Daily Caller ^ | 10/2/2012 | Matthew Boyle

When Mexican authorities took Juarez drug cartel carnage king Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez — better known as “El Diego” — into custody, he had weapons from Operation Fast and Furious on his person, the English-language transcript of the Spanish-language television network Univision’s special investigation into the scandal shows.

“According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported.

“When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in the summer of 2011, he was found with weapons that the American government had allowed to enter Mexico,” the anchor added.

It sounded like weapons from fast and furious were used to capture this puke. Their headline writers are every bit as stupid as ours!

The Drug Cartels are so powerful and have so many people in their pocket...and are aided by some of our agencies - I have to wonder if a drug cartel or CIA (or another agency) is aiding Univision with this story.

It sounds crazy but this sudden influx of coverage comes out of nowhere.

Or maybe I just haven’t been paying attention to Univision.

Obama has succeeded in locking this scandal Fast & Furious up tighter than a big bolt safe to protect himself and Eric Holder.....but as the man says, "drip, drip, drip"....

It is more than obvious if Obama were white but still a Socialist, he would be impeached.

Remember when the AMERICAN MEDIA were “watchdogs”? In the time of Obamugabe, they are LAPdogs.

Are you listening to Rush? He has covered the Univision special several times today.

He mentioned it being on YouTube. Have you seen the full version?

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

Mitt Romney: Wrap this around Obama’s neck tomorrow night, or just quit the race. If you can’t gin up some outrage over 2 murdered U.S. agents (not to mention a possible 3rd this morning, and 300 dead Mexicans), then you don’t deserve to represent us.
