One of the five men accused in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death exposed a botched federal gun sting has been extradited to the United States.
The family of a Border Patrol agent who died in a 2010 firefight near the Arizona-Mexico border is appealing a ruling that dismissed federal employees from the family's lawsuit over the botched Fast and Furious gun-smuggling investigation.
A man convicted in the shooting death of a federal Border Patrol agent during a firefight that revealed the government's botched gun-smuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison.
A Mexican man will be sentenced in federal court Monday in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death revealed a botched law enforcement sting in which agents lost track of hundreds of guns sold to criminals.
Kent Terry, the brother of slain border agent Brian Terry, sent a scathing letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding to know why the United States has let years pass without holding anyone accountable for Operation Fast and Furious.
A firefight that killed a Border Patrol agent near the Arizona-Mexico border in 2010 erupted as armed men who had sneaked into the country to rob marijuana smugglers walked in a single-file line toward a group of agents, according an account given by prosecutors of the shooting that revealed the government's botched "Fast and Furious" gun-smuggling investigation.

Mexican police have arrested a third suspect in the December 2010 killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry, whose death drew light on Operation Fast and Furious, a botched plan by the U.S. government that was meant to track guns smuggled to Mexico.

Anyone who has spent time in Washington knows government runs on process. There is a procedure for everything, and this is especially true in federal law enforcement, where lives
In 1973, I chose Watergate for a grade-school news-clipping project. In 2012, a grade-school student choosing Fast and Furious would have hit a similar mother lode with a bulging notebook of clippings for what will soon have its very own "gate" moniker.
A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels.
Ever since the Department of Justice's gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious became public, the Obama administration's response has been slow and infuriating. Of particular concern is Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s lack of candor concerning what he knew and when he knew it.
On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenaed the Department of Justice. "Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged," committee chairman Darrell E. Issa said. "The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It's time we know the whole truth."
