U.S. Attorney Waffles Over “Fast And Furious” Discussion

posted on September 10, 2015

The sooner the U.S. government can present a winning case against the last two accomplices in the 2010 murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, the better pleased we’ll be, period. (Five other defendants accepted plea deals.)

The latest hiccup in the proceedings stems from the request by the suspects’ attorneys to discuss Operation Fast and Furious, BATFE’s phenomenally ill-planned gunwalking operation. The Obama Justice Department would love to let this fade from public memory, but the broad strokes are simple: BATFE co-opted dealers to sell to illegal buyers, and then promptly lost track of 1,400 rifles and handguns. The killing of Terry is not the only murder to which the firearms have been linked.

We hope the evidence will be overwhelming and convictions rapidly result. But such angling to avoid more talk of the “Fast and Furious” embarrassment is utterly unconscionable if it puts at risk the already-minimal standard of justice for Brian Terry.
