FAST & FURIOUS: Murderer of Border Agent Brian Terry Takes Plea Deal, Obama Admin Still Silent on Gun-Walking Plot

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 8.32.40 AMWe are still feeling the repercussions of this operation too. One of the guns used in the ‘Draw Muhammed’ terrorist attacks was connected to Fast & Furious.

Rosario Rafael Burboa Alvarez, one of the men charged with the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in a 2010 shootout between Terry’s BORTAC interdiction unit and a rip-off crew near the Mexican border, has accepted a plea deal that will put him in prison, and which will save the government from an embarrassing trial:

One of the men charged in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry pleaded guilty to one count of murder, Monday morning. Once a potential candidate for the death penalty after the murder of the agent, the drawn up plea deal now states that the U.S. and the defendant will ask for 360 months imprisonment, with credit for time served since his arrest in October 2012.

As part of the plea agreement, the United States agreed not to execute Burboa and to dismiss all other charges against him, including charges of interfering with federal officers and killing Terry with “malice aforethought” the second charge in the superseding indictment.

Two of the guns recovered from the scene of the shootout were linked to Operation Fast and Furious, an ATF gun smuggling plot that was sending thousands of guns over the border to the Sinaloa drug cartel at the same time that Barack Obama, then Attorney General Eric Holder, and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were pushing the infamous “90-percent lie” in hopes of manufacturing public support for a ban on so-called “assault weapons.”

The” 90-percent lie” was an utterly false assertion that 90-percent of the firearms used by cartels in Mexico’s drug wars came from gun shops the United States.

The actual figure? Just eight percent of guns in cartel hands were traced to the United States.
