Bastards.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by Mexican nationals who crossed the US border with Mexico with the intention of committing a crime (in this case, ripping off a drug/money shipment from other criminals).  Agent Terry was killed with guns given to those criminals by the ATF.  That's bad enough, but it gets worse.

Both the FBI and the DEA were aware of the planned rip.  In fact, the FBI is responsible for providing those involved, via a confidential informant, with the information about the shipment.

As another blogger is fond of saying, if you're not angry it's because you're not paying attention.

Beyond belief (almost), but that DOES make the reason the administration is sealing the records make more sense...

It's the type of stuff you expect to you read in a poorly written novel you bought from Paladin Press, that's the really scary part for me.
