On the night of Dec. 14, 2010, Agent Brian Terry of the U.S. Border Patrol was conducting an operation in the desert near Nogales, Ariz. with three members of his team when they came upon a group of five suspected illegal aliens armed with AK 47 variants. Tragically, in the resulting firefight, Terry was fatally wounded. As he lay there bleeding out in the cold winter air of the high desert, Brian Terry looked at his friend and fellow agent and confided, "I can't feel my legs." Those were the last words he uttered. Two of the three rifles recovered from the encounter were traced to an ill conceived operation conducted by the U.S. Justice Department known as Fast and Furious. The Justice Department, with support from President Barack Obama, has consistently tried to cover up the details of Fast and Furious in a stark divergence from the clear and transparent government on which the president campaigned.
