Posted on 09/09/2011 8:45:58 AM PDT by thouworm
A third gun linked to "Operation Fast and Furious" was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, new documents obtained exclusively by Fox News suggest, contradicting earlier assertions by federal agencies that police found only two weapons tied to the federal government's now infamous gun interdiction scandal.
Sources say emails support their contention that the FBI concealed evidence to protect a confidential informant. Sources close to the Terry case say the FBI informant works inside a major Mexican cartel and provided the money to obtain the weapons used to kill Terry.
Unlike the two AK-style assault weapons found at the scene, the third weapon could more easily be linked to the informant. To prevent that from happening, sources say, the third gun "disappeared."

The government lied ?
Imagine that ?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Been waiting on the video. They have EMAILS! DAMN!!!
Is ANY of this making it into the MSM?
...Did they “dis-appear the informant yet???
This is NOT a National Security issue. Release all the info to the general public. We will make up our own minds. The only reason not to release the info is to protect the administration.
The Fox story showed the emails. They can’t hide this anymore! The FBI knew, and watched. They let it go and go on. This is huge. And the third gun *mysteriously* disappeared.
Is this story going anywhere outside of conservative circles or has the MSM working for ObamaThugs totally shut it down?
And probably the gun used to shoot the congress woman along with killing a judge and several others was also an F&F gun. We’ve probably been lied to that it was not.
Sorry: this video is NOT the new one. Same show; same reporter; OLD story
I don’t see how they can avoid it now. Some of the nsn has been trying to say this was just a *botched operation* but these two emails nail the coffin shut.
Tinkering with evidence in a homocide investigation of a Federal Agent?
That would make them an accessory BEFORE and AFTER the fact, and complicit in the homocide, not to mention obstructing . Agreed , this is HUGE !
Yep, the "resident" at 1600 Penn. Ave.
I’m definitely calling my commie congresscritter, not that it will do much good. I’m still calling.
Is ANY of this making it into the MSM?
Not yet. CBS has carried an article. To my knowledge even DRUDGE has never picked up the scandal. We are all wondering what he is waiting for.
I have the wwindow open and keep checking. should be up fairly soon. It is DAMNING! It literally took my breaath away.
Yeah, the Drudge thing totally mystifies me.
It mystifies us all. We have turned this in on his tips a zillion times. Nada.
Drudge has punted on a lot of stories.
Yeah, just like they are gonna 'protect' someone at Solyndra, too................
uh crap!!! STILL not the right video! This is pi%%ing me off!
Sipsey Street ping (I pinged you to thread)
FOX blows the Terry murder cover-up to pieces, and the Gunwalker Plot cover-up with it.
He’s obviously made a conscious decision to ignore this. It’s impossible that he doesn’t know about it.
Maybe they threatened his life or his children.
They are mafia, after all.
THIS should be it. It’s up on the article.
Nothin’ there, but a leaking gun.
Thanks. That IS the video! I saw it on FOX today because I had taped the program. They covered it at the very end of their show, and it was TOO short. That’s when I went to FOX news website and found the article. FOX should expand their coverage and cover this all weekend. Their is no more important news, unless a terrorist bomb goes off somewhere.
MestaMachine’s link to VIDEO:
Drudge has it on his site. Top left.
[snip] Border Patrol agents shot beanbags at a group of suspected bandits before the men returned fire during a confrontation in a remote canyon, killing agent Brian Terry with a single gunshot, records show.
And an illegal immigrant wounded in the gunbattle who is now the only person in custody linked to the slaying contends he never fired a shot, according to FBI search warrant requests filed in the U.S. District Court in Tucson.
The documents provide the most detailed version yet of what happened in the deadly gunbattle Dec. 14 in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales.
The documents say the group of illegal border entrants refused commands to drop their weapons after agents confronted them at about 11:15 p.m. Two agents fired beanbags at the migrants, who responded with gunfire. Two agents returned fire, one with a long gun and one with a pistol, but Terry was mortally wounded in the gunfight.
“Drudge has it on his site. Top left.”
Thanks you. FINALLY! Yeaaaa! Small headline...not in red, but that’s a start.
The glory that was Rome is of another day. WAKE UP AMERICA!
He also has a link to this LA Times story:
“And probably the gun used to shoot the congress woman along with killing a judge and several others was also an F&F gun. Weve probably been lied to that it was not.
That was the DOJ’s biggest fear. They were panicked. As all this gunwalker news leaks out, the administration is doing its frenetic best to keep the MSM busy with “important” news. It can’t last forever. They can’t bury this anymore.
After I posted the thread, I sent the FOX link to a friend that gets Drudge’s attention (but I had done that twice before [to no avail] with a gunwalker story, thinking that Drudge was just waiting for a “smoking gun” story from a mainstream source).
Good that he has now posted both stories. We will see where he goes from here and if he stays on top of it. If Drudge keeps up the pressure, it will expedite critical mass.
MM: Did you see Raebie’s post that Drudge has 2 gunwalker story links in top left column?
There was a blurb about the 3rd weapon being a H&K MP5
If so, that would explain how it was harder to “explain”.
Yeah. I went and checked it out. No sirens, but at least they are there. Fingers crossed. I mean, is it possible he didn’t think this story was important enough to report?
Whew! Sure would.
And it conveniently disappeared? Oh boy!
