We know that weapons provided to drug cartels by the Obama Administration as part of the “Fast & Furious” debacle were found at the scene where Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed near Nogales, Ariz., in 2010.
We know that Terry was sent out against these professional hoodlums armed only with bean bags as ammunition. We know that the Regime has slammed the door shut on attempts to find out the rest, with Obama absurdly claiming executive privilege on behalf of Eric Holder, and Holder, who has been caught in lies, being held in contempt of Congress. As time passes, we continue to learn more.
Whistle-blowing ATF special agent John Dodson has a book out entitled The Unarmed Truth. In it he makes the alarming allegation that the entire incident which resulted in Terry’s death was staged by federal authorities. From The Arizona Republic:
Dodson … contends that the bandits who killed Terry were working for FBI operatives and were sent to the border to do a drug rip-off using intelligence from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
Previous revelations by Dodson regarding Fast & Furious, the operation by which Obama, Holder, et al. provided drug cartels with over 2,000 American weapons in an apparent attempt to generate bad press for the Second Amendment, have been verified by an Office of the Inspector General’s report:
[Dodson] asserts that the DEA had information about, and may have orchestrated, a large drug shipment through Peck Canyon that December night. He alleges that DEA agents shared that intelligence with FBI counterparts, who advised criminal informants from another cartel that the load would be “theirs for the taking.”
“Stealing such a shipment would increase the clout of the FBI informants in the cartel organization they had penetrated,” Dodson wrote, “and thus lead to better intel for them in the future.”
Representatives of the FBI, ATF and DEA declined to discuss that agent’s assertions or to answer questions about Terry’s death.
That is what is known in the Age of Obama as transparency. More transparency:
U.S. District Court records concerning the case have been sealed at the request of the Justice Department.
Dodson told The Arizona Republic that ATF administrators unsuccessfully tried to block publication of his manuscript.
That’s enough transparency to make it obvious the government has more to hide. Lucky for Obama he can count on the media to show at best tepid interest in finding it.
Another revelation from the book is that “a significant portion” of the arms purchased by drug cartels to be smuggled into Mexico with federal assistance were bought with money provided by the FBI — that is, by taxpayers. If Watergate was enough to tear Nixon out of the White House, this story could eventually land Obama behind bars — if the media wakes up and does its job.
