They wish Holder had Brian’s back the way he had others’.
The Family of Slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Issues Statement on the Resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder
Immediately after Brian Terry’s murder, Holder’s Justice Department inexplicably denied that ATF had ever “walked” guns despite the obvious testimony of ATF whistleblowers that were part of the operation. Moreover, Holder has continually failed to cooperate with Congress and has withheld records sought by investigators looking into Operation Fast and Furious. Holder’s resignation is welcomed by the Terry Family and should have occurred immediately after Brian Terry’s death and the revelation that the men that killed Brian were carrying weapons supplied to them by ATF. It is the hope of the Terry Family that Holder’s departure will lead to full disclosure of the thousands of documents still sought by investigators still looking into Operation Fast and Furious. It is also our hope that the next Attorney General will do a far better job at protecting the American public and guarding the many rights guaranteed in the Constitution.

Agent Brian Terry, a member of the U.S. Border Patrol’s elite tactical unit known as BORTAC, was on duty when he was shot to death while tracking members of a suspected drug cartel rip crew on December 14th, 2010 near Rio Rico, AZ. Two semi- automatic assault rifles similar to AK-47’s were found at the murder scene and ultimately traced to the botched gun trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious.
