Memorial to American Federal Agent Killed by Obama/Holder “Operation Fast and Furious” Gun

In memoriam: Agent Brian Terry

Operation “Fast and Furious” was a crude, ill-conceived scheme by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to make it look as though American gun dealers on the border were trafficking weapons to the Mexican drug cartels. The “gunwalking” operation, as I have written many times,went way wrong and has ended up getting two American federal agents killed along with countless Mexican residents.

The blood of all these murders is on the hands of Eric Holder and Barack Obama. Will they ever be indicted for this reckless disregard for safety which was inspired by their anti-gun idealogy and for all subsequent stone-walling, tampering with witnesses, and obstruction of justice?

If this were a Republican administration committing these crimes, they would be forced out of office and facing prison time by now.

For now, let us remember one of the victims, Agent Brian Terry.

From the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform:

“The Brian A. Terry Memorial Act – HR 2668 – will honor the service and sacrifice of fallen Border Patrol Agent Terry, who died protecting Americans and securing the border on December 15, 2010. Semper Fidelis & Honor First.

The Border Patrol station in Bisbee, Ariz., will be renamed to honor the memory of agent Brian Terry who died December 15, 2010 after being shot in the line of duty. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, introduced the bill in the House of Representatives July 27.

“Our nation’s Border Patrol agents have a distinguished history of working to protect our borders. Agent Terry, who served our nation through his military service and his career with the Border Patrol, gave his life defending this country. Naming the Bisbee station in his honor recognizes his sacrifice, service and heroism,” Issa said.

“In the past half-century, 70 U.S. Border Patrol agents — including Agent Terry — have been killed while protecting our nation,” said Pia Carusone, chief of staff for Rep. Giffords (D-Ariz.), whose office worked with Issa on the legislation. “Congresswoman Giffords has led the fight for increased border security so Agent Terry and others will not have died in vain.”

Terry’s family issued a statement, saying, “From the very start, Brian loved his job as a Border Patrol agent and loved his fellow agents. The new Naco Station named in Brian’s honor will serve as a lasting memory for all those who knew Brian.”

In December 2010, Agent Terry was shot and killed while on patrol 14 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border near Rio Rico, Ariz., during an armed confrontation with suspected criminals. Prior to joining the U.S. Border Patrol, Agent Terry served in the U.S. Marine Corps and served as a police officer in Michigan.

Agent Terry’s murder is linked to Operation Fast and Furious, a reckless program where federal law enforcement agencies knowingly allowed the trafficking of illegally purchased weapons into Mexico, arming drug cartels. The Oversight and Government Reform Committee is conducting an ongoing investigation to determine which U.S. officials are responsible for creating and authorizing the deadly program.

The bill, H.R. 2668, the “Brian A. Terry Memorial Act,” has 52 Democratic and Republican cosponsors including principal cosponsor Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Ranking Member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The station, located at 2136 S. Naco Highway, is located in the district of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and is only the second border patrol station to be named for a fallen agent. The Border Patrol’s Murrieta, Calif., station is named in honor of Agents Theodore L. Newton, Jr. and George F. Azrak, two agents killed on duty in 1967, by an earlier act authored by Rep. Issa.”

Warner Todd Huston commentary:

“This Gunwalker/Operation Fast and Furious scandal should be enough to at least get U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder fired if not having some members of Obama’s FBI, BATF and other agencies sent to jail. Obama is complicit with the murder of one border agent, untold numbers of Mexican citizens, and likely more Americans in the future because these guns are showing up at crime scenes in the U.S.A.”
