The Attorney General should waive his Presidential Deception Clause and release the organizational tapes of the Fast & Furious, Planning Meetings.

Authorities haven’t said which member of the rip-off crew was believed to have fired the fatal shot at Terry on Dec. 14, 2010. Of the five men charged in Terry’s murder, two are in custody, and three others remain fugitives.

Prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty against Osorio-Arellanes, who could face life in prison for the first-degree murder conviction.

Terry’s death revealed the botched “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling operation, marking the biggest conviction to date in a case that embarrassed the federal government and prompted a series of congressional investigations.

“Operation Fast and Furious” was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but federal agents lost track of about 1,400 of the more than 2,000 weapons — including AK-47s and other high-powered assault rifles.

Headline says:
"Mexican man pleads guilty to murder in 2010 killing of US Border Patrol agent"

But in the article the FBI says:
"Osorio-Arellanes, of El Fuerte in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, was shot during the gunfight and has been in custody since the shooting. HE TOLD INVESTIGATROS HE RAISED HIS WEAPON DURING THE SHOOTOUT BUT DIDN'T OPEN FIRE, the FBI said.

So..this guy pleads guilty to murder even though he didn't fire his weapon???

They should let the investigation begin, then do the Benghazi Deception. I would say that for him as a leader, things have gotten out of control.

Only 1400 weapons?

A drop in the bucket compared to the 190,000
AK-47s and pistols that went "missing" in Iraq when George W. Bush was in charge.

What gun-selling contributor to the Republican Party and conservative causes got that contract?

And how much was Bush's cut of the profits?

Where was Darrell Issa then?

Obama had on the job training. But it did not take so well as you can see. Maybe we need someone that can learn faster. Not saying Romney is the guy either. Because no one really knows until after the fact.
