The 1st Annual Brian Terry Foundation Benefit Dinner will be held September 17th, 2012. It’s a formal event requiring “cocktail attire” at a posh resort in Tucson. The Foundation was launched by Terry’s parents, as they await answers to the facts surrounding the death of their son.
Many notables are on the “honorary” host committee and serving as event co-chairs. The Master of Ceremonies is William La Jeunesse, a one time local AZ investigative reporter, now with Fox News. There will be an award presentation and special guest: Michael J. Fisher, U.S. Border Patrol Chief. At first blush it looks like an evening to calendar, since we all want to honor the life of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — killed in the Arizona desert by Mexican drug cartel gangsters, carrying AK-47s provided to them by the Obama Justice Department through Operation Fast and Furious
A closer look raises too many questions to process. Serving as “honorary hosts” are AZ Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl. How interesting that they are now positioning themselves on the right side of this issue as they do their best to re-write the history of the tragedy that needlessly took Brian Terry’s life.
Both McCain and Kyl voted in support of the confirmation of Eric Holder, Obama’s hand-picked selectee for U.S. Attorney General. The corrupt Eric Holder has blood on his hands in the wretched Fast and Furious gun running scandal and obstructive cover-up.
The McCain/Kyl duo also inexplicably supported the nomination of radical liberal Janet Napolitano for Secretary of Homeland Security. It’s not that they were unfamiliar with her leftist eccentricities and closeness to Barack Obama, since she had been a calamitous Arizona governor. Napolitano’s reckless laxity in regard to enforcement is legendary. Although she is loathe to address the criminality on our southern border, she issued a report warning of returning military vets as “right wing extremist” national security threats. Both she and Holder bear responsibility for the events that led to countless deaths on the Arizona border.
The litany of strange bedfellows continues. Democrat U. S. Reps. Raul Grijalva and Ed Pastor are vocal open border proponents. Their new Dem seatmate U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, is the honorary chairman, who can use this opportunity to show concern on border issues he cares not a whit about. He co-chairs with Republican U.S. Rep Darrell Issa, whose House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold AG Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents subpoenaed in the Fast and Furious investigation.
And McCain and Kyl? The “Honorary Hosts” have never been held accountable for any policy decisions that put these colluders in place and set the disastrous events in motion.
Their rhetoric only toughens as campaigns are on the horizon. Otherwise, it’s business as usual, with the usual suspects.
