Univision News' Fast and Furious Investigation Prompts Congressional Inquiry
ABC News ^ | 10/4/2012 | SANTIAGO WILLS and GERARDO REYES

On Tuesday, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) pressed the Department of Justice to provide information about 57 Fast and Furious weapons found at Mexican crime scenes, which were first exposed by a Univision News special investigation on September 30.

In a letter obtained by Univision News and sent to Attorney General Eric Holder, Issa and Grassley inquired about the previously unreported Fast and Furious guns that were linked to violent crimes and featured in the Univision News report. The letter pays special attention to three firearms connected to an ATF gun-tracing operation that were used in a massacre of 15 teenagers in Villas de Salvarcar.

"The three Fast and Furious weapons allegedly used in the [Villas de Salvarcar] attack were not referenced either in your September 9, 2011 or your June 7, 2012 letters responding to our requests for information on recoveries, and particular recoveries associated with violent crimes," Darrell and Issa write to Holder.

The letter includes ten questions about this particular crime and about how Operation Fast and Furious was related to violent crimes in Mexico. The answers to those questions are expected "by no later than October 14, 2012."

On September 30, Univision News aired a special edition of "Aquí y Ahora" (Here and Now), which focused on the consequences of the ATF's gun-walking operations outside the United States, and more specifically on the repercussions across the Mexican border.

"Our relationship with Mexico is deep," Issa told Univision News in an interview for last Sunday's show. "It's strong and it's essential. I can understand why the Mexican government has been reserved publically. But I believe privately it has hurt our relationship. It has created a lack of trust."

NOT an excerpt. Didn’t realize I had hit the excerpt checkbox.

The only paper articles are printed by BRITISH papers, the only broadcasts aired by MEXICAN networks.

Appropriate, in a really SICK way...

Univision News' Fast and Furious Investigation Prompts Congressional Inquiry

Someone should give ABC a hint that a "Congressional Inquiry" (for whatever good it does) has been going on for more than a year.

Thanks Domandred.

Zero’s in a downward spiral. We may see some statistical anomalies and we *will* see vote fraud by the Demwits, who are cheating traitors, but as predicted, he doesn’t care what happens to the Demwit party, and is dragging it down to Hell with him.

Why would he do that?

Gosh, it’s almost as if he’s been working on rebuilding it as a gov’t-subsidized Muzzie-run OPEC-financed racially segregated organization, and had to bleed out everything that doesn’t conform to that.

We’ll need vigilance right on through to the 2014 midterm elections, and beyond.

I am wondering if this appointment has anything to do with quashing unfavorable stories about Obama

“Obama appoints wife of Univision owner to UN diplomatic post”

The old media is shaming itself into oblivion. The new media rocks. Pulitzer made no pretense of objectivity as it was his aim to expose injustices with zeal. We do not need to claim objectivity either, but it helps to be truthful.

I hate to don tinfoil, but the ozero administration offered a cushy job to the wife of the head of Univision. It smells a lot like the fake job set up for Michelle when her husband was a state senator.
