CBS -- Congress tells FBI: clarify evidence in Brian Terry murder.

I knew that they weren't going to take the "Third Gun" counteroffensive of DOJ and the FBI lying down. Link.

Today, members of Congress investigating the Fast and Furious "gunwalker" scandal asked the FBI to clear up questions about evidence at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Terry was gunned down in Arizona near the Mexican border Dec. 14, 2010. Two weapons recovered at the scene traced back to the ATF Fast and Furious operation in which agents were told to let thousands of weapons be sold to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels. The FBI has been investigating the murder for the past ten months.

In a lengthy letter directed to FBI Director Robert Mueller, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) pointed to inconsistencies in reports of how many weapons and suspects were involved, as well as their current whereabouts. The letter refers to evidence indicating there may have been five suspects in the group that shot Brian Terry, and as many as five rifles.

Sen. Grassley's staff raised the possibility of a "missing" third gun in his Feb. 16 letter to Attorney General Eric Holder. Last Sunday on CBS' Face the Nation, Rep. Issa stated that colleagues of deceased Agent Terry told his mother there was a third weapon, and that a federal agent had referred to a third weapon in secret recordings about the case.

The FBI has stated that it recovered two, and only two guns. However, neither was a conclusive match to the bullet that murdered Terry.

Thank you, again, for what you're doing. You really do make a difference. I may not be able to add more than myself to the III but I have been adding to the other % of supporters.

My biggest regret is that I was asleep for so many years. I will make up for that.

God bless you, Mike.

Of course there was no ballistic match with the two recovered AKs. Brian Terry was killed with an SKS that will never be recovered. ;^)

What are the odds that only two of five miscreants, perusing over the border in cartel land and getting into a gun fight with Border Patrol, were armed?

That neither of the two "recovered" firearms are a ballistics match pretty much nails down the fact that there had to be at least one more, if not more, firearm.

For those still trying to deflect and defend, it appears that they have indeed lost all ability to recognize when their ideology necessitates throwing out common sense reasoning in order to fabricate "explanations" that protect "The One" and his co-conspirators.

As an aside, don't you just love Biden's use of crime, rape and robbery, as a reason to pass a "jobs bill"? Biden made a case for CARRY, not for "jobs" legislation.
They are imploding under the weight of their own foolishness and lies.
