Spanish-language television network Univision plans to air a television special that it said reveals more violence than previously known, as well as the stories of how many more Operation Fast and Furious victims were killed, the network announced in a Friday release.
The consequences of the controversial Fast and Furious undercover operation put in place by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2009 have been deadlier than what has been made public to date, the network said. The exclusive, in-depth investigation by Univision News award-winning Investigative Unit Univision Investiga has found that the guns that crossed the border as part of Operation Fast and Furious caused dozens of deaths inside Mexico.
Among other groups of Fast and Furious victim stories Univision says it will tell in the special to air Sunday evening at 7 p.m., is one about how 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010″ were gunned down with weapons the Obama administration gave to drug cartel criminals through Fast and Furious.
Univision News Investigative Unit was also able to identify additional guns that escaped the control of ATF agents and were used in different types of crimes throughout Mexico, the network added. Furthermore, some of these guns none of which were reported by congressional investigators were put in the hands of drug traffickers in Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univisions findings the holy grail that Congress had been searching for.

Sounds like the last new network left in the Country
Is it possible that “Univision” has begun to see the real world and realize that it isn’t conservatives who are killing Hispanics throughout Mexico and the borderlands of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
It is partially the actions of the Obama regime, the Attorney General, the ATF, and ICE.
If this news story is an honest piece of journalism, then kudos to Univision for doing its job, reporting the news accurately and objectively.

MORE Univision info.
This looks like a gamechanger, folks.
Uhmm. I always believed guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Personal responsibility folks.
Holy crap. I wonder how much it's gonna cost taxpayers for Obama to buy back the Latino vote once they get the full impact of this little gem.
Got it set to record - 6:00 PM (Central) DirecTV channel 402
I even figured out how to change the CC to English with the help of Dallas59
Good for you! I wish I could get it, but looking forward to the aftermath if it is as good as they say.
If Latinos finally begin to understand that their lives meant absolutely NOTHING to this administration except to promote an agenda, we might see a shift and maybe even some real anger. Depends on how they report it.
Please excuse my ignorance on the matter, but is Univision a big deal to Latinos living here? Will it reach a large portion of the population or is it a low rating channel?
From the few news clips and the program that was on when I tuned in, it seems to be a rather high-budget and well done channel. Of course, I have no idea what anyone was saying, I'm basing my opinion on the fact is was in HD and the news sets looked very modern. (and not to mention that the news babes were good looking) :~)
If it hurts Barry, I’m all for it. Our MSM sure doesn’t report in an honest manner.
But it won’t surprise me at all if this is Mexico’s attempt to blame their ills on the US.
I hope someone reports back...I don’t have Univision.
I suspect half of the ratings come from male gringos having impure thoughts while watching the weather report.
LOL! - Thanks for the info
Correct. The problem is that Holder, the DoJ, & ATF put them directly into the hands of criminals. There was nothing “random” about it. If I understand correctly, even when the weapons were purchased at gun shops, it was pre-arranged, to some extent. The shop owners were instructed to sell the guns, under duress.
What they’re trying to establish is that the orders to put guns into the hands of (specifically) criminals/ drug cartels came from Holder/ the DoJ. The sensational violence that was *intended* to come from the operation would be the rationale to tighten gun control.
I posted a link to the online stream. Not sure if it was an official feed or one that is here today, gone tomorrow. Search my history and you should find it. I don’t think you can get english subtitles though.
“Operation Fast and Furious”....Holder’s gift to the world that just keeps on giving.
Huge deal. Big, big, big. They have a huge presence in the spanish-speaking community.
And should you wonder “Why Univision?” - I believe the answer is that they are not owned by one of the conglomerates that own most all other media in the US. Most of the private-sector media in the US is owned by only six companies.
And yes, their female staff are seriously easy on the eyes.
Their studios/production is run out of Florida, I believe.
I’m hoping that someone who knows spanish will post a live thread. That would be helpful.
Good thing they were all orphans with no relatives?
Might explain why Stinky only gives them plastic sporks to eat with in his presence!
