Gunrunner: Brian Terry murdered one year ago tonight
One year ago tonight Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in Peck Canyon because the United States government was supplying known Mexican criminals and drug lords with weapons in order to advance a political agenda. Some of these drug lords–and an FBI informant working with the ATF–entered Peck Canyon on the night of December 15th, and even though the ATF also knew that Border Patrol was in the area they decided not to inform them of an operation that put all Border Patrol agents lives in danger and ultimately cost Brian Terry’s his. His death was avoidable.
One year later, and still there has been no justice for the Terry family as those responsible for his death still hold office. Stating he did not fear death, but feared losing his honor, here are some of Brian Terry’s words; as you read them remember that when he wrote them he had no idea he would be murdered by the country he spent his life defending:
“I will fight you, no matter how insurmountable it may seem,to the death if need be. In order that it may never be said that I was not a warrior.”
