Another ATF lie or 'misstatement', this one on the death

of BP Agent Terry:
The claim by senior ATF officials that none of the weapons lost in the botched Fast and Furious sting operation were used in the shooting of a Border Patrol agent is not supported by FBI ballistics tests, according to a copy of the FBI report on the shooting.Link
Last week, spokesmen Scot Thomasson and Drew Wade of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told The Times that the FBI had assured them that neither of the two Fast and Furious weapons found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry's death were the ones that killed the agent.

"We're not aware of any forensic evidence that would link these guns to the homicide," they said.

A copy of the FBI report obtained by The Times' Washington bureau shows ballistics tests did not rule out the Fast and Furious guns.
Whole story at the link. Which ends with this demonstration of what bastards we're dealing with:
Then on Dec. 21, Newell emailed his boss and admitted that "guns purchased early on in the case couldn't have [been] stopped mainly because we weren't fully aware of all the players at that time and people buying multiple firearms in Arizona is a very common thing."

But Newell defended the operation. "I don't like the perception that we allowed guns to 'walk,'" he wrote.
Newell, you are a truly sorry piece of crap. You didn't just ALLOW guns to walk, you HELPED THEM GET ACROSS THE BORDER. Based on what we know, you WANTED them to get across the border, you bastard.

Yes. Newell didn't "allow the guns to 'walk'", he saw to it they got limosine service across the border.
