun dealers
5. US Dept. of State

I’m not slowing down, but I think this guy will be toast. Now we have to make sure as many of the ITAR related aspects stick to Hillary, because SHE IS THE NEXT CANDIDATE.

At every turn the additional question of **State Dept culpability** should be pursued with implacable resolve.

The most amazing aspect of this story is how the Legacy Media aside from CBS REFUSES to cover this story.

The reason is simple: POTUS is black, and that means he gets a pass.

DO WE NEED A BUGGY WHIP MEDIA LIKE THAT?
