Posted on 06/22/2012 11:21:13 AM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
A new exclusive report from PJ Media reports that the suspect in the death of Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry, may be an FBI informant.
Brian Terry was killed as a direct result of the Obama/Holder botched Operation Fast and Furious.
PJ Media reported:
In the growing Fast and Furious scandal, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys death in Peck Canyon, Arizona was previously described as a chance meeting that led to a firefight: an illegal alien rip crew working for the Sinaloa cartel was hoping to find other illegal aliens and to rob them at gunpoint. Instead, they stumbled across a Border Patrol unit and murdered Agent Terry.
Last week, the Washington Times offered a new version of the encounter: they reported that the rip crew was not hunting illegals, but Border Patrol teams with the intention of engaging them in combat.
Sources now tell PJ Media that neither version of events is accurate: the rip crew was not waiting for a chance encounter with other illegals, nor did the members intend to engage American law enforcement agents.
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
Sources claim the Department of Justice has been trying for almost a year to hide the key information how the rip crew knew the shipment was coming through that night.
Criminal informants (CIs) are a common tool of law enforcement agencies. When agencies apprehend criminals, agencies often reduce or drop charges in exchange for information leading to the arrests of higher-ranking criminals. Earlier this year, reports claimed that Operation Fast and Furious weapons smuggled over the border were actually chosen by an FBI informant, and..

Could it be that the 'executive privilege' recently invoked by Obama is to conceal the fact that Criminal Informants (CI's), or individuals contracted to work for our government were indeed the ones responsible for Agent Terry's death?
Initially, two weapons at the scene were identified as F&F weapons.. Now it's three weapons. Why did our government wait so long to disclose that this third weapon was an F&F weapon? Perhaps because it was the FBI informant's weapon and that's literally the smoking gun that's being covered-up here?
Are they going to try and pin this on Whitey Bulger?
Why was Iran Contra a big deal in the media and with the Dims when this isn’t? (rhetorical question)
Think about this:
Unless the firearm is left at the scene, there is no way to trace a murder to one of the straw-purchased weapons.
To date, I believe the ATF has not revealed how many of the thousands of Fast & Furious firearms have been traced to crime scenes.
If the intent was to gin-up the number of traced weapons left at Mexican crime scenes, there would have to be an agreement that the US Gov’t would provide the financing in exchange for the firearm to be dropped at a crime scene.
U.S. Mexico Border Security Policy(2009 News Conference Fast and Furious)
See Robert Gibbs, David Ogden, Janet Napolitano, and Jim Steinberg explain their policy in their own words.
At another news conference that day, the efforts to assist Mexico part starts at about 25 minutes;
Presidential News Conference

He then answered questions on a number of topics including the economy, efforts to assist Mexico in combatting drug cartels, international monetary policy, tax policy, stem cell research, and the Middle East peace process.
Another piece of the puzzle...
May be why, on Hannity, Terry’s dad said the cover-up is bigger than we think, and that his son “wasn’t supposed to be there that night”. Any chance Terry was assassinated because he knew too much about Holder’s, and perhaps Obama’s, involvement in the operation?
Yikes! Those commas setting off the appositive makes it sound as if Brian Terry is the suspect.
Did this FBI Informant also play a round of Golf with Obama?
Will they find yet another head and decapitated corpse at the border? I don’t think the cartels would be very pleased about this. WTH?
Probably try to frame George Zimmerman for the murder...as it seems Obama/Sharpton/Gov Scott case against GZ is pretty much over
Here’s a thought: Maybe the admin set up the border patrol so they could have a sympathic victim to use against the 2nd Amendment. As in the shooters weren’t part of a crew looking to hit other drug dealers, they way was cleared and they were sent there specifically to kill the BP agents...
Interesting! The article makes more sense today with what we know, then it did when written.
Is this also what happened to Jamie Zapata? Were “Criminal Informants “ involved in his death for a similar reason?
Since the Zapata family has filed Wrongful Death suit, can EP deny materials in the discovery segment of tht case? Zapata was murderd in Mexico near Texas. Terry was actually IN AZ. Can the Terry family also file charges? Should they?
I would not put anything past the ATF and Holder. What a murderous combination. The ATF has to go.
Great point. Leaving the murder weapon at the scene seems to be an ongoing phenomenon with Fast & Furious weapons. They are INTENTIONALLY LEFT THERE to bolster the ‘weapons from America’ narrative. You are right and that MUST BE the reason for it.
..and the infamous ‘third gun’ was a whoopsie because although left there intentionally, it implicates someone who was working FOR our gov’t.
Fast and Furious was stupid and people should be held accountable. However, as a staunch 2nd Amendment Supporter I can’t stomach the overblown and false statements list this one from the article -
“Brian Terry was killed as a direct result of the Obama/Holder botched Operation Fast and Furious.”
This would never have been true for 2nd Amendment folks before, so why is it now? Guns don’t kill people. People kill people using whatever is available. I dare anyone to suggest that Brian Terry would not have been killed if it had not been for Fast and Furious. The cartels have lots of guns and from what I understand there were about 2000 guns total that were walked. I bet the cartels have many many times that number of firearms.
Fast and Furious was stupid to the nth degree, but everyone who overplays the stupidity voids their logical reasoning to refute statements by Sharpton et al such as “if Ruger did not make firearms that murder would not have happened.”
A gun is a tool. It is a regulated commodity, but it is an inanimate object that requires the actions of a person to function. We need to hold those responsible for this stupid operation accountable to the fullest extent, but we also need to stop making statements that would have been crucified on this board, in the NRA boardroom, and around the dinner table 2 years ago as illogical and absurd.
Blaming a flawed operation for firearms being in Mexico is logically no different than blaming the manufacturer or retailer of the firearm. The illegal criminal turd shot Brian Terry by pulling the trigger on a firearm. There is nothing special about the firearm or the ammunition... it’s one of millions that exists in the world today.
Continued prayers for Brian’s family and those who serve us in the Border Patrol. I want them to get the answers. I want to know the truth as much as anyone else, but suggesting Fast and Furious killed Brian Terry is no different than Bloomberg blaming a murder on lax firearms laws in North Carolina.
Are they going to try and pin this on Whitey Bulger?
Are you seriously this stupid?
Providing firearms to criminals is something no Second Amendment supporter would condone.
Obama and Holder provided firearms to the most viscious criminals in North America!
Please, you cannot be this stupid.
I agree with your analysis of the misguided public’s perception and the false narrative about ‘guns kill’. However, the real story is the underlying possibility that Terry’s death might have been in inside job to cover up his awareness of the intent of F&F which was to get assault weapons banned in the United States.
