Univision strikes again with Fast and Furious facts

 Do you think Mexicans appreciate Obama arming the very drug lords who murder their families and friends?

Following the release of the Justice Department's Inspector General's report on the failed ATF gunwalking program known as "Fast and Furious", the Obama administration response to GOP calls for Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation was to call off anymore "witch hunts." One top DOJ official resigned while another announced his retirement as a result of the IG report. AG Holder was not ultimately held responsible in the IG's report.

However, the Justice Department may not be breathing too easily just yet.l On Sunday evening the spanish network Univision aired programming that investigated the deaths that occurred south of the U.S. border as a result of fast and furious weapons which got into the hands of drug cartel members. According to an ABC News/ Univision report:

On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.

Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers. Three of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), according to a Mexican army document obtained exclusively by Univision News.

Univision News identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.

Just started reading about this. The coverups of the Obama admin are a disgrace.

The Fast and Furious story broke a few years ago and now it's just gaining steam.  Sad really.  Cheryl Atkinson (CBS)  reported the story years ago and deserves a Pultizer Prize.  I guess CBS didn't want to push the story as far as they should have.

So, Univision is telling more of the real story.  Cool!!!!!!

And why does Eric Holder still have a job?  This keeps stinking more and more.  It's not all the program, but just the whole covering up of it that should get him fired.
