The U.S. government admitted today in federal
court that the prosecution’s star witness in the criminal trial of Border Patrol
agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean – confessed drug dealer Osvaldo
Aldrete-Davila – lied under oath.
“He told some lies on the stand,” Mark
Stelmach, the assistant U.S. attorney representing prosecutor U.S. Attorney
Johnny Sutton said under questioning by a three-judge 5th Circuit U.S. Court of
Appeals panel in New Orleans.

Ramos and Compean are appealing prison
sentences of 11- and 12-years respectively for a 2005 incident in which they
fired on Aldrete-Davila as he fled back into Mexico after smuggling 750 pounds
of marijuana into the U.S. near Fabens, Texas.

“Today the justice system
worked the way it is supposed to,” Tara Setmayer, communications director for
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., told WND immediately following the hearing.
