The family of slain border agent Brian Terry blamed Eric Holder for their son’s death in a November interview.

Today the family of murdered border agent Brian Terry filed a $25 million lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The family claims ATF wrongdoing in the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning program.
FOX News reported:

The family of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry has filed a $25 million wrongful death suit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — claiming Terry was killed with AK-47s that were knowingly sold under the Fast and Furious gunrunning probe to a straw purchaser for drug cartels.

In a 65-page complaint, attorneys for the family claim ATF “wrongdoing” in Fast and Furious.

“ATF’s failures were not only negligent but in violation of ATF’s own policies and procedures,” the complaint claims.

The family has also filed suit against the Lone Wolf Trading Company seeking unspecified damages for selling the weapons to the straw purchaser.

The suit says Lone Wolf knowingly sold “hundreds of weapons” to various straw purchasers and realized “hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits from these sales.”

Last November, ten months after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down by Mexican drug cartel suspects in Arizona, his family has received a letter from Attorney General Eric Holder saying he is “sorry” for their loss.
