UNIVISION: The Untold Story Behind Fast & Furious

Univision's bombshell report on Fast & Furious.

ABC: Report connects Fast & Furious to murders of 16 teenagers

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 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.

The U.S. government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers.  One source called Univision’s findings the 'holy grail' that Congressional investigators have been seeking.  The guns didn’t stop in Mexico, either:

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.

CBS News reminds us that the Obama administration is still hiding Kevin O’Reilly, a key figure in Operation Fast and Furious:

O’Reilly, then a White House National Security staffer, had phone and email exchanges about Fast and Furious from July 2010 to Feb. 2011 with the lead ATF official on the case: ATF Special Agent in Charge Bill Newell. Just days after Newell testified to Congress on July 26, 2011 that he’d shared information with O’Reilly, whom he described as a long time friend, O’Reilly was transferred to Iraq and not available for questioning. Thereafter, he declined interviews with congressional investigators and the IG.

In a letter sent to O’Reilly’s attorney Thursday, Issa and Grassley state that O’Reilly’s “sudden transfer” to Iraq took him out of pocket in their investigation, and placed him in a position that had already been given to somebody else, raising “serious questions about O’Reilly’s assignment in Baghdad (and) the motivation for his transfer there.” …

“Given that O’Reilly was the link connecting the White House to the scandal, and that the President subsequently asserted executive privilege over the documents pertaining to Fast and Furious, it is imperative that the American people get to the bottom of O’Reilly’s involvement with Fast and Furious,” says the letter to O’Reilly’s attorney.

It goes on to say that if O’Reilly does not agree to an interview within 30 days, congressional Republicans will have no choice but to “use compulsory process” or subpoena power to require his testimony.


Full Univision report broadcast last night.

Here's the ABC story that goes with the video.

Univision has aggressively covered Fast and Furious, and its most recent major run-in with the scandal came when network anchor Jorge Ramos grilled Obama in an interview on the scandal, asking him why he hasn’t “fired” Holder. During the interview, Obama made at least one false statement relating to Fast and Furious.

Univision Special On 'Fast & Furious'

The untold story?

You're missing the real point here. Subversive gun and drug deals in Mexico by the US government have been going on since the 19th century.



Yeah, Obama's a dirtbag and liar - we know that - but this story goes much deeper.

We get your point. But let's start with the truth getting out there on F&F.

Ask Bush41 about 'Fast and Furious'. It was undoubtedly set up to leave Obummer and The Holder holding the bag of Bush41's flagging 'guns for drugs' trade. Jeb has his sector to manage and logically, Bush43's mouth is too big and he looks good for 9-11 prosecution. I am sure O'Reilly has a story to tell. He better be REAL careful about what he says. It may be too late for him. Safer for him if he comes forward. " Dead men tell no tales." "Too many loose ends, wouldn't be prudent." Two famous Skull and Bones Society slogans that go back 300 years or more. This IS a Skull and Bones operation going on hiatus.

"Paul Ryan asks for Eric Holder's resignation over F&F". Paul Ryan still believes the four lies his mother told him as a child. That he was perfect, safe, handsome(or pretty), and smart. She probably told him a few more. He and Holder could share a cell and play house for the next ten to twenty if we had a justice department.

Wide Receiver - under Bush
- done with the knowledge and assistance of Mexican federal authorities
- limited number of guns
- guns are modified to include a tracking chip
- stopped when cartels figured out what was happening
- no Mexican or American died as a result of this program

Under Obama
- done without notifying the Mexican government
- thousands of assault weapons and .50 caliber weapons provided to the cartels
- guns were not trackable, nor was any attempt made to track them
- we learn that the Attorney General of the US routinely ignores reports from subordinates about on-going programs that affect relations with a neighboring foreign nation and supports the widespread murder of its citizens
- Democrats and the MSM launched a campaign decrying how over 90% of weapons used by cartels in Mexican attacks came from the US and how US gun laws needed to be drastically tightened
- Over 300 Mexican citizens and 2 American Border Patrol Agents died because of these guns

Yep – blame Bush…
