Terry was murdered in 2010 by an illegal alien with a weapon used in the epically botched Operation Fast and Furious. He died in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and members of a six-man cartel “rip crew,” which patrolled the desert along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob. The cartel member suspected of k*****g Terry was apprehended in 2017.
Terry’s family, specifically his brother Kent Terry want the scandal to be investigated and those responsible to be held accountable for their actions.
Yet, Obama consistently states his administration was “scandal-free”. When reminded of scandals such as Fast and Furious that took place on his watch, Obama referred to them as “phony scandals”.
American Thinker had this to say of so-called “phony scandals” stating – “Phony scandals are those that do not have a smidgeon of evidence of a crime, like alleged Trump collusion with the Russians or obstruction of an investigation that was never stopped or even slowed down. Phony scandals do not produce body bags as the Obama administration produced in Benghazi and during Operation Fast and Furious — the Obama administration’s g*n-running operation in which it armed Mexican drug lords and cartels with heavy weapons for which the U.S. Border Patrol had no match or protection. That g*n-running operation led to the m****r of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.”
