A man was killed in a botched gun-running scheme sanctioned by our own U.S. Department of Justice. Brian Terry - beloved son, friend, relative - was shot and killed with weapons that high ranking officials in our government knew would find their way into th hands of drug cartels. The grief that his parents feel must be doubly unbearable knowing the sordid story behind their son's death.
In an attempt by Congress to investigate Fast and Furious, the chief law enforcer of the nation - whose job it is to enforce U.S. law - unbelievably engaged in stonewalling Congress. Was there more to the story? Was chief-law-enforcer withholding other sordid details from Congress? We know he withheld documents. Held in contempt by congress, chief-law-enforcer was supported in his refusal to comply efforts by no less than the president himself.
Where is our outrage? Why are we not speaking out, insisting that our chief-law-enforcer be made to uphold the law and to cooperate and comply with the investigation by Congress? A man dies senselessly while giving service to his country. Shouldn't that be reason enough for local gun clubs, those in law enforcement and citizens concerned about coverups at the highest levels of government, to let their voices be heard?
