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..

Which consequently leads us to wonder whether Jaime Zapata and Brian Terry were intended to serve as sacrificial lambs to further enhance the narrative - that not only civilians but also US agents' lives are put at risk under current US gun sale regulations.
Report: Brian Terry Murder Suspect An FBI Informant
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?
Therefore, is this weeks EP an attempt to hide the documentation proving the above. Will the "discovery" triggered by Zapata family "wrongful death" law suit be able to get past the EP?
a criminal case is much more likely to defeat EP than a civil case...
Zapata was murdered in Mexico. No criminal case there. Terry killed in AZ...any chance of criminal charges there.
FIVE just held up one of the papers released by Holder...Everything redacted on page but a part of a sentence.
Someone mentioned recently that an emergency order re; EP from the SCOTUS could open the records.
um so fast and furious also had nothing to do with killing 300 innocent Mexicans in Mexico and untold others in the US?
I so sorry you can’t correlate the illegal actions by our govt agents with the results.
I feel assured if I sold a gun to someone who I knew to be a bad hombre with bad intentions, and they went out and killed a Democrat Judge or Congressman that I would be in jail for the rest of my life or worse, and I’m just a civilian. Law Enforcers of the gun laws not only knew better and had no excuse they planned to get the guns into the hands of narco-terrorists and knew they would be recovered at murder crime scenes-accomlices, CONSPIRATORS etc to premediated murder and an attempt to violate all Americans 2nd amendment right and illegally run/walk guns to Mexico (and who know where else?) There was no valid law enforcement mission, it was nothing but a gun grab set up..
That how they intended to TRACE/TRACK the weapons, finding them at the scene of the murder.
I wouldn’t put anything past this evil administration.
Was Obama black mailed or convinced to make deal, with a directive to legalize and halting deportation of nearly 1 million Mexicans?
Then within days he uses executive privilege to bury documents again involving Mexico, in regards Fast and Furious Murdergate.
This seems rather odd.
Giving the bad guys guns can never have a good ending. Especially when the REALLY bad guys (holder, zer0, etc.) are involved.
I thought about it. It isn't at all clear to me why murderers should be expected to honor financing agreements; nor why they would care about advancing the cause of gun control in the US.
Why do murderers want to bolster that narrative? Or any narrative.
Well, the firearms were free, after all.....paid by your stimulus funds. So, that is one incentive.
The second incentive could be that, if caught, you would be considered a Criminal Informant, and unable to be prosecuted for the crime......that's a helluva incentive!
If there was an FBI informant on a rip team, then the FBI had at least an inkling of where the rip team would be, and may have developed the tip that led to the rip team being there.
Coordination with the Border Patrol could have prevented the clash that led to Brian Terry's death.
That the rip team had F&F weapons indicates some sort of connection, possible to bolster the 'credibility' of the informant (which the whole operation may have been).
Informants aren't agents, they are often smarmy turncoats who are glorified because of the people they sell out, and they'd sell out their grandmother if they thought there was something in it for them. Without cred, they're dead.
Lay this at the doorstep of your choice: The war on drugs, the (still) absence of border security due in part to "immigration policy", or the BATF for providing the weapons, or all three. Bureaucratic incompetence bordering on criminal negligence can be claimed in the lack of operational coordination at the very least.
While the cartels may have no shortage of weapons, feeding them more didn't help the situation, and the ones used came from F&F.
Why wouldn't murderers prefer unarmed victims? Even victims limited to less tactically capable firearms gives the bad guys a technological (firepower) advantage, something our military has consistently relied upon to help win wars for the last century. Superior firepower for those who don't pay any attention to laws is the inevitable result of more gun control, especially an 'assault weapons ban' which has been high on the Liberal wish list.
They try to cover this up, while jumping up and down to get the NY Slimes attention on all the cool stuff they know happening internationally! This admin’s priorities are completely bass-ackwards, and will be until well after they have been brought up on charges.
Pin it on Bulger, because they can’t blame Bush. W has an air-tight alibi
I have always wondered WHY the guns were left at the scene....no one leaves the murder weapon, but that makes PERFECT SENSE!!!
The FEDS have recently been supporting the Sinola cartel with the most undercover agents and guns, and have already opened up ARIZONA to them to use as an illegal trafficking corridor.
The deal is which ever gang wins, controls drug traffic/illegal immigrant traffic/general mayhem/rape of young girls , and gets Arizona, all under the approval and monitoring (payoffs) of the US and MEXICAN government.
Obama and Calderon know they cannot control the 'cartels', so they decided to give them all guns and staff them with undercover agents and let them go to war with each other. Then... winner takes all, including Arizona.
It's already a done deal. Terry et al got caught in the crossfire during a struggle between the two gangs.
The Sinola cartel is coming out on top, and they will run the border along Arizona. In the mean time, since traffic will decrease to almost zero along the Texas Border, Obama and Calderon will declare SUCCESS in 'closing' the border.
Why do you think the FEDS went after AZ with Holder, and were telling AZ they cannot control their own border? Why just today the Supreme Court had a RULING, and it ain't going well for ARIZONA.
