“You Gotta Wake Your Man Up In The White House!”
The Terry family ripped the Obama Administration before the funeral of the their son who was killed in southern Arizona this week.
The family of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry slammed DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano during the funeral of their son who was murdered while protecting the Arizona border.
Not so typical was what Brian’s family had to say to KGUN9 the night before he was brought to his final resting place at Michigan Memorial Park. “I understand that Janet Napolitano called (Tuesday night). What did you say to her?” 9 On Your Side reporter Joel Waldman asked Brian Terry’s father, Kent.
“‘I said you gotta wake your man up in the White House,’” Kent responded. “And she said, ‘He’s done more in the last two years than any other president.’”
But the Terrys told Waldman that they don’t buy it. Kent, step mom Carolyn, mom Josie, older brother Kent Jr., sisters Kelly and Michelle are all angry that their son and brother, Brian, died the way he did. They’re not shy about blaming President Obama’s administration for not doing enough, taking aim directly at Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.
“She spoke with us and they were empty words today when she spoke,” said step mom Carolyn Terry.
“Why so empty?” Waldman asked.
That question prompted a flurry of comments from the Terrys: “They had no meaning to them.”
“She’ll have Christmas.”
“She’ll forget about it tomorrow.”
Meanwhile… Napolitano chided reporters for making this a story.
