Attorney General Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” program that supplied firearms to Mexican drug gangs in an alleged ill-conceived entrapment attempt remains one of the biggest government scandals in recent history to go unpunished. Because “Fast and Furious” was the flawed idea of the first Black Attorney General, Eric Holder, working for the first Black president, there have been few calls for a criminal prosecution despite the fact that at least one US border patrol agent, Brian Terry was killed as well as dozens of Mexican nationals.
About the only “justice” the surviving relatives of Brian Terry are likely to see is a statue of Terry that has been erected in Bisbee, Arizona.
A Fox News article reports “A statue honoring murdered United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was unveiled Saturday at the now re-named Brian Terry Patrol Station in Bisbee, Arizona.”
“‘That iconic image of Brian carrying his BordTac team member on his shoulders represents everything good about Brian, his strength, his determination, his attention to detail, his love for the Border Patrol and his love for his fellow agents,’ Terry’s cousin, Robert Heyer, said.”
“Terry’s family established the Brian Terry Foundation to honor his memory and create a legacy in his name. The foundation provides emotional and financial assistance for U.S. Border Patrol agents and their families.”
“Terry was killed in a 2010 gun fight between border patrol agents and members of a gang attempting to steal marijuana from smugglers. Authorities later determined that the gang’s weapons were part of the Justice Department’s botched ‘gun-walking’ program Operation Fast and Furious…”
The cowardly House Speaker John Boehner is unlikely to call for the forced removal of either Obama or Holder. About the only justice in this matter is that after the corrupt two-party system has been removed from power and a pro-White government is created, the statue of Brian Terry will still be standing long after all the statues built for Barack Obama have been torn down.
