US relations are strained over the death of Brain Terry?

What of the 200 (300?) Mexican citizens killed by Fast & Furious guns?

They don't matter?

Lousy reporting.

OMG........ I thought The Obama had been President for three years. I know The Obama and Holder ignored the Terry families pleas. But, of course, you knew that too.

Rat, does your balloon ever land? You consistantly take the prize for the most idiotic comments on the board. Do you really believe the bovine excrament that comes out of your mouth or are you just doing what they pay you for?

Project Gunrunner is an operation of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) intended to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico, in an attempt to deprive the Mexican drug cartels of weapons.

In early 2011, the operation became controversial when it was revealed that Operation Fast and Furious and other probes under Project Gunrunner had allowed guns to "walk" into the hands of Mexican drug cartels since as early as 2006.

Who was in office then?????

Bush administration had Operation Wide Reciever, you idiot. F&F was nobama's all the way.

Frederick Hill said the documents on the 2007 probe stand in contrast to statements "the Obama administration's Justice Department made to Congress in February 2011 that `ATF makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and prevent their transportation to Mexico.'"

Hill added that one difference between the 2007 incident and Operation Fast and Furious was that in the 2007 operation, "Mexican authorities were notified. However, in Operation Fast and Furious the Mexican authorities were deliberately kept in the dark."

Holder screwed the pooch on this one, no one else, pinhead.

Southern border fix. Patrol this border with fighter jets. That's right, fighter jets. We're already paying for the plane, fuel, ammo, etc. Why not train pilots in this area? They're going to be up in the air anyway. Might as well put them to use. And yes, strafing is allowed! That is deterence my friend.

Any time some criminal Mexican at the boarder gets done in, the Mexican government will cry like babies.

Its going to get worse, not that the old corrupt ruling party is back in power.

On January 20, 2009, everything the U.S. government was doing, and everything it has done since then, became Obama's responsibility, to his credit, or his blame.

Point at Bush, Clinton, Carter, et al, all you want. Fact is, everything since inauguration day 2009 belongs to Obama. If Bush started it, so what? Obama continued it, he owns it, from gun running to GITMO, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and everywhere else.

Really believe that? Take a trip across the border and you'll see what Mexico is doing. And Mexican soldiers losing their lives in the process while the demand for the drugs increases here!

Obama single-handed ruined America. Operation Fast & Furious was his pathetic attempt at stopping guns being sold in US. but it backfired on the idiot, cause he didn't have any plan in place and did not even track them. Hey keep up the good work Obama! Soon you will be gone.
