Two years after his death, Brian Terry's family files suit over Fast and Furious operation

Largely lost among the tragic news coming out of Newtown, Conn., today is a development in another gun death which didn’t bring President Obama to tears on television. The family of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was killed in a firefight on the Arizona-Mexico border two years ago today, yesterday filed suit against six managers and investigators for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, along with a federal prosecutor previously assigned to the case and the owner of a gun store.

Several firings related to Fast and Furious were announced just last week, although Attorney General Eric Holder was not among them.

CBS News’s Sharyl Attkisson has been following the story and gives the following recap.

Rep. Darrell Issa remains one of the few voices calling for the Justice Department to release documents related to the case.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi couldn’t quite remember Brian Terry’s name, but these people haven’t forgotten.

    All roads to fast&furious and benghazi lead thru obama and his minions, therefore there will be no accountability where it belongs as usual. But since he got on tv and cried the NRA and conservatives who support the 2nd amendment are to blame for the recent (and past) mass shootings and there will of course be no accountability where it belongs…..with the shooters.
    God bless the victims of these horrendous acts of violence.
    Hold the correct people accountable.

    I’m starting to think justice for Brian Terry will not be satisfied in this life. :-(

      Sadly I agree.

    man that sucks for the shop owners, they were forced to be a part of this.

      They resisted, complained and questioned but were told the ok came from the very top! They will be safe from prosecution or liability.

        I would not call that a safe bet. remember other owners dealing with F&F were shut down too.

    Kudos to the Terry family for doing this. I am so very sad that they lost their beautiful son. Take these criminals in our government to the cleaners, and start at the TOP!
