Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's Parents Release Statement
One News Page.com ^ | 6/20/12 | staff

Posted on 06/20/2012 5:53:24 PM PDT by Nachum

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s mother and father released a statement today on President Obama’s executive privilege.

“Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth.”

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry “was killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department gun trafficking investigation. For more than 18 months we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability. The documents sought by the House Oversight Committee and associated with Operation Fast and Furious should be produced and turned over to the committee. Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious.”

Agent Terry was shot on December 14, 2010 and he died the following day. Fast & Furious has also claimed the lives of over 300 Mexicans.

Josephine Terry appeared on Philadelphia Talk Radio 1210 WPHT today. She was asked about President Obama asserting executive privilege over the Fast & Furious documents.

This bunch is not an Administration, it is a criminal enterprise run by a bunch of amateur Chicago thugs.
Impeach, convict and sentence the top 10 immediately!

No matter how this turns out, Terry did not die in vain.

His death indirectly saved the lives of thousands, perhaps even millions, of Americans. Given what we now know about F and F, perhaps even the Republic itself.

A statue of him will probably never be made, but it should.

The communist media and everyone connected with the cover-up will protect the perpetrators of her son's death. Not to worry, concerned Americans will find the information on the internet, because the communist media is no longer a trusted source of information for Americans.

It appears O-learned-about-it-on-the-news and Holder are as guilty as if they'd pulled the trigger themselves; why else would they fail to comply with the request for documents that would prove otherwise?

And once again the 'doting court eunuchs' of the MSM will fail to notice... Shame on the New York Times. Shame on the Washington Post.

Mrs. Terry was far more graceful in her response than these thugs deserve.

I am so sorry for her, and wonder where the “Justice for Brian” marches are?

God Bless the Terry Family.

I hope the truth will finally come out about Fast and Furious and the Terry Family will get some closure on Agent Brian Terry’s senseless death. I am sure we could never know the pain they feel every day.

I wish them the very best and I know Agent Terry was a fine man. They should be very proud of him.

Definately Agree! If there were ever vermin who deserved punishment it is Eric "the Red" Holder and his master Obozo.

His death certainly saved many lives.

I truly believe it is also going to help us get this Commie SOB and his Chicago thugs voted out of office.

Thanks, MamaDearest. There’s no way this should STILL be going on after 18 months. We know who’s involved and it’s way past time for them to be in prison. Sheriff Joe would be MORE than happy to get a tent ready for them.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s mother and father released a statement today on President Obama’s executive privilege.

Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth.


Whose heart could no go out to these parents, Brian Terry's whole family, friends, and associates?  Well, I believe we are finding out aren't we.

It is sad to see our nation dragged through something like this.  It is sadder still to see stonewalling, lies, obstruction, political maneuvers intended to quash this investigation.

I took the time to watch the Democrats on the Issa Oversight Committee speak out in objection to the Contempt vote today.  I am a thinking man.  If I had doubt about Holder or Obama's involvement, and obstuction here, I would say so.  I have nothing to gain from harassing government figures who are doing a good job.  All I ask from the Democrats, is an open honest participation in these proceedings.  Not one Democrat showed more concern about the likely treachery, than they showed for trying to cover up what is going on.  The comments, the stories, the pathetic excuses, it is shameful what the Democrats are doing.  One even had the audacity to demand more gun control, what many poeple believe was the main drive behind 'Fast and Furious' in the first place.

We constantly hear about the Left's caring for illegal immigrants more than law and order people do.  We constantly hear about how heartless we are, if we won't buy into rewarding illegal immigrants and thier children.  I come here to point out that hundreds of Mexicans were gunned down by 'Fast and Furious' weapons.  Those weapons were supplied by the Obama administration, through White House, Justice Department, and BATF personell.

Nobody is more strident about demanding illegal immigrants be shown the door than I am.  That being said, I have also demanded that they be treated humanely here.  I do not want to see the women abused.  I do not want to see the children abused.  I don't want to see the men abused.  I want them rounded up, sent back to Mexico, and goods and services cut off for those who remain here.  I do not think of Mexicans as inferior.  They are humans.  They must be treated humanely.  We must have sorrow when their people are gunned down.  We must not act like Democrats.

Guess what.  You and I deserve to be treated humanely too.  We do not deserve to have our money taken to support foreign nationals.  We do not deserve to have our communities around this nation over-run by foreign nationals.  Our children deserve a good education in schools that are modern and clean.  We deserve access to health care facilities that are not under stress because of the goods and services they provide that they don't get paid for.

Our Second Amendment gun rights should not be infringed upon.

What drives me nuts, is that the Mexican people killed by 'Fast and Furious' guns have all but been forgotten in all this.  I have a lot of sympathy for them.

I sure wish the Left in the United States did.  I wish they wanted to find out who was responsible for the hundreds of dead Mexicans.  Sadly, they don't.

They don't even give a damn who provided guns found at the place where Brian Terry lay dead.

Not one Democrat voted for the Contempt charges today.  I'd be surprised if one votes for it in the full House.

Brian Terry's parents, I am sorry.  I want the person who supplied those guns to be held responsible.  I want those who implemented the policy of sending guns to Mexico, and then not tracking them, to be held responsible.  If every Democrat in this nation disagrees with me, I want justice in this case.

I want it for Terry and you.  I want it for the dead Mexican citizens.

I want it, so that our nation will be seen as honest about our mistakes, a nation that tries to right it's own wrongs, a nation that truly does care about it's own citizens and the citizens of other nations.

We are truly a nation of laws.  And that's why people like others and me do their damndest to make sure we enforce them.

Holder specializes in covering up murders associated with Rat Presidents and dirty money. That's why Bambi brought him in. Where did all those low denomination campaign contributions come from? Drug cartels are good at laundering money, especially if it gets them carte blanche along the border.

Just ask Ron Brown who was about to squeal on Bildo Clinton. Oh wait, he's dead.

"He was a true American and I think he deserves the truth and I think everybody should know the truth. And if this was a bad thing they did with Fast and Furious it should be acknowledged so it never happens to anybody else’s son.”

It's offensive and disgusting that Holder and Obama have to put the Terry family through this after all of their suffering.

Haha, well I know they are all indistinguishable commie drones, but one of them has a very specific face of a rat, and that would be Holder, the Black.
