ICE agent Jaime Zapata was murdered in an ambush in Mexico in Feb. 2011. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed in in Dec. 2010. In both cases, the murder weapons or weapons found nearby were allowed to be smuggled into Mexico by ATF. Attorney General Holder is still stonewalling on releasing subpoeaned information.
Two weapons used in Agent Zapata’s murder in Mexico had been trafficked by suspects in two other ATF cases. Each time, ATF documented criminal acts by the suspects but did not immediately move to arrest them.
At some point one needs to ask, was this sheer stupidity on ATF’s part or was corruption involved? And how many others are dead because of ATF’s apparent criminal irresponsibility.
