Border Patrol agent shot, killed on patrol in Ariz was Provo native

Oct 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KSL-TV

A Border Patrol agent was shot to death Tuesday in Arizona near the U.S.-Mexico line, the first fatal shooting of an agent since a deadly 2010 firefight with Mexican bandits that spawned congressional probes of a botched government gun-smuggling investigation.

no, he actually is your president, and mine. he is from a different party, and yes he happens to black, but the electoral college put him into office based on the votes of the american electorate, fair and square.

the big government takeover socialist turner diary bullshit you people predicted, what with malcom x in the white house and all that, has not come to pass. he is just another democratic president from the democratic party. there is nothing foreign about his administration. they are pretty much the clintons all over again with a less charismatic leader, that is it. his signature policy issue has not been rolling back clintons welfare reform, nor hillary care, not even the patriot act, but the same health care plan his opponent passed in massacusetts. but hes a traitor. this is so tiresome.

sometimes you get the feeling the thing that ought to really make the tea baggers heads explode is not the fact that he is black, but that, for all that, he is simply, at the end of the day, an american president. four years later the mundane reality of this guy still has yet to sink in with the GOP. the con of it all does not work on the country like it used to.

by the way, operation fast and furious was a few years old already when obama took office:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Fast_a...

" The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran a series of "gunwalking" sting operations[2][3] between 2006[4] and 2011.[2][5] These operations were done under the umbrella of Project Gunrunner, a project intended to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico by interdicting straw purchasers and gun traffickers within the United States.[6] "

Do you know why fast and furious started under bush? same reason it continued under obama: they are both american presidents.

also, this:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-chec...

"Under Secretary Napolitano’s leadership, we have strengthened border security beyond what many believed was possible. They wanted more agents on the border. Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004, a build up that began under President Bush and that we have continued.”

The US Libyan embassy had already been BOMBED TWICE! and threats posted on FACEBOOK!

From the Daily Beast

Jihadists twice set off explosives at the consulate prior to the incident that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, and announced threats on Facebook about escalating attacks on Western targets in the run-up to the 9/11 anniversary, according to whistleblowers reaching out to House Republicans.

In the five months leading up to this year’s 9/11 anniversary, there were two bombings on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and increasing threats to and attacks on the Libyan nationals hired to provide security at the U.S. missions in Tripoli and Benghazi.

Details on these alleged incidents stem in part from the testimony of a handful of whistleblowers who approached the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the days and weeks following the attack on the Benghazi consulate.

The new information disclosed in the letter obtained by The Daily Beast strongly suggests the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the late Ambassador Chris Stevens were known by U.S. security personnel to be targets for terrorists. Indeed, the terrorists made their threats openly on Facebook.

BARACK WILL BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR TREASONOUS ACTIVITIES IN F&F and now reckless studied negligence for the 911 consulate attack!

davidh64 is right, about wide receiver. point taken. doesnt mean im a liberal, nor a brain dead lemming.

i am an american though. and i dont like all this unpatriotic talk about the president. border patrol agents have a dangerous job. they carry guns for a reason. they confront and intercept and tangle with some very dangerous people. its terrible that one would be killed in the line of duty, but face it, its a war zone down here.

obama is definately not perfect at protecting the border, nor was his predecessor. and yes he let guns go over the border too (wide reciever). the program was shut down before obama took ofice (or so i read this morning) because bushs people realized it was a mistake. but bush was a white republican and he got a lot more slack.

border patrol agent killed while theres a black AG and a black president and people go ape about it, saying hes taking the side of the mexican cartels and illegal aliens. give me a break. have some patriotism, people.

ill write in ron paul if thats what it takes, im not voting for obama, but you know what, the majority of the country did vote for him and that makes him the president, of the whole country, even those who tell themselves hes not their president.

if we dont have a little faith in the institutions of our american democracy, then we are in real trouble as a nation. there are those foreign and domestic that would like to see us down and out, and all this casual labeling of the president as a traitor, or some shaka zulu manchurian candidate is just feeding into all that. hes president. he was elected fair and square. the country has not exploded. we are all still here. maybe we should try to be on the same team for once instead of stroking our guns and dreaming of civil war.

There are probably some. But get a grip. You live in communist China. People disappearing. No freedom of speech. The government dictates your lives. The whole system in China is ruled by the mafia. The government is the mafia. They even tell you how many children you can have. Maybe a good thing as you cannot control your growth on your own and are the leaders at gobbling up the seas and the planet. You are their puppets. Besides this is about a border patrol agent that was killed in the line of duty. You are a very strange person indeed. Also try writing without capitals letters. Very hard to read.

I have no faith in the president of the United States. A president who bows to dictators, and does not speak up when other countries criticize the USA. Look at Calderon he speaks up against the Border Patrol when a person is shot on the river in Mexico. Not saying it was right or wrong. Our President says nothing about a Border patrol agent shot in the line of duty by thugs from another country. Calderon does not weigh in about the agent that was shot.

The president of the USA is a big coward, and needs to stand up to these people that speak poorly of America. Calderon does. I actually admire him for that even if I do not agree with him most of the time.

After all many of the people that live in these countries are coming to the USA so it must not be that bad. They are also trying to get into other countries that have more freedoms and opportunities.

Yes. We need to give up our freedoms as you have. We can then be controlled. You are brainwashed and you are a puppet. Had your one baby yet? Demonstrated on the streets yet for oppression. Get you killed or in prison. What we need is to close the borders down from illegal trespassers and put drug dealers in prison for life. But not change our system. I like freedom. Actually more freedoms here in Mexico then China will ever know. Sometimes we succeed because of our freedoms and sometimes we fail. But we have the choice. They should not be taken away so everyone can live in mediocrity.

You are 100% right. Fast and Furious was on the watch of Obama. But if holder did not know about it, how did Obama to be honest. Is it a cover up clear to the top? I am not an Obama supporter but I do not believe Obama had anything to do with it. It is hard to know every little thing that goes on even in your own business among employees, let alone big government I would thing. It is getting bigger all the time. Companies are trimming down to make ends meet. Maybe the government needs to do the same.

You said bushes people realized it was a mistake. It has nothing to do with color. You just put it in your own words, that's all. Nothing bad came out of it. So let me make up some words. Maybe I could say that Bush was smarter because he realized it was a bad idea. Maybe Obama is dumb because he could not figure it out. Where does color come into play. Why was Bush given slack because he was white. If he knew about it and was the reason it was shut down, that makes him smart.

But I doubt Obama knew anything about it. If Bush did, good for him for being on top of it and stopping it before it created an international incident. If Obama knew about it and had put a stop on it, I would say good for him also.

If Obama would have not been voted president would you have said it was because he was black? Well he was so was it because he was black? People just need to leave the race crap out of many conversations, it many cases you sound really good until that part is brought up. After all all Americans voted in a Black American President.

Excuse me, all you did in your post was slam and blame Bush. Better luck next time.

"Wide Receiver"
450 weapons
FEB-2006 to NOV-2007
Mexican authorities were aware and cooperated in operation
Many of the weapons recovered
Indictments issues

"Fast and Furious"
2,000+ weapons
OCT-2009 to JAN-2011
Operation was terminated when it became public
Mexican authorities were never aware or cooperated in operation
No weapons recovered
No indictments or charges to date

Yea the two operations are so much alike. NOT!

Wrong. Both Bush and Obama were aware of the respective operations. I've already posted the relevant highlights comparing the two.

Or if as you claim Obama was unaware, why have no charges or indictments been brought against Holder? Sorry but the claim that Obama was unaware holds no water.
