Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s Killers Getting A Pass From Obama

In the latest insult delivered by President Obama to those who defend and serve the United States and its citizens, Rosario Rafael Burboa Alvarez, one of the criminal aliens indicted in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry -- pleaded guilty to murder, but has had all other charges against him dismissed.

Brian TerryOnce a potential candidate for the death penalty after the murder of Brian Terry, according to Texas TV station KVOA, the plea deal now states that the U.S. and Burboa Alvarez will ask for 360 months imprisonment, with credit for time served since his arrest in October 2012.

As part of the plea agreement, the United States agreed not to execute Burboa Alvarez and to dismiss all other charges against him, including charges of interfering with federal officers and killing Terry with "malice aforethought" the second charge in the superseding indictment.

Terry was killed in a gunfight with a rip-off crew recruited by Burboa Alvarez and later two AK-47 variants found at the crime scene were identified as part of the notorious Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gunwalking operation, Operation Fast and Furious. The scandalous operation was supposed to link guns bought at a Phoenix-area gunstore to cartel gunmen trafficking the weapons to Mexico. Instead, ATF lost more than 2,000 of those weapons. Resulting congressional investigations found that the men linked to the gun purchases were being monitored by different U.S. federal agencies like DEA, the FBI and ATF, but agents weren't sharing the information with the other agencies.

This is important because as our friends at noted, two of the guns recovered from the scene of the shootout and linked to Operation Fast and Furious, the ATF gun smuggling plot that sent thousands of guns over the border to the Sinaloa drug cartel, at the same time that Barack Obama, then Attorney General Eric Holder, and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were pushing the infamous “90-percent lie” in hopes of manufacturing public support for a ban on so-called “assault weapons.”

The” 90-percent lie” was an utterly false assertion that 90-percent of the firearms used by cartels in Mexico’s drug wars came from gun shops the United States.

The actual figure? Just eight percent of guns in cartel hands were traced to the United States. Fast and Furious, says, was just one of up to ten weapon smuggling plots from the ATF that may have shipped enough weapons to narco-terrorists to arm an infantry division 20,000 strong.

Our friend Sharyl Attkisson reports the Terry family issued a statement saying, “While we are grateful another arrest has been made the fact that the suspect was in our country illegally is a sad and in this case deadly reminder that our border is not secure.

Sharyl Attkisson reports Terry’s mother, Josephine, called the latest indictment a step in the right direction and added,

If I had to give a report card grade to Eric Holder, he would get an A with respect to his department’s prosecution of Brian’s killers; but I would give him an F for his efforts in holding those ATF and DOJ employees accountable for the many mistakes made in Operation Fast & Furious…

We agree with Brian Terry’s mother – our view is that the Obama administration figures who concocted Fast and Furious to try to make a political point are just a responsible for Terry’s death as whoever pulled the trigger. If Burboa Alvarez got 30-years then those responsible for the Fast and Furious disaster and the lies perpetrated to cover it up ought the share the cell with him.
