    "(NBC News) Investigators are preparing to announce that the death of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie in Arizona earlier this week was the result of friendly fire...

    The conclusion is based on an analysis of the ballistics, the lack of evidence of other criminals in the area at the time, and other factors, the sources said.

    The FBI released a statement later on Friday confirming that preliminary evidence showed friendly fire was to blame in the shootings."



    I am quite aware that these types of tragic mistakes happen in both war and law enforcement. I would ask for a moment of prayer for the family that just lost a loved one.

    However, I have grown somewhat cynical about reports coming out of the current administration (well, any administration actually, but especially this one). When our ambassador was killed in Libya, there was confirmation in 24 hours that it was a planned terrorist attack, but the president spent a week claiming it was a spontaneous demonstration against a video that no one had ever heard of. Which, admittedly, probably sounded better than having to explain that his whole foreign policy program was falling apart.

    Now, if the Border Agent had been killed with, for example, a Fast & Furious weapon, then the administration certainly wouldn't want to admit that right before an election. But all this is frankly just based on my noticing that this seemed like suspiciously good timing for that announcement to come out.

    Am I just being paranoid? Could someone with law enforcement experience tell me if I'm reading too much into this? If the administration hadn't just been trying to deny that terrorists attacked our consulate in Libya, then I wouldn't be thinking things like this :whistling:

    Not according to a guy who was on scene - check out the coptalk thread.

    Thanks, I knew somebody here would be talking about it. I don't have any facts, just my BS alert going off.

    I hope the true facts come out. More specifically, I hope they come out, one way or the other, before the election.

    Think so - I haven't followed it as closely as I should. I do know that a GT member was on scene and actively involved in the incident, and has said as much as he is able. I'll take his word over ANY news media outlet, anytime.

    Yeah... I'll buy friendly fire. But I find it nearly impossible to believe they shot EACH OTHER.

    I don't trust anything the media or government say anymore. And I don't think you're paranoid.
