The Untold Story Behind The "Fast and Furious" Scandal
abcnews.go.com ^ | 28 September, 2011 | Univision News

Posted on 09/29/2012 1:09:11 AM PDT by marktwain

Who are the human faces of the U.S. government's botched "Fast and Furious" gun-walking operation?

Often lost amid the rancor in Washington are the stories of dozens of people killed by guns that flowed south as part of the undercover operation, and later slipped out of view from U.S. officials. Univision's Investigative Unit (Univision Investiga) has identified massacres committed using guns from the ATF operation, including the killing of 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.

Additional guns, previously unreported by congressional investigators, found their way into the hands of drug traffickers across Latin America in countries such as, Honduras and Colombia, as well as the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision's findings "the holy grail" that Congress had been searching for.

Articles at the source persist in calling this a 'botched sting' and 'bungled operation'. It wasn't bungled, to wasn't botched, except to be uncovered.

There was never any means nor demonstrable attempt to interdict nor trace the firearms once they left the dealerships which had been bullied into cooperation.

Furthermore, I seriously doubt that we have seen much past the waterline of this iceberg, and the current kerfluffle, while it should be enough to hang a few treasonous folks at the DOJ, is probably being used as a smokescreen to cover the real extent of arms trafficking carried on by this administration.

.... Univision’s Investigative Unit (Univision Investiga)...

Knowing Univision....which is extremely Hispano-Racist/Pro-Amnesty/Anti-American....probably not going to get the accurate story. Somewhere “Gringo” will be blamed for everything...

“.... Univision’s Investigative Unit (Univision Investiga)...

The animals who rejoiced in the savage murdering of innocent Mexican citizens were Cartel. The animals who provided the means by which they could slaughter men, women, and children with reckless abandon were members of the Obama Administration. Blaming Gringo is the last thing we should worry about. The evil that prevails in the power-hungry arenas of drugs, money, politics, and fear has married the evil that is our country’s policy. I think it’s very interesting that Judge Roll was investigating Fast and Furious at the time of his very strange assassination. Living fifteen minutes from Jaurez I could taste the anguish felt by the families of these people who were being mowed down with assault weapons furnished to maniacs by our government. Will we ever know the true story? Will anyone ever pay? Will it be as simple as blaming the white guy when the head of Justice and the POTUS are black? Will the hate white campaign continue as gang wars break out in every city between Mexicans and Blacks? We’re in trouble, folks. We can’t put this horror back in its box. Maybe we can offer Starbucks gift certificates in exchange for turning in assault weapons.

“The animals who rejoiced in the savage murdering of innocent Mexican citizens were Cartel. The animals who provided the means by which they could slaughter men, women, and children with reckless abandon were members of the Obama Administration.”

The whole backstory in two sentences. Bears repeating again and again.

But in this case the “gringo” in charge is a “moreno”.
