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.

Brian TerryI am posting this in honor of Brian A. Terry and to help bring attention to the Fast & Furious debacle.  I served in the Marines with Brian and he was a good man, a good Marine, and a good federal agent.  Brian was killed on December 15, 2010 while conducting operations in Arizona.  The gun used to kill Brian was provided to gunrunners by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms during Operation Fast & Furious.  You can read more about Fast & Furious here.  

As we approach the Holidays we are reminded of the Military members serving overseas.  Let us not forget those brave men and women who serve in harm’s way in our own backyards every single day.  Law enforcement, firefighters, and other ‘public servants’ are often overlooked yet they walk into the fray on a daily basis.

UPDATE: Fox news is reporting that “House GOP leaders said Friday they are pursuing a plan to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and the Justice Department in contempt for “stonewalling” them over information regarding the administration’s failed Fast and Furious gun-tracking program.” 

Brian Terry and I served together in the US Marines in the early 1990’s.  He was a good friend, a good Marine and a good person.  After the Marines Brian went on to be a police officer and Border Patrol Agent and member of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC). On December 15th, 2010 he was killed by border bandits armed with AK 47s.  Brian was armed only with ‘less than lethal’ weapons.  The weapons used to kill Agent Terry were later confirmed to be part of the ATF Fast & Furious program in which weapons were allowed by the ATF to be purchased and smuggled into Mexico.   This program was endorsed by current Atty General Eric Holder.  This is not a political post.  Please remember Agent Brian Terry and, if possible, purchase a bumper sticker or t-shirt in remembrance of him.  www.RememberBrianTerry.com
