new report claims previously unreported weapons can be linked to the botched Operation "Fast and the Furious," and that the U.S. supplied some of the weapons used in a massacre of young men in Mexico in 2009.

The report by Spanish-language news network Univision aired on the channel Sunday night in Spanish and a partial transcript was obtained by Fox News.

In the report, Univision identifies 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 other actions by Mexican hit men and drug cartels.

The report also reveals that the Obama administration may have indirectly played a role in the 2009 massacre, where 18 young men were killed at a rehabilitation center in the violent border city of Ciudad Juarez. The massacre was reportedly ordered and carried out by Mexican hit men.

Obama doesn't care. He knows he can run out the clock on Fast and Furious and Behghazi until after November 7th.

And his adoring fanboys and fangirls at ABCNNBCBS will help their Dear Leader in the coverup.

So far, I am not impressed with the coverage of Unvision’s report. This should be viral by now. The silence is deafening.

Last night I was apoplectic because I couldn’t get the Univision report on TV or find a livestream anywhere. Today it seems as if everyone has glommed on to this one story and is letting the rest fall by the wayside. Now I am not only apoplectic, I am stunned by the seeming indifference to these murders of innocent people. Where is the outrage??? Am I still living in America? Have we lost our conscience completely? Are the good and decent people so beaten down that they have become numb and paralyzed with frustration and fear? What the hell is happening to us???

IMHO the GOP is holding this back for impeachment if 0 does win.

You may be right, but it may just be that we're suffering from the "But I don't know anyone who voted for Nixon" syndrome.

This was still a spanish language report on a spanish language network for a pan-American spanish speaking audience.

You and I only know anything about it through the wonder of subtitles.

How many other stories has Univision reported on that you've heard talked about among your circle of friends, much less US MSMers who are actively avoiding it in the first place?

Maybe ask around at restaurants and auto shops what the guys know now about "Rapido y Furioso" now?

OTOH, Univision viewers tune in for boobs and game shows, not hard hitting political scandals.

Why hold back? Impeachment (and removal, which did not happen with Clinton) only affects the one impeached. O wins, GOP impeaches (to vortec94’s point: you’re kidding, right?), removing O and replacing him with...Biden? yeah, that’s a useful strategy - not.
