The brother of the Border Patrol agent who died during a gunfight with smugglers armed with weapons that were part of the botched Fast and Furious “gun-walking” operation has written a scathing letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding to know when someone will answer for Brian Terry’s blood.

“The White House has been complicit in this effort to hide the truth by making executive privilege claims that have no merit, which is why today’s action is necessary,” the Ohio Republican said, adding that a bipartisan vote by the House to hold Mr. Holder in contempt “made clear that the Obama administration owes the Terry family and the American people the truth.”…
