Family of murdered Border Agent lashes out at President Obama

The mother of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry
spoke
with, WPHT, a radio station in
Philadelphia,
Wednesday morning
and said President Obama is
‘compounding this tragedy’ with the executive privilege
assertion in connection with the Fast and Furious program.

“The only thing I can say is, if he did that they
apparently don’t want [Rep. Darrell] Issa to get the
documents to see
what’s in there,” Josephine Terry said.

“My son and I were very, very close. And my son was a
person that believed in justice and he believed in telling
the truth,” Terry said when asked what she wants out of
this. “He was a man of his
honor. And if anybody knew him, they knew that. And I know
he would be saying ‘you know what, I died for my
country.’ ”

Terry believes the truth should be known.

“[Brian] was a true American and I think he deserves the
truth and I think everybody should know the truth,” she
said. “And if this was a bad thing they did with Fast and
Furious it should be acknowledged so it never happens to
anybody else’s son.”

In a statement released
Wednesday
the Terry family says that their son “was
killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with
weapons from this failed Justice Department gun
trafficking investigation. For more than 18 months we have
been asking our federal government for justice and
accountability.”
