Obama Admin. Sees Border Patrol
Murders As 'Acceptable Risk'

Examiner.com
Documents recently uncovered from Border Patrol agents highlight the Obama administration’s failure to heed multiple warnings from Border Patrol, local law enforcement, activist groups and border region ranchers that restlessly warned government officials that proposed wilderness reserves would lead to national security breaches and murder.

“We now have further evidence that the Obama administration at every level thinks the border situation is entirely acceptable and they lack full border enforcement security within designated wilderness areas that risks our border patrol agents and law enforcement deputies safety,” said outspoken Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.

Emails, meetings and videotapes reveal the administration was aware of national security issues, agent safety issues, bounties placed on Border Patrol agents by drug cartels, and the trafficking of drugs and humans. The administration was told, they saw it and they acknowledged it, and yet, they moved forward. As a result of their “acceptable risk” policy, Border Patrol agents Brian Terry and Nicolas Ivie were murdered. Yesterday, Cochise County Sheriff spokesperson Carol Capas confirmed agent Ivie was murdered on federal land.

The emails, memo’s and white papers contained serious allegations that national security would be hampered in the wilderness areas along the southern border. There are supporting documents and news reports confirming drug cartels “bounty program” that incentivized smugglers to kill agents along the border.

Emails (FOIAs from NAFBPO), despite extensive government redacting, confirm the administration began talks regarding the expansion and creation of wilderness areas, these proposed new designations went through Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol, Department of Interior, Congress and Senate committees. All the agencies were advised of the national security implications and the emails predate Agent Terry’s December 2010 murder.

Email exchanges between agencies include Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner David Aguilar, Chief of U.S. Border Patrol, Michael Fisher, Congressman Udall, Senator Jeff Bingaman, Commissioner of CBP and former drug czar, Alan Bersin, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as well as the Chamber of Commerce.
