This is a breaking event, and it is far too early to know whether or not the weapons involved came from the DOJ’s Fast and Furious gun-running plot, or similar gun-running plots in Texas, New Mexico, California, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Louisiana, etc., that have put what I estimate to be more than 20,000 U.S. guns in the hands of criminals.
Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.
The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010. The area is considered a remote part of the state and sources tell Fox News that the shooting occurred about eight miles from the border.
The injured agent was airlifted to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.
The search for the killer is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office.
Two weeks ago, the station was named after Brian Terry who died in a shootout in December 2010 not far from Tuesday’s shooting.
Look for the MSM to swallow every bit of spin offered up in defense of the Obama Administration at face value, without any attempt to get independent sourcing. We’re five weeks out from the election. Undesirable facts must be covered up if at all possible.
