Remember Fast and Furious's Mexican victims

Monday, July 9, 2012

The American people finally have heard of Brian Terry. He is the best known victim of Fast and Furious, an Obama administration conventional weapons proliferation program. Between November 2009 and January 2011, Team Obama arranged for licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to straw buyers, who transferred them to known violent criminals in Mexico. Two of these firearms, AK 47s, were found near Rio Rico, Ariz., where suspected smugglers fatally shot Terry, a 40 year old former Marine, on December 15, 2010.
"I do not fear death," Terry once wrote. "I do fear the loss of my honor, and would rather die fighting than have it said I was without courage."
While Brian Terry is the most visible victim of this notorious policy, he is not its sole casualty.
