FBI Covered Up a Third ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Linked to Death of Border Agent Brian Terry?

Everytime I read about all the coverups and obstructions of justice involved with operation “Fast and Furious,” I can’t help but be reminded of the Watergate scandal—except, no one died in Watergate:

Report: Third ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Linked to Border Agent’s Killing
September 9, 2011 – Buck Sexton – The Blaze

A third gun linked to the botched Operation “Fast and Furious” federal firearms sting may have been found at the scene of murdered U.S. Customs and Border Agent Brian Terry.

New documents have emerged that contradict the previous government claim that only two weapons tied to the Fast and Furious investigation were found at the crime scene, according to Fox News.

If true, these revelations could lead to serious criminal charges, including obstruction of justice, tampering with evidence, and making false official statements.

Fox’s sources have claimed  the FBI covered up evidence from the Brian Terry murder crime scene to protect a confidential informant. According to those same sources, the reason the FBI would go to such lengths to protect an informant if because he/she:

“Works inside a major Mexican cartel and provided the money to obtain the weapons used to kill Terry. Unlike the two AK-style assault weapons found at the scene, the third weapon could more easily be linked to the informant. To prevent that from happening, sources say, the third gun “disappeared.””

There are also a series of emails Fox has obtained from the hours after Terry was killed on Dec. 14, 2010,  that top ATF officials wrote that appear to indicate knowledge of a third weapon. In one email, an intelligence analyst wrote that:

“She had successfully traced two weapons at the scene, and is now “researching the trace status of firearms recovered earlier today by the FBI.””

In a response to that email, deputy ATF-Phoenix director George Gillett asks:

“Are those two (AK-47s) in addition to the gun already recovered this morning?”

When Fox showed the emails to a former federal prosecutor, the response was shock. “I have never seen anything like this,” he said,  ”I can see the FBI may have an informant involved but I can’t see them tampering with evidence. If this is all accurate, I’m stunned.”

The FBI declined to comment on specific questions relayed by Fox, and directed reporters to existing court records. So far, those records only reflect two Fast and Furious guns at the crime scene of Brian Terry.

A lawyer for Brian Terry’s family told Fox News that :

“The family wants answers. They’d like to put this to rest and put closure to exactly what happened to Brian.”

Meanwhile, a Congressional investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal is ongoing.

    I bet when the light of day uncovers all the information on this story, we will see a CFR member, and agenda behind it.

      As a Christian I will still pray for their salvation, even as they have their heads sawed off. Really, it couldn’t happen to a group of more deserving people.

    As I was walking my neighborhood recently I came across some gang graffiti in my once peaceful and quiet town. The elderly couple across the street was not long ago subjected to a home invasion. So I keep my eyes open and an aura of suspicion is materializing, change! Our leaders did all of this to us.

      In the olden days I had guns, unloaded and in a centralized case. Now I have them loaded and in strategic locations all around the house, change!

        Used to be you could defend yourself with a nice Arkansas toothpick but not so much anymore, change! Still, knives are nice to have around too.

    Sadly, this is a plot from the Rockford Files, yes I’m serious. One episode featured the FBI and ATF crawling up each others rears to get a piece of the action. The difference, in the 70s they were smuggling what they called, loaded cigars, bad guns.

    We have the Good, us. The Bad, them. And the Ugly, them other guys.

    Hey Blondie! You know what you are! You dirty rotten SOB!

      Clint Eastwood has become similar to Charlton Heston in terms of the prophetic nature of the films he chose to participate in. I recently watched Dirty Harry and then The Enforcer, all of the stuff that angered Harry Callahan we are seeing today. It’s like the entire country is being run by the city hall of 1970s San Francisco. Take The Enforcer for example. At the end, after Callahan saves the retarded fool of a Mayor by blasting the boss terrorist with a Laws rocket the Mayor basically crawls over to Harry and sez, but don’t you want to ride in the helicopter with me? These types are making me sick to my stomach.
