Today, Dec. 14, is the third anniversary of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s death. Just last month we learned that Terry’s family would appeal a ruling that they could not sue the federal government in connection with Terry’s death and the administration’s Fast and Furious gun walking operation. Terry and his family have not been forgotten, though, as many on Twitter took a moment to remember.

    Many lefties will try to argue that F&F was a continuation of a Bush DoJ operation so allow me to preempt their BS.
    Fast & Furious and Wide Receiver are not the same programs and were certainly not run the same. Wide Receiver was done with the cooperation of the Mexican Federales, but was dropped when Mexican police failed to interdict gun traffickers after they crossed into Mexico. Fast & Furious was done without even informing the Mexican authorities. Last point, no border agents were killed due to Wide Receiver.

    .
    Justice for Brian Terry! Justice for Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods!

      And Border Agent Jamie Zapata.

      • James W.

        Zapata was killed by guns smuggled out of Texas though and were not part of fast and furious. two brothers and a neighbor were arrested in this one. but on this one, supposedly the FBI had an agent working with them all the way til the guns got to laredo and crossed over.

        Dead is dead. He died in the line of duty as a result of bad border
        policy and gunrunning incompetence. IMHO, he should be remembered as a
        literal causality of this Administration too.

    • Howard Roark

      To add: Wide Receiver was intended to arrest people the moment they attempted to cross the border; F & F was intended to allow those weapons to disburse far and wide within Mexico.

  • JeffWRidge

    Nothing is going to be done about this until we have a new President and AG. Unfortunately, I’m not sure anything will be done about it even if a right-wing President is elected and he/she appoints a right-wing AG. Presidents have a history of protecting their predecessors by not going after them for their malfeasance in office and as we’ve seen, Congressional types tend to lack the guts to do anything either.

  • ICOYAR

    I wish Obama and Holder would be imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay soon.

    People of the United States of America,
    Speaking from experience as a Vietnam Veteran,when you’re in Government Service ie Military,Law Enforcement you’re Expendable and Replaceable,There’s little or no accountability,if something goes really wrong during a mission because of poor planning, Political Hacks in charge always use the excuse “It was unforeseen” and swept under the preverbal rug💀

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Agent Terry, I pray for justice for you and your family.

  • lainer51

    How sad, yet predictable. Sandra Fluke gets a phone call from WH because her feelings were “hurt”; Brian Terry’s parents still waiting for ANYONE to acknowledge their son and his death….. How embarrassing we have become..

  • Bathing Suit Area

    Remember, when someone shoots a bunch of kids at school, the gun has nothing to do with it, there’s no way the government could have prevented the shooter from getting a weapon and anyone who suggests any policy to try is to be ashamed for ghoulishly politicizing tragic deaths.

    When a border patrol agent gets killed by the Mexican mafia, it’s 100% the fault of a failed sting operation, because without that, Mexican gangs would never have been able to get any weapons or kill anyone. We need to politicize this as much as possible!

    • Guest

      That’s some great circular logic you’ve got going there. Don’t you get dizzy?

      • Bathing Suit Area

        I’ve no idea what definition of “circular logic” you’re using but I don’t think it’s even remotely close to what it actually means.

        • Guest

          Be as obtuse as you like, but would the gun have killed those poor children and educators on its own?
          .
          Would that gun have been there to kill Agent Terry if not for a failed sting operation?
          .
          But hey, that’s not circular logic, is it?

          • Bathing Suit Area

            No, it really isn’t.

          • Markward

            You would know? You have yet to have an original, let alone logical thought inside that empty space you call a head. And yes, I will continue to insult you, because that is all you are worth.

            Now go along and stupid up the thread some more. I am bored and love mocking you.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Aww, markward doesn’t know what circular logic is either, he just knows that he really doesn’t want me to be right about things. Sorry.

          • Markward

            Its funny trying to watch BSA think he is clever when he is being an obtuse prick with dreams that one day, he might have a thought, that won’t look at him and decide to hang itself in the horror that is looking at the embodiment of idiocy that is yourself .

            In the meantime, logical thought will continue to visit him when it needs to die of loneliness.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            All this bluster isn’t necessary. You can surely just look up what circular logic is, it won’t even cost you anything. And you might even learn something!

          • trixiewoobeans

            It’s circular, but it ain’t logic, lol!

    • Noah

      so, what you are saying is that Brian Terry’s death was unavoidable because it was inevitable that mexican gangs would get their hands on guns anyways?!

      you are Fuuuuucccckkkked in the brain.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        Isn’t that the argument around here about school shootings? That killers won’t be stopped by any gun laws? Why then would Mexican gangs be stopped by the non-existence of one sting operation?

        • Noah

          comparing apples to elvis today?!

        • Howard Roark

          False – gun stores do not sell firearms to criminals and the insane. to the contrary, F&F was specifically designed to sell firearms to criminals.

    • ObamaFail

      The guns used to kill Terry were given to the cartels because of Obama and Holder running guns into Mexico. Try to defend them all you want, but they are getting people killed because they are so eager to arm drug lords.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        So before Obama and Holder, Mexican drug lords couldn’t get hold of any guns and never killed anyone?

        • Markward

          And never before Obama and Holder did the government actually let the guns used in sting operations to be used by the cartels.

          But carry on dumbass. Lets see the depths of stupid you can plummet.

        • Howard Roark

          false argument – F&F weapons were sold to the cartels BY THE F#CKING US GOVERNMENT, you crayon eating tard.

          do the world a favor and become another gun crime statistic, because the only good you’ll ever do this world is as fertilizer.

    • Markward

      You’re right, because people aren’t blaming the gun, rather the one who provided access to said inanimate object. Oh, wait! That makes you wrong, and yet another fucktarded brit like your friend Piers Morgan!

      And look who is up voting, its spiffymcdumbass!

      • Bathing Suit Area

        You could provide access to all the weapons in the world, and they wouldn’t kill anyone until someone pulls the trigger, remember! Why aren’t you blaming the killer themselves instead of trying to spread the responsibility around?

        • Markward

          So NOW it suddenly becomes the responsibility of the wielder. How funny, before it was suddenly the gun just getting up and killing people.

          Oh and again, nice try at equivalence when giving guns to the cartels is not the same is restricting law abiding citizens to their rights. You fuckarded moron!

          Oh and BTW bitch:

          And never before Obama and Holder did the government actually let the guns used in sting operations to be used by the cartels.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            So you’re saying that now it’s suddenly not the responsibility of the wielder?

        • Howard Roark

          Maybe you’re right – maybe it’s time to start stripping 2nd Amendment rights from registered Democrats, since they have a nasty little habit of shooting up schools.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        And I have no idea how you think anything makes me a brit.

        • Markward

          Going by what I seen from previous comments. Since I seem to be incorrect, I am sorry to all of the UK for putting you in with them.

    • Howard Roark

      Criminals and lunatics are prevented by law from purchasing firearms; POTUS and the AG purposefully sold firearms to criminals.

      Were you born retarded, or did your mother drop you as a baby?

  • ObamaFail

    Obama and Holder are responsible for this man’s death. They armed the trash that killed him. If Terry were black and the shooter were white, maybe then the libs would care to get to the bottom of this, but since the shooter was an illegal drug runner, and the victim a white guy, the libs celebrate his death and praise Lord Obama.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    If the Administration thought that time would make people forget about Terry and Zapata, they are sadly mistaken.

  • copperpeony

    Holder and obama need to be behind bars. Period. Murder is murder, especially when a president of this country and his DOJ tool supplies weapons to the enemy and the enemy kills our own good people.

  • FrancisMcManus

    Brian Terry was an atheist but I’m happy to report the pope says he’ll be saved anyway.

    • https://twitter.com/UnicornOfMayhem Hi This Is My Username

      So what? He didn’t deserve what happened to him, nor did his family.

    • Howard Roark

      I’m happy to report that the pope says, “when Fracis McManus dies, nobody will give two f#cks”

  • https://twitter.com/UnicornOfMayhem Hi This Is My Username

    I don’t know how his family hangs in there. They need answers, because those answers will bring them closure. Closure is very important after losing a loved one. It pains me that they are not getting the answers they want and need, as well as getting the closure they deserve.

    Fast and Furious, from what all I have read on it, was quite sloppy and shouldn’t have been done to begin with. But this administration loves screwing things up and any lives lost in the process, no big deal. No one is important to them except for their own crooked scumbag kind.

  • Tam

    Brian Terry and his tragic murder at the hands of an inept and criminal government never fail to make me cry…

  • Ed McDowell

    Eric and his DOJ are working diligently and efficiently day and night to get to the bottom of this little bump in the road. Its begun to pay off – they fired the janitor ,,,er,,,I mean they reassigned him.

  • Lindakl

    This story breaks my heart, I pray they don’t get away with it.
