Fast and Furious Scandal: New Details Emerge on How the U.S. Government Armed Mexican Drug Cartels
GERARDO REYES and SANTIAGO WILLS ^ | 9/30/12 | abc

Posted on 09/30/2012 5:15:51 PM PDT by Nachum

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.

And we need to be grateful for it this time, since the American media networks won’t do this reporting.

Most of Mexico that isn’t in civil war is *angry* about this.

I propose that at the end of their terms we hand over Obama and Holder to Mexico instead of trying to prosecute them ourselves. Besides, their jails are much more appropriate than ours.

I tried to put together a Spanish language attack ad on Fast and Furious a few months ago.

Those I was talking to said it was not necessary :)

RE: Once again, Mexicans doing the dirty jobs Americans won't do...

Excellent.

The RNC should "borrow" it and plaster that fact all over.. to counter the MSM flak chuckers soon-to-appear "report" that the Mexicans proved that it was all Bush's fault.

When you log into twitter on the left hand side you will see “Trends” that is what you what is trending on twitter(Meaning what people are talking the most about) it stopped trending right now, probably because liberals flooded twitter with useless garbage to get fast and furious off the trend list

CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson should pickup on the F&F scandal using the Univision News data uncovered. When the F&F scandal heated up earlier this year, I had a go around with our local newspaper editor about the F&F scandal. She thought it was no big deal. She compared it to Watergate and I reminded her that no one DIED in the third rate Watergate burglary. But, 2 U.S. agents, several hundred Mexican LEO’s and uncounted Mexican citizens had been murdered. I shamed her with, “That may not bother you, but it certainly does bother me — especially when we have the White House and 9 other executive branch departments and agencies directly or indirectly involved in FELONIES.” My “letter to the editor” was subsequently published.

“Most of Mexico that isn’t in civil war is *angry* about this.”

Can you blame them?

I tried to watch the Univision broadcast tonight, I heard it was going to be subtitled, but I guess it wasn’t. I recorded it and will have to try it again and see if I can get captioning up or something.

The visuals I saw were very powerful and I’m quite sure I would have seen them for years if Obama were a Republican.

While explaining to hubby why I was trying to watch Spanish language television it hit me that Obama has basically alienated ALL our close allies. Canada (keystone pipeline), Mexico (fast & furious), England (insult after insult), Israel (see England).

The man is a disaster, just a walking, talking, teleprompter reading disaster!

Mexicans dead by the hundreds and..
ABC flak chuckers emphasize how the Obama Administration was mistreated by Republicans playing politics.

In Washington, the Fast and Furious scandal became politicized, diverting the attention from the human cost in Mexico to political battles on Capitol Hill. In June, a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt ignored the real tragedy in Mexico . . . on September 25, Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley, the politicians behind the Fast and Furious congressional report released in July . . . .

The closed captions in English were on Closed Caption channel 3 or CC3. First two are Spanish for that program.

And no, I can’t blame them. The Obama administration committed what is considered by international law to be an act of war against Mexico. Major regional wars have started for less.

Thanks, i’ll give it a try tomorrow.

God bless Univision, they are the only folks really taking it to Obama, in his face!

I hope mucho spanish speaking voters watched this or will hear about it from their friends. I hope they realize a vote for Obama is not the way to go. Let me just say it that way.

Fast and Furious did no more to arm the drug cartels than the War On Drugs has done.
