The U.S. government is fighting to keep details of how its own
federal gun agents let Mexican drug cartels buy rifles in Arizona
illegally out of an upcoming murder trial in which two men will be tried
for the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who died after
he ran into men carrying those same illegal guns.
In a court
filing Monday, prosecutors are trying to keep some details about the
guns found at the slain agent’s murder scene away from the jury.
