#JayCarneyin4Words: Press secretary forgets Brian Terry’s name


If you take Fast and Furious seriously, you should know about Brian Terry, the U.S. Border Patrol agent killed in the line of duty as a result of the Obama administration’s gunrunning operation.  But earlier today at a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney appeared to forget Terry’s name when ABC reporter Jake Tapper asked about the Terry family’s statement regarding President Obama invoking executive privilege.


This just shows how little the White House cares about the Fast and Furious scandal and getting justice for Brian Terry.

In a similar vein to yesterday’s Fast and Furious hashtags #EricHolderInThreeWords and #DarrellIssaInThreeWords, #JayCarneyin4Words began:
