Ya think?? Sounds like another “I told you so”. And once again, the Old Media completely dropped the ball. No wonder they’re rapidly fading into irrelevance and obscurity.
What am I missing here? Haven’t we known this for some time?
well according to liberals, this happened a long time ago,we need to move on.
One of many phony non-phony scandals where no one in the cabinet lost their job in the senseless death of Americans.
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive) 12-02-2011
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.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault.
Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
The federal government will still not reveal if one of the two WASR-10 AK-pattern semi-automatic rifles located near the scene provided to the Sinaloa cartel via Operation Fast and Furious was the weapon that put a bullet through Brian Terrys heart. The existence of a third recovered gun, an SKS carbine, has been disputed by the FBI despite the fact it had been talked about openly in the beginning of the investigation among federal agents.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
See post #7. We’ve known about this for three years.
The democrats, with help from the media, are pros at stalling until it becomes old news. They did it first with Monica and Bill.
What about the third gun?
And other agents say they returned fire with non-lethal beanbag rounds.....
