Welcome back everyone attorney general Eric Holder testifying yesterday on the botched gun walking operation fast and furious.
He says -- controversial remarks about slain Border Patrol agents Brian Terry.
It is not fair however to assume that.
The mistakes that happen in fast and furious directly led to the death of agent Terry.
Again -- feelings of sympathy.
And regret go out to be the -- family.
-- domino was a good friend of agent Brian Terry and she's like us this morning good morning team.
Good morning to you.
I'd -- to -- the opportunity just for a moment to remember Brian Terry for the members of our audience today who maybe don't know that much about him.
-- -- he served as a a marine when he was eighteen.
He served as a police officer.
And lastly he he served as a -- tech Border Patrol agent.
So his whole life was dedicated to his country.
As far as he has regret and sympathies.
I think are very insincere.
He never contact and the family he could have written a letter he never wrote a letter.
You could attended a memorial others play memorial services there was one in Tucson Arizona.
-- -- funeral in Michigan.
He didn't attend those either.
It sounded yesterday as if he didn't really even want to admit that fast and furious he botched gun situation.
Had anything to do.
With border agent Terry's death was -- the impression you -- That's the impression I -- he says his regrets are.
The tactics of the program.
He still has not taken accountability for the program.
Should have never been created.
He thinks the program -- there -- just tactical errors in the program in the program was fine.
Guns walking with no tracking devices.
Two dead agents 200 plus -- citizens of Mexico is is okay it's just a few years.
And -- it's just it's just you can't even imagine.
Guns being locked dead agents and it being okay and saying well -- collateral damage and it's just a few years.
Of course Brian Terry was shot in December of 2010 and then two of the guns found at the scene were part of this whole past -- operation.
The other thing that struck me about the testimony yesterday it mono was and -- was senator John Cornyn when he asked.
Attorney general holder whether or not he wanted to use that moment in time to apologize to -- family.
And and he didn't do it.
He said he regretted it and that he gave condolences to the family but he did not say the word.
-- this personal for me.
Eric Holder is not accepting any type of accountability and he doesn't want to admit that the program was wrong.
He doesn't want to admit that the -- -- furious guns found at the scene of his murder where the guns that actually for the reason why he was killed in what he was killed by.
And he is still saying to focus on don't lose sight in focus on the focal point.
We have a gun problem and we need it in implement.
Rather than focusing that you have a dead federal agents.
So the focal point to him is still about gun control in implementing new laws.
Well if guns weren't blocking we wouldn't have as big of a problem what week.
