Obama Admin Seals Records of Murdered Border Patrol Agent Implicated in Fast and Furious
Weekly Standard ^ | 11-30-11 | MARK HEMINGWAY

Posted on 11/30/2011 9:25:44 AM PST by bayouranger

And to think thatAttorney General Eric Holder is getting testy about congressional calls for his resignation. After all, the Justice Department has nothing to hide, right?:

The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.

This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the “most transparent” administration in history? After all, the rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizona’s Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels.

The murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent is related to a Justice Department willingly turning over thousands of guns to Mexican criminal gangs, and Obama administration is hiding information about his death from the public. Amazing.

Congress could require that these records be opened and made public. So could the courts. I wonder if anyone in Washington has the courage to let the truth be known.

This is just plain nuts..not to mention criminal.. Can’t these be subpoened? What exactly does ‘sealed’ mean? After all, if Axelrod’s people can access court records to damage an opponent, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get them...But then again, this is 0bama and Holder we’re talking about.

Never have I been more disgusted or distrusting of those in charge. This cannot stand.

Felon-crats can do whatever they want.

Have you ever seen those sealed records on Dead Ted’s misadventure?

Ever seen Obama’s non-existing birth records, his college records, etc, etc?

Issa already has. Of course the administration would actually end up appointing the counsel. Or Justice Dept itself.

Expect the sound of crickets.

It would seem the State has a say in all that. It was a murder within their borders.

Sealed just like almost everything else that might be damaging about Obama.

The GOP is getting ripped over each candidate's history, while Obama has essentially NO history. We know SO little about him. Birth records sealed, kindergarten records sealed, high school records sealed, college records sealed, transcripts sealed, passport records sealed, why he lost his law license sealed, Even his thesis papers. MOST people are proud of those. Those would tell us a lot about the man's core beliefs...

what Obama's classmate at Occidental said he was like at that time:

Marlzberg: OK, So there's Barry Obama, and... tell me why you believe that he was a Marxist back then? Drew: OK, well my most vivid memory is how INSISTENT he was in arguing a Marxist / Leninist point of view. I was arguing a more moderate Marxist view that just said that even though a lot of Marxist ideas were correct, it was implausible that we would ever see a revolution led by the working class to overthrow the elite. And Obama did NOT buy that AT ALL. He made a very principled, dedicated, impassioned argument that in fact, a REAL revolution was coming. And in a sense, we should all get on board and prepare ourselves physically and emotionally for that revolution. ... Marlzberg: yea, and so, OK, he wasn't ambitious at the time. But the revolution, that he saw coming, this fit in with some other remarks you made, about the United States, where you say that you believe that Obama perceived America as the ENEMY. In what sense? Drew: He DEFINITELY saw America as the enemy. He believed that the ruling elite had rigged our economic system so that it CAUSED people to be poor. And it was immoral, and it was wrong, and the only way you could tip things back so we all could enjoy a more prosperous lifestyle, was to redistribute the wealth.

Poorly worded headline. The agent was killed by one of the guns allowed to "walk" into Mexico.

But this whole thing is not "organic", and is being promoted by the media, according to Holder.

Axelrod, Plouffe, Obama, Napalitano, and the whole cabal belong in jail. A jail built with stimulus funds with no heat or cooling in order to promote green initiatives, and kick back $500,000 to the DNC for the $50,000,000 of taxpayer money spent to build it.

At least one of the rifles used by the drug dealers was sold thru approval of the Fast and Furious.

When that word leaked out, the feds stopped checking the other weapons found at the scene.

From Katie Pavlich, Townhall, (Nov. 15, 2011):

Fast and Furious: Case Files on Terry Murder Have Disappeared, Gone

“...I was told by a friend of the Terry family last week that after Brian Terry’s death, his mother, Josephine Terry, along with other family members, were prohibited for weeks from entering Brian’s home. Things here just aren’t adding up. Considering the case was sealed by a federal judge, the file must have been stolen by someone on the inside. 

Remember, U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke resigned on August 31, 2011. Burke’s office was handling the case before it was moved to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego on September 6, 2011, just days after Burke’s resignation. Now, the case files for the prosecution, dripping with details about Brian Terry’s murder, a result of the Obama Justice Department’s Fast and Furious, has disappeared.”
