After the slaying of United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry it was discovered that weapons were being smuggled from the United States into Mexico by our own government. This culminated into the discovery of Operation Fast and Furious, which has been a rather undesired blemish on the current administration’s already heavily blemished record. It appears as though the coverup is now in full swing though:
The case against Osorio-Arellanes and others involved in the shooting has since been sealed, meaning that neither the public nor the media has access to any evidence, filings, rulings or arguments.
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.
The indictment lists the names of other suspects in the shooting, but they are redacted.
In the Terry killing, two Romanian-built AK-47 assault rifles found at the scene were identified as having been purchased in a Glendale, Ariz., gun shop as part of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) failed Fast and Furious investigation.
A number of rank-and-file Border Patrol agents have questioned why the case has not gone to trial, nearly a year after Terry’s killing. Several also have concerns about the lack of transparency in the investigation, compounded now by the fact that the court case has been sealed.
Nothing to see here, move along citizen. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anybody considering how big of a deal this entire case is. The government was caught doing something naughty, arming Mexican drug cartels, and they want the entire mess to go away. You’re not suppose to inquire about it, records are now sealed, and everybody is supposed to pretend this entire situation was caused by American’s “loose” gun laws.
Only one word comes to mind after reading this, disgusting. On the other hand this should demonstrated without a doubt that our government doesn’t feel as though they need to answer to us, if we ask a question they can just classify all related documents and tell us to buzz off.
