T.J. Bonner (image size corresponds to his actual presence in the search for the truth in the death of CBP Agent Brian Terry).
David Codrea comments on my post of yesterday:
Rank and file Border Patrol agents must understand that unless and until all “Project Gunwalker” allegations and supporting evidence are explored in full, including what role top officials in ATF and the Justice Department have played, they will continue to face additional unnecessary risks in an already dangerous job. And they will continue to perform it knowing that should tragedy befall them, the primary motivation of those who order them into harm’s way will not be, in Senator Grassley’s words, to “come clean.”
What type of management expects people to risk their lives under such conditions? What kind of representative would not make it a priority to immediately rectify things to protect those he has been tasked--and trusted--to serve?
We make people leaders for a reason: we expect them to lead. The best way to encourage Mr. Bonner to direct his union’s substantial influence toward determining the truth is for its members to let him know--in no uncertain terms-- that they expect it of him.
