Fairfax, VA –-(Ammoland.com)- Cam Edwards talks to Lana Domino, friend of the Brian Terry family, who released this statement:
“The Terry Family, like most of America, is sickened to read the latest revelations relating to ATF's error-plagued and misguided Fast and Furious Investigation.
It is beyond our comprehension that U.S. federal law enforcement agencies were not talking with one another. American citizens deserve better from their public servants; the FBI, DEA, ATF and U.S. Attorney personnel in Arizona should have been coordinating their investigative and prosecutorial efforts.
This coordination should have started and continued with basic information sharing and deconfliction. One can only imagine that if the FBI, DEA, and U.S. Attorney personnel had only shared their information with ATF agents that the Miramontes brothers were FBI informants than the entire Fast and Furious debacle could have been avoided.
With this single piece of information, ATF could have chosen not to proceed with Operation Fast and Furious which ultimately put almost 2,000 assault weapons into the hands of some of the most dangerous criminals in North America.
Had this simple piece of information been shared among the different federal law enforcement agencies in Arizona, some 200 Mexican citizens would not have had to lose their lives in needless violence and U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry would still be alive.”
