Facts do not support official story in Border Patrol agent's killing

alturas de vértigo
On Wednesday, the Pima County Medical Examiner's office released the autopsy report for U.S. Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie, who was killed last month near Naco, Arizona.

In the report, Pima County Forensic Pathologist Cynthia Porterfield stated that Ivie died from "a penetrating gunshot wound of the head," and that a "small caliber copper jacketed projectile" was recovered from his brain.

On October 2, Ivie, was killed and another agent was wounded in what the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) claims to have been a 'friendly-fire' incident.

Of course, Border Patrol agents carry a combination of 40 caliber semi-automatic handguns, 12-gage shotguns or AR-15 rifles, not "small caliber" weapons.

The agents were working about 8 miles from the U.S./Mexican border in an area known to be heavily used by smugglers. They, along with another female agent, were responding to a tripped ground sensor, and in the darkness, opened fire on one another, according to the DHS.

However, last week, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office released a report which claimed the agnets were actually in contact with one another before the shooting took place.

The uninjured female agent told sheriff's investigators that she saw Ivie "signaling them with his flashlight," as the agents approached each other.

The agent also stated that they were in radio contact with Ivie, who was patrolling on his own.

As she and the other agent proceeded, gunfire suddenly erupted.

The report states: "She thought she observed three to four people moving in the area, but she could not describe them...She also mentioned hearing whispering. She could not say if it was in English or Spanish."

Initially, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano publicly stated that the agents had come "under fire from an unknown assailant," but that story quickly changed and it was claimed that the agents accidentally shot one another in the darkness.

Also, in an October 6 article, the Los Angeles Times reported:

    Gun-trace documents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives obtained by The Times show that a high-powered rifle and a handgun were found near the shooting scene, though it was not clear whether they were connected to the incident.

    A .223 Bushmaster rifle, seized on Wednesday, was “recovered in Mexico in the vicinity where Border Patrol agent was murdered,” according to one of the documents. It says the weapon was purchased in the United States but does not specify where.

    A .38-caliber Titan Tiger revolver was recovered separately Tuesday in Mexico, also near the Naco area, a second document says. That trace record included this alert: “Urgent High Profile Border Agent Shot.”

    The record says the weapon was originally purchased in February 2009 from the Frontier Gun Shop in Tucson.

It is not yet known if these weapons are connected to the Obama administration's infamous gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious.

Additionally, the day after Agent Ivie was killed, Reuters reported that two suspects "were arrested in a Mexican military operation in the city of Agua Prieta, in Mexico's northern Sonora state, a few miles (km) from the spot where Nicholas Ivie, 30, was shot dead, a Mexican Army officer."

So, just as is the case in both the Fast and Furious scandal and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, the facts just seem to jibe with the Obama administration's official story.

Are we looking at yet, another cover-up?

The AR-15 and variants are "light rifles". ( Contrary to what the ignorant masses say and think the AR-15 rifle and variants are not "assault rifles" or to use the ultra meaningless cliché used by those who want to disarm us, "assault type" rifles. )

The AR-15 bullet diameter is .224 caliber. The cartridge is known as .223 remington or 5.56 NATO. In summary, the .223 remington is a small caliber bullet because it is a .22 caliber bullet.
