The mother of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Has been talking on FaceBook and lashing out -- Eric Holder as the US attorney general testified on the -- gun running -- that ultimately cost her son.
His life here is part of her FaceBook message this is what Brian Terry's mom sat.
holder how come you never say my son's name you never have and actually tired of hearing.
You're double talk she says in answering questions.
What a joke you are you know my son was a real American a warrior.
And a hero who was also protecting powered politicians.
Like you very strong words from this is Terry lawmakers grilled Eric Holder yesterday they demanded to know why no one has been held accountable.
We find out -- not fired a single.
We find out.
Did you have not rebuked.
Any staff members -- -- even put a letter in people's personnel file saying that they they on their watch.
Acted to an agent was murders we'll have taken steps certainly with regard -- you told people that you're mad you're upset.
That to me is silly.
I'm not sure you understand how the Justice Department works I didn't express the fact that was man or that I thought it was silly I -- directive.
The city attorney general United States is that this policy this kind of technique.
Is inappropriate and should not be followed but that's not all that I've done I've -- personnel changes with regard to.
Leadership positions we move people around we've instituted a series.
Of policies now that I think are designed to make sure that that doesn't happen again.
Agent was murders and you're action is to move people around.
From his moments in yesterday's testimony joined now -- Byron York -- political correspondent at the Washington examiner at Fox News contributor.
-- where are we now you know with all this obviously -- Terry is outraged and she expressed her emotions about that who can blame -- Her FaceBook page but where does this really go from here now.
Well that was an extremely contentious hearing yesterday and we mean these two sides really do not like each other.
Where we are right now is Republicans are gonna continue to press for still more documents from the Justice Department and they've been angry ever since they found out that Eric Holder did not accurately tell them when he first found out about -- appears he had originally said he found out about it from media reports and then.
Because of documents turned over Republicans found out that it actually found out about it several months before -- so there's a certain there's a lack of trust there and that the issue now is.
The Republicans want documents from the Justice Department that were created after.
The fast and furious controversy began because they suspect that there's a cover up and that is what Justice Department is saying no we're not gonna turn those over so this fight is not gonna end any time since.
It will help holder in his own defense basically says all of the inspector general's looking and all that people haven't been fired.
Because that investigation is not done and as the congress and pointed out thirteen months later we're still working on his investigations -- looking for answers.
Oh that's the other part of this is just Republican anger over this because.
An agent Brian Terry was killed in this and obviously that.
That increases the -- -- level this and the acting director of ATF was reassigned.
The US attorney.
For Arizona did resign.
But it's true.
Eric Holder has not fired anybody has not disciplined anybody.
For what was system massive failure and a very dangerous operation.
You know -- I can't help but feel when you watch -- back and forth here that if it had been handled differently on the attorney general's part in terms of you know grieving the loss of this agent and and just demonstrating his desperation to get to the bottom of and to make sure that it never happened again.
The attitude seems to have a lot to do or something to do at least with the way all of this is perceived out there.
That could've brought the temperature down a little bit obviously there is politics at play in this in this really got to be a big deal after Republicans won control of the house and -- subpoena power and and the power to summon Eric Holder come testify.
But you're absolutely right about the tone of this it's it got really quite contentious on both sides at one point represented pro Labrador was questioning.
Holder and -- and will that may be the way things you do things in Idaho or wherever your from.
Labrador is a representative from Iowa there's Idaho's -- there's just a lot of contempt for both sides for each other there.
Aaron thank you this banking on the news world -- actually have a -- you know so.
