Obama Administration Seals Court Records of Agent Brian Terry’s Murder

On December 14, 2010 in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales, Arizona, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot dead by a group of illegal border entrants who refused commands to drop their weapons after they were confronted by US agents. The illegals murdered Terry with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico. The family of slain border agent Brian Terry blamed Eric Holder for their son’s death in a recent interview.

Now the Obama Administration has sealed the court records on Agent Terry’s murder.
Judicial Watch reported:

The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.

This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the “most transparent” administration in history? After all, the rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizona’s Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels.

Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of more than 1,000 guns which have been used in numerous crimes. In Terry’s case, five illegal immigrants armed with at least two semi-automatic assault rifles were hunting for U.S. Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and Terry got hit.

We know this only because Washington D.C.’s conservative newspaper got ahold of the court documents before the government suddenly made them off limits. The now-sealed federal grand jury indictment tells the frightening story of how Terry was gunned down by Mexican drug smugglers patrolling the rugged desert with the intent to “intentionally and forcibly assault” Border Patrol agents.

You can see why the administration wants to keep this information from the public and the media, considering the smugglers were essentially armed by the U.S. government. Truth is, no one will know the reason for the confiscation of public court records in this case because the judge’s decision to seal it was also sealed, according to the news story. That means the public or media won’t have access to any new or old evidence, filings, rulings or arguments.

Obama’s failed Fast and Furious program is also linked to 200 murders in Mexico.

    in 2008 american tass was only too happy to tout the potential obama administration as the most transparent in history. now after a litany of actions like this nobody in american tass has one word of condemnation for this administration. in my mind it is a toss up between colonization or the media as to which is the greatest threat to our freedom.

    Mexicans will be OK with all the death and mayhem and carnage in their country because of Obama+Holder running guns for the cartels
    Mexicans will shame Obama into signing amnesty in return for shutting up about Fast and Furious.
    That government doesn’t care about its people , just like the US government

    With Nixon the coverup was worse than the crime, with Obama the crime is far, far worse than the coverup, so far. If I was involved in this fiasco in any way at all I’d be absolutely sure my life insurance policies were paid up. Any moment now I expect people scheduled to testify before Congress to start disappearing.

    The Administration clearly wants to hide something in the public record from the public. If this doesn’t pass the smell test, nothing does.

    And yet, there is no doubt the MSM will never bring this to the light of day.

    I am coming to believe that while we must work to send Obama home in 2012, we need to develop a coordinated plan to bring down the MSM. These people are really the worms that are causing the entire apple to rot.

    Any ideas about how we can go about accomplishing this objective? We simply cannot stand around continuing to lament their hypocrisy and their carrying the water for the Democratic Party. Lets stop bitching and develop a plan to rid ourselves of them within 3 to 5 years. If we do not do this, we’ll be facing the same old, same old for the rest of our lives.

    Seals the records, I don’t know, so I’ll ask, doesn’t a judge of some sort have to allow this to happen? If the answer is yes, then the lap dogs that slavishly toe the party line in the judiciary are more dangerous than the Taliban.

  • MrGoodWench

    THIS is the moment GOP, seize it.
    Saturate the media with your outrage .
    STOP anwering questions on any topic asked by anyone, just excoriate this regime as a murdering hostile entity which it really is , regardless of the topic.
    Flood the social media with frank and strong repudiation of Obama’s actions , malintents and malice. This can’t be allowed to go on. No judge should be able to do this to America.
    This is an anti-American regime which kills its own citizens for kicks.
    Stop living in denial and take control of the national conversation. There are things more important than a woman who can’t prove an affair with Cain .

    Yes a Federal judge sealed the records, then pulled in the hole behind himself and sealed his reasons for sealing the records.

    “The U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego, which is prosecuting the case, would confirm only that it was sealed. Also sealed was the judge’s reason for sealing the case.”

    Even George Orwell would be amazed by something like this.

    Impeach Obama and fire Holder and let’s get back to greater ethics, moral values and America can stand taller than before.

    But we know that won’t happy, yes we will have morals, values and there will be a president we will be proud of but impeachment, highly doubtful. But that is not to say after the next president in 2012 is elected there can’t be a trial and convictions forth coming no many who the person or persons are.

    This is horrible for the family of Border Agent Brian Terry but these records will be unsealed.

    In the meantime, there will be T.V. Ads a coming, America needs to know exactly how sick this administration really is and without media bias.

    Obama, Axelrod, Holder, Geithner, Jarrett all are conning America. They are using some of the most deceiving methods and trickery and every American who don’t follow politics need to know.

    They need to know everything that has been stalling this nation’s productivity.

    I think President Obama is trying to deceive the public in pretending that he was not a part of Congress that has made some decisions in the past that got us to where we are today.

    Smart Lady. And we have really lost someone special this time around by her not getting into the election. Now, it is neither here nor there. But Obama is deceive America. He has no real desire to do the work of the people. He has complain and pulled tricks that are so in our face.

    And now, we must all tell anyone we know what is truly going on here.

    “Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive” and this will come back to bite Obama in the butt.

    You cannot have so many blunders and tell so many lies that sooner or later it will all catch up to each and every deceiver in the Obama administration. This is just how it works. Naive, possibly, but it is coming the rudest awakening of all and it will be with your help to tell anyone you know exactly what Obama and his friends have done and may do, and then the great awakening will come. Obama will lose the 2012 elections.

    So the marxist despot who got into the big league by getting a marxist in the judiciary to unseal his rival’s divorce records,
    now wants to hold on to the White House
    by getting a marxist judge to seal his own murder records…
    How ironic !

    My Congressman 135 term Republican Jim Sensenbrenner, was once SOMEWHAT of a leader. I have called his office on this matter several times. Apparently CONGRESSMAN FOR LIFE SENSENBRENNER signed some sort of LETTER on this matter. (Agent Terry’s death that is).

    I’m very proud of my Congressman. He SIGNED A LETTER.

  • jainphx

    Term limits Gus, it’s the only way.

    How much are they being paid. And what about Obama Care. I trust justice but in this case there is none.

  • bigL

    AND THE gOP? Crickets. They are useless. The Permanent Loser Party.
    The GOP will not run any campaign at all against the Obamster. Forget the President race.
    Take care of your family, keep your job, get a skill to get a job. Don’t waste any time on the Presidency.
    Work on the Senate. If not in yr state , the next one over. we need 7 or 8. Plus get rid of afew Gop hacks anothe 3 0r 4. Then we can block the Junta’s plans

  • gus

    I agree. TERM LIMITS. I’m sure HARRY REID will bring that up for a vote!!!!

  • Multitude

    Nice move by the progressives in power! This should buy them sufficient time to move this past the next election, after which it’ll be irrelevant. Sen Issa and Grandma Grassley, assuming this is Prussian military rules and not Napoleon, are moving so slow that that they’ll never get close enough in time.

    Second revolution is so close, I can smell the dreams of killing fields rotting in Barack’s mind.
