Brian Terry’s brother rips Eric Holder over ‘shocking’ ineptitude
Kent Terry, the brother of slain border agent Brian Terry, sent a scathing letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding to know why the United States has let years pass without holding anyone accountable for Operation Fast and Furious.
In his letter, Mr. Terry wrote, Breitbart.com reported: “Mr. Holder, I am going to get right to the point of this letter. I am not pleased with your behavior as America’s Attorney General. Simply denying that you had no knowledge about Operation Fast and Furious is troubling in itself, but for you to not comply with Congress is even more troubling. It is shocking to know that the Attorney General of the United States had no knowledge or was not made aware of Fast and Furious until after the death of my brother, Brian Terry.”
He then asked why Mr. Holder has not held anyone in his department, or in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, accountable for his brother’s 2010 murder.
“For you, Mr. Holder, to be so ill served by your own advisers on your watch is unbelievable,” he wrote, Breitbart reported. “If that is the case, then you would think there would be accountability to your so called advisers who did not inform you. Where is the accountability Mr. Holder?”
Fast and Furious was a 2009 operation that allowed ATF agents to send 2,000 high-powered rifles across the Mexico borders, with hope of tracking them and discovering the whereabouts of drug cartel criminals.
Law enforcement seized two of those weapons in connection with Mr. Terry’s death, which took place about 17 miles from the Mexico border in Arizona. Washington Times
