Univision reporter: Did Fast and Furious guns kill Border Patrol agent today?

  • Kimberlee Lockhart

    This is horrible.

  • Mini14’sBlkStrat

    Is this what hussein obama really wants? I bet Governor Brewer takes quick, appropriate action. Could it be a fast & furious weapon?

  • Bill

    Sorry, misread the Fox report – the guns mentioned in their current report relate back to the guns found in the Brian Terry murder – NOT this one.

  • Paul C.

    All the Owebama policies are crumbing around us. This is all a product of WH lies. Napolitano an Obama appointee said everything on the border is secure. How will the MSM spin this. Will they ever print it? These morons in the WH got to go.

  • John Urban

    Kimberly Dvorak is reporting: “Suspected drug smugglers have shot two agents and authorities in the region are not commenting on the condition of the second injured agent who was airlifted to the hospital.”

    Our local AZ stations are all over this. Nothing yet from MSM

  • EastValleyConservative

    It doesn’t at this point matter if it was FNF or something else. Obama has stripped our border agents of the ability to do a damn thing. Makes me wonder what I was thinking when I moved to AZ.

    • weRbroke

      There are how many acres of uninhabited land in AZ? I wonder how many illegals never make it? Who is going to come looking for a drugmule that disappears?

  • Jeffrey Harbin

    If I’m Jan Brewer I’m telling my own AG to get ready to indict Holder and the rest of the clown car that was involved in F&F on a state level conspiracy to commit murder charge, and any state level RICO statutes they might have available to them.

    ATTY GEN HOLDER IS DUE AN APOLOGY. it turns out the border patrol agent was killed according to FBI reports due to friendly fire. no fast and furious weapons involved. LIARS.
