In March, 2009, Reuters said Sec. of State Hillary Clinton told media in Mexico City, “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians.” She also said Americans’ “insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade.”
Clinton’s words proved prophetic when US Border Patrol agent Brian A. Terry was killed in December, 2010. Clinton has said nothing more since information about Fast and Furious broke. The US Report was one of the only independent blogs to write about Agent Terry's death when it occurred. Legacy media barely gave his killing a nod until Issa's investigation began months later.
