Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Was Killed By... Mexican Nationals "Hunting" Border Patrol Agents?

Wow.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when it was reported that the indictment against one of Terry's alleged killers had been sealed?

Is this leaked information the reason it's being covered up?

Five illegal immigrants armed with at least two AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifles were hunting for U.S. Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole known as Mesquite Seep just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and one U.S. agent was killed, records show.

The original article doesn't say why they were "hunting" Border Patrol agents, but the area where Terry was murdered is a drug-smuggling corridor, so it might have been a case of turf-protection.

And they were armed with AK-47s, courtesy of the US Government.

The U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego, which is prosecuting the case, would confirm only that it was sealed. Also sealed was the judge’s reason for sealing the case.

Whoops! Terry was a Border Patrol agent, of course, not an ATF agent, as the headline first had it. Obviously, "ATF" was in my head, and then wound up in the headline.

Added: Commenters suggest re-emphasizing "armed with US-provided arms," which I actually emphasized in my Twitter post on this, but didn't in the blog post. Yes, that's important. I took that as assumed, but it's best to state it directly.

We armed the killers of Brian Terry. Why? They refuse to say.
