DOJ releases indictment charging 5 with Brian Terry’s death

This really took almost 2 years for them to charge these people with Brian Terry’s death? Almost 2 years??? While I absolutely want these people to meet justice, this also smells like a campaign move to take some of the heat off Holder and Fast and Furious:

FOX NEWS – For the first time, federal officials revealed Monday that murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and an elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags — not bullets — at a heavily armed drug cartel crew in the mountains south of Tucson in December 2011.

The announcement came as the Department of Justice unsealed an indictment charging five individuals allegedly involved in Terry’s death. A sixth suspect has also been charged in a related incident.

The U.S. is also offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of four outstanding suspects believed to hiding out in Mexico. The names of the four suspects were revealed, and their pictures released, to the public. Police in the US and in Mexico are cooperating and under intense pressure to find them.

Two men are currently in custody and charged in the incident. The FBI says it has been actively searching for the outstanding fugitives.

  • No doubt, I agree Scoop- it’s purely political and a cheap shot. If justice was still important in this case, they’d be investigating from the top down.

  • FutureOnePercent

    What about the DOJ officials who should be held for being an accomplice to murder?

    • kong1967

      Including Holder and Obama. I don’t believe for one second they weren’t behind this whole thing from the very beginning. Create a crisis for gun control.

      • Without a doubt. Agree

      • FutureOnePercent

        Holder was part of my “DOJ officials” umbrella, but you’re right, Barry should be in cuffs as well.

        • kong1967

          I hear ya, but if they punish anyone in order to appease Congress Holder will be excluded. Grrrrrrrr, that makes me so freaking mad.

  • This reeks to me of ass-covering at a magnitude never before seen.

    I actually feel bad that I think this way about our entire government, but what choice do I have?

    They have forced it upon me with constant Lies, obfuscations, finger-pointing and stonewalling. I still cannot believe that all media, not just “liberal media”, are ignoring this INTER-national scandal involving hundreds of dead foreigners and our own government lying about it in public.

    • kong1967

      So…what conservative media is ignoring this? Fox covers it extensively.

      • Is it a daily update? I’m actually asking, not trying to be sarcastic. I don’t have cable TV anymore, heh.

        I’m guilty of assuming that there are not very many in-depth and hard-hitting investigative series being done with major networks fighting for scoops. Only because I probably would have seen some video here or elsewhere.

        • kong1967

          Well, it’s not a daily update because sometimes there’s nothing new with it. They have had a lot of coverage of it, though, and it hasn’t been good coverage for Obama. It’s covered on the pundits’ shows all the time (Hannity, etc.).

      • NYGino

        Well NBC is not ignoring this. Why in two years they actually devoted a whole five minutes to this story. Can’y ask for more saturation of a news story than that. Can you?

        • kong1967

          Nope, but he said the conservative media was ignoring it, too. I didn’t know NBC was conservative.

  • p m

    “The FBI says it has been actively searching for the outstanding fugitives.”

    A two year old cold trail. (Unless we’re supposed to believe that the FBI was ‘actively’ on it right away, even though the DoJ was burying it.)

    • FutureOnePercent

      Well, we’ve seen how good they are at “tracking” things LOL.

      Yeah, I’m not holding my breath.

  • kong1967

    I think this is bogus. Obama and Holder were taken to the edge and they are trying to stop the bleeding. I don’t think they had any plans to charge these men with anything until their backs were against the wall and they’re looking to displace the focus. Gotta make Holder and Obama look competent, like they are enforcing the law, and like they had nothing to do with this. We all know that’s a lie.

    I want these people brought to justice, but this is nothing but a political diversion for Obama.

    • Patriot077

      Check out the link I posted a few minutes ago. The authorities had these guys in custody for some time until they released them!!! Absolutely unbelievable!

  • until holder , napolitano are also. This is not over yet.

  • NYGino

    The whole idea of finally indicting anyone for Brian Terry’s murder and using this as proof that the Obama administration cares is laughable. If these people were know to them before why wasn’t this done before? Besides, the real atrocity is the Fast and Furious operation in itself and the denial of knowledge of it by the DOJ.

    If anything this delayed aggression towards bringing the actual triggers pullers into custody only underlines the incompetence and conspiratorial position taken by the DOJ and Obama himself.

  • Boris_Badenoff

    Get use to this . They have nothing to run on so they are just making up crap to throw at the voters in hope they can distract from the fact that Holder & company are guilty as sin and play it out until after November..
    Same sex marriage, Amnesty for illegals, giveaways for students, … any other special interest groups want to get in line while the store is open for business, because after the election the freebies will be gone, then it will be welcome to Uncle Obama and the Tax police ..
    knock , knock , knock… I’m from the IRS and I am here to collect your overdue bill…..
    spread um…

  • wodiej

    this does not abdicate holder and obama from responsibility.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    This administration nothing but corrupt. We seen video ( david Ogden) saying, DOJ ,WH knew about this, And Naplitano also. Sick that congress on both sides seem to think 200 plus people dead is normal, we should just forget about it , moving on. These people need to be brought to Justice.


    Yes RS, it does smell and I can smell the stench here in fly over country……and here, I thought it was the cows.

  • RS nailed that!

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    “Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious.” – The Terry Family

  • 911Infidel

    Ah, yes the underlings get the shaft while the real criminals go free. That would be you Eric Holder and your Messiah.

  • I agree it’s a purely political move.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Campaign ploy – nothing more or less.

    Holder must be fired and jailed would be nice too. Obama must be fired.

  • toongoon

    Wow, Holder is held in contempt of congress and he finally starts looking for the killers of Brian Terry.

    What if they filed impeachment papers? Would he convict the NPB criminals?

    There could be something to this.

  • tvlgds

    Eric Holder should be one of the ones indicted!

  • 3seven77

    It’s always either their political agenda or CYA for Obama and Holder. They don’t do anything without an ulterior motive.

  • WordsFailMe

    Obamanews for Obamanoids.

    A fact, a simple fact, that may have brought comfort to a family months ago, withheld by the foul, power-crazed communists and their Muslim-loving toadies in the FBI.

    Obama and the Obamanites must go.

  • Shooting bean bags on the Border…I just want to cry.

  • Joe

    This is simply a distraction to say the DOJ did something!

    What phony B *STARDS they are

    THEY think this will close the chapter –

    The Terry family has again been short changed

    The parents seem like such sweet people

    I wish they had a relative with a “PIT BULL” personality to shake the tree

    AND then call a press conference and SHAME the DOJ

  • I want to hear from the accused! if these are the muderers let’s hear it from them. We know how law, truth and obfuscation works with Obama and Holder. To them, No, means Yes , and Yes, means No!, We should want to hear the truth from those who are blamed along with the evidence. Any Less is a travesty of justice that is Obama and Holder.

    Trust but Verify! Verify!.Verify! we’re dealing with Democrats.

  • Brian Burnes

    Nothing will happen…just like nothing will happen to Obama. Who’s gonna hold them accountable? They do what they want to, Obama bypasses laws regularly.
    We don’t have anyone strong enough to attack this administration!
    Unfortunately we are at a time when we have to vote for the lesser of two evils and there is nobody to really get behind! Romney? I wish he’d grow a pair and attack all the way to November, but he won’t?
    Sad times!!!

  • chatterbox365

    Well, well, well…

    As mentioned in other comments, this is definitely political, but too little, too late for the Terry family. They deserve to know what happened. Don’t be surprised if these scum bags are mysterious rounded up in the near future. Yeah, we want the killers brought to justice, but we want those responsible for this mess to be held accountable as well.

  • Still doesn’t tell me who came up with Fast and Furious, who sanctioned it, who approved it, and whether or not the president knew about it. To date, I don’t think anybody has ever been fired over this, let alone been brought up on charges for perjury or obstruction of justice. We need to know what happened and when. It’s the only way of stopping this insanity from ever happening again.

  • PVG

    I find this hard to believe. Four people sacrificed to save Holder and BO……

  • Patriot077

    I just saw this on townhall. Those scumbags had the murderers until they released them. Check out this local news article:

    • kong1967

      That article was written just over a year ago. That is proof positive that Holder never had any intentions of charging them with anything. Now they are suddenly charging five of them when they released them a year ago? Definitely just trying to change the topic and make it look like they want to do something about Terry’s murder.

      Do you have an extra barf bag? I seem to have run out.

      Let me know if I’m missing something here. Like the timeline or something.

      • Patriot077

        Nope, you aren’t missing a thing Kong. And did you notice what they thought about charging them with before? Just illegal entry. Punishment: deportment
        I guess they just took them to the border and let ’em go.

        I also recalled reading, at the time, about them being armed with bean bag “ammo” but everyone seems to be treating it as new news today. So I found this old clip which is disgusting – Brian Terry’s brother is being interviewed 3 months after his brother was murdered.

        • kong1967

          Ok, now I’m royally pissed off! Now they tell our agents to run from illegals. If a farmer holds illegals at gun point when they trespass it’s the farmer who gets arrested. They have signs telling Americans not to enter beyond, even though it’s American soil. ICE won’t return Arizona’s phone calls. When a border patrol agent shot (in the ass) an illegal smuggling a van full of drugs into the U.S., the agent was arrested.

          I can’t take any more of this bullcrap. Government has never taken the border very seriously, not even Bush. But Obama is at war against the border agents!!

          Romney better be dead serious about closing the border. We need legal immigration via work visas or green cards, but I want them to start using our drones to bomb these bastards as soon as they step on our soil. Do that a few times and it might plug the leak because they’ll be too freaking afraid to trespass on our property.

          Obama, you’re a traitor and you should be immediately impeached for treason!

  • hongryhawg

    Holder’s feeling the heat. That’s saying something, considering how untouchable he’s always been. Holder-Justice. Now there’s an oxymoron for you.

  • 1vote

    “ elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags — not bullets — at a heavily armed drug cartel …” “BEAN BAGS” – WTF ???

    Boy, do we need some change !!

    “elite squad” and “bean bags” sounds almost oxymoronic

  • wishladya

    Bean bags! Our agents fire bean bags at terrorists! Who’s idea was this?! How idiotic!
