John DodsonThe federal agent who exposed the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal claims the FBI played a key role in events that resulted in U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry being murdered in 2010.

John Dodson, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, makes the explosive claim that the men who killed Terry worked for FBI operatives and were sent to the border to carry out a drug rip-off using intelligence from the Drug Enforcement Administration, according to The Arizona Republic.

“I don’t think the (FBI) assets were part of the rip-off crew,” Dodson told the Republic. “I think they were directing the rip crew.”

Dodson’s comments are in line with his recently released book, “The Unarmed Truth.” The Obama administration failed in its efforts to block the publication of the book, which focuses on his role as a whistle-blower in the Fast and Furious scandal.

The Arizona Republic further reported:

Terry belonged to an elite Border Patrol tactical team sent to a remote area known as Peck Canyon, roughly a dozen miles northwest of Nogales, where violence had escalated because criminal gangs were stealing narcotics from drug runners known as mules.

He was slain in a shootout with several bandits. Two assault-type rifles found at the scene were subsequently traced to Fast and Furious.

The report said Dodson uses “cautious” language in his book “to characterize his account of circumstances surrounding Terry’s death, saying the information is based on firsthand knowledge, personal opinion and press reports.”

The whistleblower charges:

…that the DEA had information about, and may have orchestrated, a large drug shipment through Peck Canyon that December night.

…that DEA agents shared that intelligence with FBI counterparts, who advised criminal informants from another cartel that the load would be “theirs for the taking.”
