Book claims feds had ties to killers of Ariz. border agent

The Republic | azcentral.com Thu Dec 26, 2013 7:33 AM

A federal agent who exposed the Justice Department’s flawed gun-trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious says the FBI played a key role in events leading to the 2010 murder near Nogales, Ariz., of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

John Dodson, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, contends that the bandits who killed Terry were working for FBI operatives and were sent to the border to do a drug rip-off using intelligence from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

“I don’t think the (FBI) assets were part of the rip-off crew,” Dodson said. “I think they were directing the rip crew.”

Dodson’s comments to The Arizona Republic amplify assertions he made in his recently released book, “The Unarmed Truth,” about his role as a whistle-blower in the Fast and Furious debacle.

Terry belonged to an elite Border Patrol tactical team sent to a remote area known as Peck Canyon, roughly a dozen miles northwest of Nogales, where violence had escalated because criminal gangs were stealing narcotics from drug runners known as mules. He was slain in a shootout with several bandits. Two assault-type rifles found at the scene were subsequently traced to Fast and Furious.

The operation, based in Phoenix, was launched in 2009 to identify and prosecute drug lords, but instead allowed guns to be “walked” into the hands of Mexican criminals. ATF agents encouraged licensed firearms dealers in Arizona to sell more than 2,000 weapons to known “straw buyers” who were working for cartels. Instead of arresting suspects immediately, surveillance agents took notes and let them disappear with the guns.

After the Terry slaying and an attempted cover-up within the Justice Department, Dodson provided evidence and testimony to Congress. His revelations, later verified by an Office of the Inspector General’s report, ignited a national scandal over Fast and Furious that resulted in a congressional contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder and the replacement of top ATF and Justice Department officials.

In his book, Dodson uses cautious language to characterize his account of circumstances surrounding Terry’s death, saying the information is based on firsthand knowledge, personal opinion and press reports. He asserts that the DEA had information about, and may have orchestrated, a large drug shipment through Peck Canyon that December night. He alleges that DEA agents shared that intelligence with FBI counterparts, who advised criminal informants from another cartel that the load would be “theirs for the taking.”

“Stealing such a shipment would increase the clout of the FBI informants in the cartel organization they had penetrated,” Dodson wrote, “and thus lead to better intel for them in the future.”

Jer, for your information, the Chief Justice can't influence an impeachment trial. The chief Justice is there to keep rules of order. He has no say in what charges are brought, what witnesses are called, what evidence is admitted, or what the verdict should be. He can't overturn a verdict in any manner.

The problem lies with a craven GOP elite who won't impeach Obama or Holder because of the Democrat Senators who refused to convict Clinton, and said they wouldn't going into the trial. Yet for evidence to prosperity they should impeach if only to say we have lost the rule of  Constitutional Law.

Those who read the constitution would know all of this.

As for your four years of hell, thanks for your service. But please keep in mind you're not the only one who has served and who opposes this tyrant Mr.(intentional) Obama.

Also keep in mind many of us knew what a fraud Obama was and about his background and associations with atheists, Muslims, socialists, communists, domestic terrorists, homosexuals in 2008 and didn't vote for him and even spoke out against him. Were we "WEAK-MINDED COWARDS and LAZY STUPID FOOLS" just because we didn't defeat him?

            WE NEED TO KEEP THIS IN THE SPOTLIGHT FOR 2014 , AS WELL AS BENGHAZI , THE IRS POLITICAL WITCH HUNTS AND HARASSMENT AND BLOCKAGES OF CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATIONS , THE USE OF THE EPA TO WRECK THE ECONOMY EVEN AS THEY PRETENDED THEY TRYING TO HELP IT BY GIVING BILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS TO THE LIKE'S OF GENERAL MOTORS AND GENERAL ELECTRIC AND WALL STREET , ALL THE INJUSTICES DONE UNDER HOLDER AT THE " JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ' , GOING AROUND CONGRESS AND IGNORING THE CONSTITUTION WHEN GET THINGS DONE LEGALLY , APPOINTING JUDGES THAT ARE PROGRESSIVES ( COMMUNISTS ) .

MESSAGE TO CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN:



Hello, I am an angry voter! Before it is too late I feel the need to be the whistleblower! I am petitioning you to do several things:

•​Audit the Fed to enforce transparency and to stop printing money out of thin air! (I support Senator Rand Paul's positions). The Federal Reserve’s actions creates cycles of economic boom followed by economic destruction. Nowhere in human history has an endless printing of a nation’s currency produced a positive final result. “Quantitative Easing” 1,2,3,4 creates bubbles in the stock market, such as it currently lifting the Dow above 16000 before it severely crashes. America has an illusion of economy recovery because of the actions of the Federal Reserve - not a real recovery. Meanwhile, our elected officials point to the stock market and claim credit for “success”- it is a lie! Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital is correct: http://www.europac.net/commentaries/bens_rocket_nowhere . The federal reserve is nothing but a Ponzi scheme! We *have been* the world’s reserve currency of choice since the end of WWII, however, the federal reserve's reckless policy of financial folly has resulted in other nations moving to unseat, undermine, undercut the middleman(the U.S. dollar) by making direct agreements with nations other than the U.S.A. to eliminate the need for our currency for trade(i.e. B.R.I.C. nations. Brazil, Russia, India, China). This can be appropriately labeled as currency wars. America’s debt is 17 trillion dollars and exploding. America’s adversaries do not need to defeat us militarily, they are waiting for us to go bankrupt! As soon as the U.S. dollar is dethroned as the world’s reserve currency by a new world order, expect the value of the American dollar to crash, along with the stock market and pensioner’s 401k’s – expect the next great depression and hyperinflation! (history’s examples: Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe). Source http://www.businessinsider.com/worst-hyperinflation-episodes-in-his... . History such as the great depression eventually repeats itself, especially when we do not learn from our mistakes! Americans will need a wheelbarrow of cash to buy a loaf of bread! –AUDIT THE FED!!!

•​Hold the democrat liars who sold Obamacare to the American people accountable -including the socialist, marxist, communist, fascist, "Saul Alinsky", crises creator-("never let a crises go to waste"), "boil the frog slowly"-(the American people that is!), "make it hurt"-(closing the veteran's WWII memorial while Pelosi stages an illegal immigrant rally on the mall during the shutdown on the same day!), federal deficit ballooner, phony president and his administration (what the president says and does do not match!!). - I still remember the ties Obama had to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers!

•​Enforce Congress and the President to live by the same laws you impose on the American people (i.e. Obamacare).

•​Impeach the president, uphold and defend the constitution and the bill of rights as it was originally written (impeaching the president and upholding defending the constitution/bill of rights are related!).

•​Call a Constitution Article V Convention of States for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government! WWW.CONVENTIONOFSTATES.COM

•​Reign in the executive branch overreach of authority and privilege! He has unconstitutionally legislated by executive order! What is the president going to do next week, month or year?? - Create and incite a national crisis as an excuse to declare martial law so he can crown himself a dictator?? What about about Obama creating the crisis of bankrupting this nation by deliberately doubling the national deficit during his presidency?! - An insidiously subversive, “trojan horse” president, politically funded by the anti-american billionaire George Soros, a known communist, socialist, currency manipulator! - Most of the democratic party is bought and paid for! http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1310PSIEANEW/LPSIPC06/?h=true - For the preservation of American Freedoms and the American way of life IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT NOW!!!!

•​Hold the failures of the Bengazi scandal accountable (especially the president and Hillary Clinton).

•​Hold the NSA domestic spying on American citizens without probable cause scandal accountable (4th amendment violation).

•​Impeach Eric Holder for the Fast and Furious scandal.

• Hold the parties responsible for the IRS targeting of political opposition groups/persons

•​Oppose Amnesty for illegals (because they should not be rewarded for sneaking across our porous border) to prevent them from becoming 12 million newly minted-low information-bought and paid for entitlement-welfare-burden on the U.S taxpayer-bankrupt America democratic voters!!!

•​Oppose the president's Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (since nobody clearly knows what is in it like Obamacare and I fear the president is selling America's sovereignty "down the river".

•​Oppose the sneaky U.N. Small Arms Treaty or any other future U.N. infringement on American sovereignty - In fact, kick the anti-American, vision of one world government U.N. out of the U.S.A.!! U.N.’s Agenda 21 is evil!

• Why has the DHS bought 1.6 billion hollow point bullets? What are they preparing for? Why has the Obama administration heavily militarized the DHS and our local police departments? Per the Geneva conventions, hollow points are illegal to use in wars between nations. The DHS must be preparing to use them against the American people! What is worse is American taxpayer dollars were use to buy these bullets! I think it is because they are the first to know just how serious America’s impending bankruptcy is and hiding it from the public! I am demanding the demilitarization of the "department of homeland security"!! Obama's communist domestic army! Representative Sheila Jackson Lee slipped when she suggested the words “martial law” during the federal government shutdown – If you look at her contact info on the www.house.gov website, it shows her committee assignment as “Homeland Security Judiciary” (not a coincidence)! - "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny! When the government fears the people, there is liberty!" - Thomas Jefferson

•​Increase sanctions on Iran to end their nuclear program, otherwise you will enable war to break out in the middle-east while betraying Israel.

This is my protest!! I believe we are in danger of losing our Constitutional Republic! Help me save it!

I am risking unjust reprisal to speak out, yet the consequences of remaining silent are far worse for this nation!

Just say NO to the sell-out RINO’s – (Senator Mitch McConnell, this includes you!!)

Senator Harry Reid, you have always been a sell-out, or you are a political coward, and an accomplice to the Obama administration corruption! I am calling you out on it! - “Those who will sacrifice liberty for temporary security, deserve neither, and will lose both” - Benjamin Franklin

I am an anti-progressive(democrat and republican alike), anti-liberal, anti-elitist-condescending statist-("trust us because we know what is best for you better than you do and the American people are too stupid to make wise choices for themselves") - so for example, we will impose elitist, “genius” Obamacare on the American people whether they want it or not!

I am a pro-constitution, bill of rights, founding father's principles, limited government, libertarian supporter, Mark Levin's book - "The Liberty Amendments" admirer, Constitution's Article V convention of state's advocate.

I’m sending a copy of this message to your fellow congressmen and news media outlets across the country, including some in your state! (I treasure the bill of rights, do you??)

This WH is the most ruthless bunch of thugs this country has ever seen.   Their corruption goes into every agency of our gov't.   These people were all funded by the billions of Geo Soros.  Bought and paid for.    He has funded  this whole mess.   Some years ago in an interview he was asked about what was the happiest memory of his childhood... during  WW2.   His answer was when he "saved" his Jewish neighbors by telling them safety  was a certain place.   When they arrived they found Nazi SS troops and trucks there to haul them to certain death.   This is what Soros plans for this country.  He has spent his $$$$ well buying these corrupt Dems and this WH.

Good points. What we now have is an old style Mayor Daley Chicago Mob Democrat Party Political Machine now in control of the central, as opposed to a true federal, government. 

By the way Soro's Jewish neighbors were more than that. He's a Jew himself who has no regrets about selling his fellow Jews out to the Nazis.

Oh the webs we weave...Semper Fi

Our own FBI - DEA & ATF turned into criminal organizations by the evil law breaker Osama himself. Now we learn that the homeland security department is smuggling in kids to their illegal parents. Two of our brave agents have been killed. Fear not America - congress has responded to this wave of criminal behavior. They have issued a contempt citation for the justice department. WOW! Is that an appropriate solution for two dead men or what? A contempt citation has no effect on the justice department in any way. IT just simply says - we do not like what you did. You run a single gun across the border like the marine who wanted to go hunting & you get a jail sentence. You smuggle illegal kids into this country & you go to jail. But someone like holder gets a letter that says we do not like what you did. It proves we can not look to congress for help ever again. They are part of the problem. Please America wake up. The communists democrats & their RINO lackeys have taken control of our country to our own detriment & destruction. Please actively recruit tea party candidates to run against these vile democrats & RINO's.

Just yet another bungled case of your government in action!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
