Border Patrol Agent Death Considered Collateral Damage

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s Death Considered Collateral Damage!

Very few times that I can remember has the Mainstream media gotten it right, well not only did the get it right, they hit this story completely out of the ball park.  A well done goes out to CBS for their coverage of this story.

If anyone has any lingering thoughts that about the Obama administration, this article, should eliminate any questions you might have had that the Obama Administration is only corrupt, but that they are the most evil administration in the history of this once once proud Nation. Not until this administration is removed from the White House will "We the People have an opportunity to recover our Nations INTEGRITY.
At first I first thought I had misread the News article, I had not.  The death of any Police Officer be it a Federal Agent, as Brian Terry who was a United States Border Patrol Agent. To classify any Federal, State, County, or local officer as "COLLATERAL DAMAGE",  is OBSCENE and total disregard of Agent Terry’s death,  and disrespectful to Agents Terry’s family.  So here is the headline and the article in it’s entirety from CBS NewsDraw your own conclusions. 

WASHINGTONIn secretly recorded conversations between two individuals deeply entwined in the ATF’s controversial “Fast and Furious” operation, the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry is described as “collateral damage.”

The recordings were obtained exclusively by CBS News. The man who made them – Arizona gun dealer Andre Howard – ran the Lone Wolf Trading Company and was speaking with Hope MacAllister, the ATF operation’s case agent.

Two of the guns Howard sold while cooperating with the ATF that were later found at Terry’s murder.  “It happened. It’s terrible,” Howard said. “That’s life ok we move on.”

More ATF secret audio coverage

Both Howard and MacAllister also shared concerns about Special Agent John Dodson who by that point had gone public with allegations about “Fast and Furious” and was assigned to the FBI. It was Dodson who first publicly disclosed allegations about “Fast and Furious” in an interview with CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson. That interview took place several weeks before the recorded conversations took place. In his interview, Dodson said thousands of guns had been allowed to “walk” to Mexico – straight into the hands of the cartels – without intervention by ATF.

(Scroll down to listen to the audio and read the text of the excerpts)

In the following excerpts, they talk about the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Two weapons purchased by ATF Fast and Furious suspects were found at the murder scene. They also discuss concerns that ATF whistleblower John Dodson, who had then been moved out of the ATF office and tasked to the FBI, has information that could be damaging to the government.


Dealer: Unfortunately a consequence occurred from a weapon shall we say that found its way into the wrong area ok and that was not anticipated. Nobody could foresee that that’s collateral damage I think the term is. It happened. It’s terrible. That’s life ok we move on. Unfortunately, Mr. Dodson with his allegation is a pain in the a–. Now, my understanding now is it will be impossible now that he will be able to substantiate anything directly because that evidence is gone. I want you to know that. It don’t exist. Not that one. You understand me?

Agent: MMhmm.

Dealer: Good. I get that.


Dealer: My biggest problem is Dodson. You know this guy has damaged the hell out of me. I mean I walked out of here yesterday.

Agent: Mmhmm.

Dealer: I got it from the tattoo parlor, I got some damn Mexicans and white trash over there.

Agent: Yeah…

Dealer: Yelling across the parking lot: “can i buy 300 AK 47′s?? Would you turn me in, over that?” This is the kind of sh– i’m getting.

Agent: Yeah.


Dealer: The most damning thing that you guys got to be aware of I think hypothetically is was there, you have to ask yourselves this first I’m just throw in this out there, was there a communication that hypothetically the US Attorney’s office uh was entertained with the DOJ in reference to any ballistics tests or anything? Is there any way any of these idiots..

Agent: The problem is I mean we’re not investigating that case.

Dealer: I know the FBI is.

Agent: And he’s (Dodson) assigned to the FBI. I, I have not, I don’t have any way of knowing what he has access to. And that’s on the FBI. I mean that’s on them. If they consider him, don’t consider him an operational security issue, that’s their f—–g fault. But I don’t have access to that sh–, I don’t know I have no idea what the FBI.

Dealer: (unintell.) I know you don’t…I’m saying that’s a whole parallel issue.

Agent: Right.


Dealer: What about the emails copies he’s got?

Agent: Those emails are a year ago that’s why I wonder what he I mean

Dealer: Let me help you out. Here’s what I smell. There’s a reason you ran (unintell.) about not talking about any of your other agents out there.

Agent: Yeah.

Dealer: You got some rats in there honey…


Dealer: I’ll tell you some of these motherf—–s, I don’t know if they’re giving it to Dodson, I think they are, somebody’s got some inter-agency copies not just this sh–.

In the audiotapes, ATF Agent MacAllister tells Howard that a third weapon recovered at the Brian Terry murder scene last December is an SKS assault rifle. Agent MacAllister claims to know that the SKS "had nothing to do with" the Brian Terry murder and, unlike the WASR's, did not trace back to the Lone Wolf gun store. 

It's unclear why a weapon would be, in essence, missing from the evidence disclosed at the crime scene under FBI jurisdiction. 

Agent MacAllister and Howard (the gun dealer) also discuss various Republicans and Democrats in Congress who are investigating Fast and Furious. They express concern that whistleblower ATF special agent John Dodson has further evidence that could be damaging to the government.

Until next time...Walk Slow  And Drink Lots Of Water..
