In a new development in the Fast and Furious gunwalking case, the Justice Department's Inspector General (IG) is making inquiries into the possible existence of a missing third weapon in the 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, CBS News has learned. According to sources close to the investigation, the IG is questioning the Border Patrols evidence collection team this week in Tucson, Ariz.
The Justice Department, which oversees ATF and the FBI - and which is investigating Terrys murder - has steadfastly denied the existence of a third gun. Court records have previously only mentioned two weapons: Romanian WASR AK-47 type rifles found at Terrys southern Arizona murder scene on Dec. 14, 2010. Both weapons were sold to suspects who were under ATF's watch in the agencys controversial gunwalking case. Also, a ballistics report only mentions the two WASR rifles and states that it's inconclusive as to whether either of them fired the bullet that killed Terry.
But references to a missing third weapon, a Soviet-made SKS rifle of the same caliber as the WASRs, have persisted since the crime. CBS News previously obtained and reported on secretly recorded conversations referencing such a gun. The tapes were recorded approximately mid-March 2011 by the primary gun dealer cooperating with ATF in Fast and Furious: Andre Howard, owner of Lone Wolf Trading Company in Glendale, Ariz.

Stay on it, Sharyl !
I’ve got to hand it to Sharyl Attkisson, she doesn’t give up. I hope she gets to the bottom of this—I think she will before any of those donuttins in congress do.
What’s “Fast and Furious” about again? Its been so long since there has been anything heard about that scandal, I almost forgot. Odumbo and Holder are skating and nothing thus far has been done to bring them to justice. They certainly changed America fundamentally didn’t they?
Treason, and it's state-sponsored terrorism (arming the drug-cartels and providing them with legal protections).
BATFE providing weapons to criminals so that they would kill American and Mexican citizens. This was done in an attempt to enact clamp down on Gunshops and Gunshows by saying the weapons came from the U.S. which they did by way of the Federal Government.
