Operation Fast & Furious, the U.S. government’s to run guns to Mexican drug cartels, has a major new development. According to ATF whistleblower John Dodson, the FBI was involved in the drug snatch operation that led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
The Arizona Republic had a report on Dodson’s revelations, which is catalogued in a new book:
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.”
