2 US Border agents shot, 1 killed, near major drug corridor in Arizona.

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area in south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said. The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010. The area is considered a remote part of the state and sources tell Fox News that the shooting occurred about 8 miles from the border.

Can we tone down the rhetoric? We don't really want to militarize the border....753 simineu

Guess they need to put up more of those DHS warning signs for Americans:"TRAVEL CAUTION Smuggling and Illegal Immigration May Be Encountered in this area"

That ought to keep the bad elements out! And to keep the good elements (i.e., our Border Patrol Agents) out we could add the tag line:"CAUTION Entering Into this Designated Area You May Be Killed With Weapons Provided To the Criminal Element By Our Department of Justice"

My condolences to the families of the wounded and lost. Yours upheld their oath and, honorably, paid the price.

But, as surely as there's a "trickle down" theory, there's also a "geyser up" one spouting responsibility for yet another family's loss thanks to bureaucratic inefficiency and political grandstanding. Its up to us to command and direct this geyser to flush out the stench and corruption pervading okur government. >Jeff
