Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, a member of a Mexican cartel, was arrested during a US/Mexico joint operation. Osorio-Arellanes frequented the US border with Mexico in order to rob drug runners, when he encountered Agent Terry and killed him in a gunfight using an approved gun provided by Barack Obama and Eric Holder. The murder of Agent Terry led to the unmasking of the illicit operation that gave Mexican cartels thousands of guns, several of which have been tied to nearly one hundred deaths.
As Breitbart Texas has reported, Terry’s murder exposed the Obama administration’s gun-running operation, which soon became known as the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal.
More than 500 weapons seized by federal agents have been traced back to the Fast and Furious Operation, in which the Department of Justice allowed Mexican cartels to illegally purchase guns in the U.S. in order to move them into Mexico.
The weapons were supposed to be traced to high-ranking cartel figures, however, the DOJ lost track of thousands and bolstered the arsenals of criminal enterprises.
In December 2010, Terry was killed with a gun traced back to the Fast and Furious Operation, as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agent Jaime Zapata, who was killed in Mexico in February 2011.
Fast and Furious was one of the first of many Obama scandals that the mainstream press refuses to recognize. The mainstream press are no longer journalists, they are advocates. But you will be pleased to know that Eric Holder investigated himself and found that he was blameless.
It should be the hope of every American that the family of Agent Terry will finally get closure if not justice.
