Documentary filmmaker Fleming Fuller has created a short documentary that reenacts with gripping and vivid detail the events just before and after the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. The scene in which Terry is killed is part of a documentary being made called, “Fast and Furious: Under the Radar and Above the Law.”
The above scene, though a reenactment, portrays the murder of Terry with great attention to detail and gives an accurate depiction of events. It is moving and, I will admit, made my blood boil to know that this patriot was murdered protecting our borders, and the cowards and criminals in our own government that facilitated this bloodshed are not only walking free, but still collecting a paycheck (and receiving awards, apparently.)
The scene begins by discussing the location and type of duty Terry was called on to perform. The scene plays out like an action moving, though the realization that this really happened somewhat creates a more somber viewing experience.
Retired U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ron Colburn, a founding member of the elite unit to which Terry belonged, narrates the events and discusses the aftermath, relating that the weapons used by the Mexicans were AK47s that were traced back to Operation Fast and Furious.
In a matter-of-fact presentation, the small snippet of the yet-to-be-seen documentary pulls no punches as it expresses on screen,
“Fast and Furious was a government operation facilitating the illegal purchase of thousands of weapons that were allowed to flow to drug cartels in Mexico. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms justified it as a tool to identify and bring down the cartel kingpins by following the weapons to their final destination. Yet the ATF field agents were ordered not to track the guns or arrest the straw buyers and the program was kept secret from the government of Mexico. If this covert project was not to stop guns being smuggled into Mexico, what was the true purpose? There is a widespread belief that the actual intent was to place American guns at crime scenes in Mexico to justify highly restrictive new US gun laws. The murder of Brian Terry forced an abrupt end to the operation, but the guns continue to serve their deadly purpose. Two months after Terry’s death, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was gunned down in Mexico with these weapons as have over 300 Mexican citizens. Those responsible for this malfeasance must be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, irrespective of high office or position.”
Many of us have connected deeply with this outrageous betrayal, but many are still in the dark. Perhaps they have heard a snippet of information, but know no details. We must spread the word as much as possible and make sure Fast and Furious is as common a term as Watergate- and not a reference to a movie.
