PHOENIX (AP) - The parents of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent killed with a gun sold in the government's botched "Fast and Furious" gunrunning investigation aren't happy with a Justice Department Inspector General's report.
   
Agent Brian Terry's father calls the report a cover-up to keep Attorney General Eric Holder from being blamed.
   
Kent and Carolyn Terry of Jonesville, Mich., spoke with The Associated Press Thursday about the report that detailed who was responsible for allowing assault weapons to be smuggled into Mexico. Two guns were found at the scene of agent Brian Terry's death in southern Arizona in December 2010.
   
Carolyn Terry says the couple wants those responsible put in jail, not slapped on the wrist.
   
The report blamed failed strategies, errors in judgment and management failures but did not name Holder.
