Brian-Terry-Carrying-BORTAC-AgentI was privileged to have both served with Brian Terry while we were stationed as young Marines in Italy and to have called him a friend.  In 2010, while serving on the BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit), Brian was killed by two Mexican nationals who had entered the US Illegally.  Brian was killed by weapons that were illegally sent to Mexico by the ATF in Operation Fast and Furious.  According to the Los Angeles times: “The jury found Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza and Ivan Soto-Barraza guilty of all counts. Jurors had begun deliberations Wednesday afternoon, a week after the trial began in federal court in Tucson. Sanchez-Meza, also known as Lionel Portillo-Meza, and Soto-Barraza were part of a five-man crew that planned on robbing drug smugglers when they encountered Agent Brian Terry and three others on Dec. 14, 2010…Terry never had a chance to fire. He died of a gunshot wound that entered through his back.”
While we cannot bring Brian back, it is a step in the right direction that these murderers were convicted.  Now…if only we can convict the other criminals (Eric Holder) who were responsible for the debacle known as Fast and Furious.
