As observed at PJ Tatler, Univision has not coddled President Obama recently.

Univision’s anchors grilled President Obama about Fast and Furious during a town hall meeting on the network earlier in September, suggesting that Attorney General Eric Holder ought to be fired over the deadly scandal. Univision’s prominence among Spanish-speakers could have a big impact. Fast and Furious victims have mostly been Mexican citizens caught up in the drug war.
According to the Daily Caller,

“The consequences of the controversial ‘Fast and Furious’ undercover operation put in place by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2009 have been deadlier than what has been made public to date,” the network said. “The exclusive, in-depth investigation by Univision News’ award-winning Investigative Unit — Univision Investiga — has found that the guns that crossed the border as part of Operation Fast and Furious caused dozens of deaths inside Mexico.”
Among other groups of Fast and Furious victim stories Univision says it will tell in the special to air Sunday evening at 7 p.m., is one about how “16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010″ were gunned down with weapons the Obama administration gave to drug cartel criminals through Fast and Furious.

“Univision News’ Investigative Unit was also able to identify additional guns that escaped the control of ATF agents and were used in different types of crimes throughout Mexico,” the network added. “Furthermore, some of these guns — none of which were reported by congressional investigators — were put in the hands of drug traffickers in Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision’s findings ‘the holy grail’ that Congress had been searching for.”

. . . .

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.

The viewership of Univision's interviews with President Obama and Governor Romney was slightly skewed in favor of Governor Romney:

Univision aired Meet the Candidate interviews with Romney and Obama -- on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively -- and slightly more viewers opted for Romney. The challenger's one-hour special pulled in 2.8 million viewers at 10 p.m., topping Obama's telecast by 100,000.
While the skewing in favor of Governor Romney was modest, I found it surprising that President Obama was not substantially more widely viewed than Governor Romney. Might it suggest that Hispanic voters' interest in Governor Romney may be increasing while that in President Obama is diminishing?

As noted above, it was during that Univision interview that President Obama was -- for the first time during a major broadcast widely viewed by those commonly seen as his avid supporters -- seriously questioned about Fast and Furious. Generally, he responded ineffectively with talking points. During the Univision report coming up tonight, likely to be widely viewed, some of those talking points will probably be challenged effectively.

Chávez' Obama endorsement

During an interview in Caracas, Venezuela's el Presidente Chávez said that if he were an American, he would vote for President Obama. I suspect he may have been truthful -- an uncommon occurrence -- about his views of President Obama if nothing else.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, saying he prefers President Barack Obama.
Chavez also said in a televised interview that aired Sunday that he'd like to have "normal" relations with the U.S. government.

The Venezuelan leader says, in his words, "If I were American, I'd vote for Obama."

Like President Obama, el Presidente Chávez is facing a tough reelection battle. The Venezuelan election is scheduled for just one week away, on October 7th. Might he have been trying to present a more moderate Chávez than previously? I don't know; perhaps, or perhaps he was just flailing around. He has been doing a lot of that recently.

Chávez' opponent is doing quite well even in Caracas. Here is a photo of his rally today.



This may be the first time during Chávez' long time in office when he stands a better than even chance of defeat at the polls. Despite pontifications by our own beloved Former President Carter that the Venezuelan electoral system is the best in the world, massive fraud seems likely. Even if Capriles wins it does not necessarily mean, of course, that Chávez will relinquish the presidency. If he does not, civil war is possible.

57 Previously Undiscovered Fast and Furious Guns Used in Mexican Crimes (Univision)
ABC News Univision ^ | Sunday, September 30, 2012 | Gerardo Reyes and Santiago Wills
Posted on September 30, 2012 9:03:12 PM EDT by kristinn

Fifty seven previously unidentified firearms linked to Operation Fast and Furious were recovered in sites associated with murders, kidnappings, and at least two gruesome massacres.

Univision News obtained the list of Fast and Furious weapons and a list containing almost 60,000 recovered firearms compiled by Mexico's Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional (SEDENA). A cross-reference of the serial numbers of the guns resulted in 96 full matches (several partial matches were discarded). The 96 firearms linked to Operation Fast and Furious all turned up at crime scenes in Mexico from 2009 to 2010.

In a report published on July 26, Congress mentioned there were "at least 48 recoveries involving 122 weapons [in Mexico] connected to Operation Fast and Furious." To check whether those were the same guns pinpointed by the data cross-reference, Univision News contacted congressional investigators asking for the serial numbers of the 122 guns in Congress' report. After an initial request by Univision News in mid-September and despite numerous phone calls and emails, there was no further response.

Univision News then gathered all the serial numbers available in the evidence appendixes of the major congressional investigation released by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Iowa Senator Charles Grassley last July.

Sharyl Attkisson at 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.

The Univision report will air at 7 pm ET tomorrow night, with English-language subtitles.

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 September 30, 2012 8:15:51 PM EDT 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.

Imagine if our MSM did its job like Univision.  Undecided

I think is where the disconnect is taking place.   What is the "JOB" of the group of companies that make up the US media?

To make money for their shareholders, of course. Not to keep it real, not to be fair and balanced, not to maintain any level of 'journalistic integrity'.  Those things are not the reality of any media outlet.  They aren't paid in karma, they're paid in cold hard dollars from advertisers, to the shareholders/stockholders.

FOX doesn't put F&F on their airwaves because they feel it's the moral thing to do - they put it on the air because its viewers are very very interested in the topic.  And these viewers = profit.

So really, 'the job' of the mainstream media isn't to cover F&F.  The media isn't a morality organization (and covering this article is the morally right thing to do).  The media - a group of us CORPORATIONS - is here to make money by selling current events with opinion and glossy graphics.  Period.

The Obama Administration’s Deadly Scandals
Front Page Magazine ^ | October 1, 2012 | Arnold Ahlert
Posted on October 1, 2012 4:05:04 AM EDT by Cincinatus' Wife

As for Obama, even as the ongoing scandals of Fast and Furious and Benghazi continue to deteriorate, it remains almost certain no one will call this administration or its standard-bearer to account for their blood-chilling indifference. They are people who have amply demonstrated that honor, respect and decency can be brushed aside in favor of political expediency as easily as one brushes lint off one’s suit jacket. And the silent media, which both forgive and forget the pile of bodies that have accrued in two major scandals, is equally reprehensible.

Of the many scandals associated with the Obama administration, two stand out above the rest: the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal and the current disinformation campaign surrounding the assassination of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. The president and his minions, aided by media that are “all in” with respect to getting Obama re-elected, have managed to tamp down most of the damming information about the Fast and Furious scandal. They also remain committed to putting out enough conflicting information about the Benghazi scandal that Americans become confused about what actually happened and perhaps lose interest as a result. And in light of the seriousness of these debacles, individuals willing to hold the administration to account seem to be in short supply.

It is critical to remember that these are not the garden variety, “they said-we said” types of scandals that have arisen in past administrations. As a result of the attack in Benghazi and the running of guns into Mexico people were murdered. Hundreds of people. With respect to Fast and Furious, Univision, apparently one of the few media organizations with an ounce of integrity, revealed the scope of such carnage. They have identified several of the massacres committed using guns “walked” into Mexico, including the killing of 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.

Last Friday, the network released a promo of their efforts. “Univision News’ Investigative Unit was also able to identify additional guns that escaped the control of ATF agents and were used in different types of crimes throughout Mexico,” the network revealed. “Furthermore, some of these guns–none of which were reported by congressional investigators–were put in the hands of drug traffickers in Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision’s findings ‘the holy grail’ that Congress had been searching for.”

Yet while Congress has been searching, the Obama administration has been stonewalling. Despite more than a year’s worth of Congressional investigations conducted by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Senate Judiciary Committee–both of which were precipitated by the murder of American Border Agent Brian Terry–the essential questions of who knew what and when, and what purpose the program was meant to serve, remain unanswered.

An internal investigation conducted by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG)–essentially the DOJ investigating itself–was trumpeted by the mainstream media as the definitive report on the matter. Yet the facts say otherwise. Kevin O’Reilly, one of the key players the IG sought out, “declined through his personal counsel our request for an interview.” Furthermore, the White House refused to produce internal documents related to the investigation, claiming such documents were “beyond the purview” of the inspector general. CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson, one of the few reporters willing to follow this scandal wherever it leads, reveals just how far the White House was willing to go to avoid congressional threats to subpoena O’Reilly. “Just days after [lead ATF official on the case Special Agent in Charge Bill] 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,” writes Attkisson.

Add President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege to the mix, which allowed Eric Holder to thumb his nose at congressional investigators’ subpoenas, along with the continuing refusal of the DOJ to cooperate (despite Holder being found in contempt of Congress), and the stunning level of administration callousness is clear. In short, the preservation of bureaucratic careers trumps a genuine investigation into hundreds of murders.

Equally as callous is the mainstream media’s calculated indifference to this scandal. Despite the pile of corpses this utterly misguided program produced, they sought to make moral equivalence to a Bush-era program called Operation Wide Receiver, where no one was killed. Furthermore, the media herd ran with the idea that Eric Holder was exonerated, even as they largely ignored the reality that the report said no such thing, and that the OIG reports directly to the Attorney General.

The administration’s icy indifference was again on display following the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. The Obama team’s ongoing attempts to brazenly lie their way through this scandal have been fairly well-documented. Even some of the president’s more reliable useful idiots have been cowed by the level of utter duplicity demonstrated by this administration’s efforts to obscure the truth.

Yet what remains largely under radar, save for the effort of conservative news outlets, is the documentation of this president’s twisted priorities. One day after American officials in Benghazi were murdered, and their bodies were dragged through the streets, President Obama saw no reason to alter his campaign schedule. He attended a fundraiser in Las Vegas, where he told a crowd of 8,000 adoring fans about the “tough day that we’ve had today.” After a brief tribute to the four slain Americans, it was back to the class warfare rhetoric that is the hallmark of his re-election campaign.

That’s pretty callous. But it was his “60 Minutes” interview with Steve Kroft that should disgust every decent American. Kroft asked Obama if recent developments in the Middle East have given him any pause about his support for the governments that came to power during so-called Arab Spring. “I said even at the time this was going to be a rocky path,” Obama answered. “I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road,” he added. Four dead Americans, including the first ambassador killed since the 1979 murder of Adolph Dubs in Afghanistan — during Carter administration — are considered “bumps in the road”?

It is difficult to imagine such a callous characterization being ignore by the mainstream media, but they remained true to form. In a speech given at an Accuracy in Media (AIM) conference last Thursday, former Democratic Pollster Pat Caddell put the media’s role in perspective. “This press corps serves at the pleasure of this White House and President, led by people like Ezra Klein and JournoList, where they plot the stories together,” said Caddell.

He aimed his most scathing words at the coverage of the Benghazi attack: “First of all we’ve had nine day of lies over what happened because [the Obama administration] can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this….If a President of either party…had a terrorist incident, and got on an airplane after saying something, and flown off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified!” he contended. “It would have been–it should have been the equivalent, for Barack Obama, of George Bush’s ‘flying over Katrina’ moment. But nothing was said at all, and nothing will be said,” he added.

Caddell is somewhat in error. In fact something was said. Mitt Romney was excoriated for “politicizing” the debacle.

As for Obama, even as the ongoing scandals of Fast and Furious and Benghazi continue to deteriorate, it remains almost certain no one will call this administration or its standard-bearer to account for their blood-chilling indifference. They are people who have amply demonstrated that honor, respect and decency can be brushed aside in favor of political expediency as easily as one brushes lint off one’s suit jacket. And the silent media, which both forgive and forget the pile of bodies that have accrued in two major scandals, is equally reprehensible.

Univision report connects Operation Fast and Furious scandal to murders of Mexican teenagers
Daily Caller ^ | October 1, 2012 | Matthew Boyle
Posted on October 1, 2012 2:58:51 AM EDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The Spanish language television news network Univision unleashed a bombshell investigative report on Operation Fast and Furious Sunday evening, finding that in January 2010 drug cartel hit men slaughtered students with weapons the United States government allowed to flow to them across the Mexican border.

“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,” according to a version of the Univision report in English, on the ABC News website.

“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.”

Citing a Mexican Army document it obtained and published, Univision reported that “[t]hree 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).”

That operation was Fast and Furious.

The “massacre,” as Univision described it, was not the only bombshell the network unveiled in its Sunday evening report.

“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,” the Univision report reads.

The network also uncovered another Fast and Furious weapons “massacre.” On September 2, 2009, 18 young men were killed at “El Aliviane, a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez,” according to the report.

Univision found many of these victims through “access to the list of serial numbers for weapons used in Fast and Furious” and the “list of guns seized in Mexico,” according to English subtitles on the Spanish-language video.

“After cross-referencing them both lists, it became clear that a least a hundred of them were used in crimes of all kinds,” the subtitles read. “We found 57 weapons that were not mentioned in [the U.S.] Congress’ investigation.”

Though Univision tracked many more victims down, it said that “the death toll that this free flow of weapons authorized by ATF had in Mexico has not been tallied.”

Univision held nothing back in its broadcast, airing images and video of bloodied, dead bodies. The network showed the faces of the dead and walked viewers through how cartel operatives hunted their victims down with the weapons President Barack Obama’s administration allowed straw buyers to traffick to them.

One photo, for instance, showed pools of blood in the streets of a Mexican town after a “massacre” committed by murderers armed with Fast and Furious weapons. Video footage showed where some of the victims were killed and how the cartels chased their helpless victims to their deaths.

The Univision broadcast implicitly suggested that Americans have no regard for the victims of violence American policy helps fuel — that is, until one of those victims ends up being an American.

It wasn’t until U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder prompted whistle-blowers to come forward to Congress to publicly voice concerns about ]he program that the Obama administration stopped allowing firearms to flow into Mexico.

One victim’s father, Mexican poet Javier Sicilia, told Univision he thinks “Americans are not often moved by the pain of those outside [their country].”

“But they are moved by the pain of their own,” Sicilia added.

“Well, turn around and watch the massacres.”

Univision says the Obama administration’s actions “inadvertently” helped fuel violence and a war between the cartels.

“In Mexico, the timing of the operation coincided with an upsurge of violence in the war among the country’s strongest cartels,” according to Univision.

“In 2009, the northern Mexican states served as a battlefield for the Sinaloa and Juarez drug trafficking organizations, and as expansion territory for the increasingly powerful Zetas. According to documents obtained by Univision News, from October of that year to the end of 2010, nearly 175 weapons from Operation Fast and Furious inadvertently armed the various warring factions across northern Mexico.”

An English-subtitled translation of one expert’s comments indicated that the weapons the Obama administration allowed to flow to the cartels through Fast and Furious were “capable of not only penetrating an armored vehicle but also a whole house from wall to wall.”

According to the Univision report, it wasn’t weak gun laws that made Fast and Furious possible, as some liberal commentators have suggested.

“If up to this point drug dealers could easily obtain and smuggle guns, the United States government made it easier,” English subtitles on one part of the report read.

“When Fast and Furious began in 2009, the ATF and Arizona prosecutors told [gun] store owners to sell weapons without restrictions to suspicious buyers.”

Univision also said that it was Phoenix ATF office leader Bill Newell who ultimately concluded that “the only way to track the guns was to wait for weapons to be recovered in crime scenes in Mexico.”

That charge, if true, would mean the Obama administration decided to allow cartel operatives to kill and injure people with the weapons it gave them, and to recover the guns only after criminals ditched them at brutal — often deadly — crime scenes.

Univision also found additional details about other gunwalking operations the Obama administration undertook.

“In Florida, the weapons from Operation Castaway ended up in the hands of criminals in Colombia, Honduras and Venezuela, the lead informant in the case told Univision News in a prison interview,” the network reported. The informant Unvision interviewed was “Vietnam veteran-turned-arms-trafficker” Hugh Crumpler.

“When the ATF stopped me, they told me the guns were going to cartels,” Crumpler said. “The ATF knew before I knew and had been following me for a considerable length of time. They could not have followed me for two months like they said they did, and not know the guns were going somewhere, and not want for that to be Happening".

Report claims to have found 57 more guns tied to Operation 'Fast and Furious'
 

Published October 01, 2012
 
FoxNews.com
 








Sept. 20, 2012: Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department's inspector general, testifies before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. (AP)



A 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.
 
According to a Mexican army document obtained by Univision, three of the high caliber weapons used in the attack were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the ATF. The partial transcript obtained by Fox News did not specify whether this was Operation "Fast and Furious," or another similar ATF operation.
 
The "Fast and Furious" program caught the attention of Congress and the rest of the country after weapons from "Fast and Furious" were found at the crime scene of murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
 
One Justice Department official resigned and another retired after an inspector general report on the probe faulted multiple agencies for letting it get out of hand. Another 14 officials were forwarded for possible disciplinary action.

Imagine if our MSM did its job like Univision.  Undecided


Funny how on the morning Joe bullshit they did not mention this once. 

And you wonder why 180 is so pathetically uninformed on so many issues?

Guns linked to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation have been linked to at least two brutal massacres in Mexico, according to a report that found 57 previously unidentified guns at Mexican crime scenes.
 
By examining Congressional and Mexican government records, Univision was able to link the 57 guns back to Fast and Furious using their serial numbers. Three of the weapons were used in a January 2010 assault on a teenager’s birthday party in Ciudad Juarez. Cartel members killed 14 teenagers and wounded 12 others. Other weapons were linked to the September 2009 massacre of 18 men at rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez.

In Fast and Furious, ATF agents intentionally allowed straw buyers to illegally purchase guns in the United States and “walk” them across the border to Mexico. The agents hoped to track the guns and use them to arrest top-level figures in Mexican cartels. But the agents soon lost track of the guns, and in 2010, two were found near the body of a slain border patrol agent.
 
Congressional Republicans have doggedly investigated the operation, and the House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt earlier this year after he refused to turn over certain documents, citing executive privilege. An inspector general’s report released last week cleared Holder of any involvement, but recommended disciplinary action against 14 federal officials. Two top Justice Department officials left the government the day the report was released.

Sept. 30, 2012





 The U.S. government's botched Fast and Furious gun-trafficking operation left a trail of bullets and bodies in Mexico. In a special investigation by Univision News, which aired Sunday night, several new revelations came to light. Here are five worth knowing.
 
1. Fast and Furious Guns Used in Infamous Massacre

Mexican military reports show that at least three guns from North America were used in the Salvarcar massacre in 2010. A total of 15 people died in that incident, most of them teens. They were gunned down by the Juarez cartel, which mistook the group for rival Sinaloa cartel members. According to one document, the weapons entered Mexico illegally through a border point near Columbus, New Mexico.
 
2. 57 Previously Unidentified Weapons Surface

Univision cross-referenced the serial numbers off guns used in Fast and Furious against guns seized in Mexico. Nearly 100 of those weapons were used in crimes, and 57 of them were not mentioned in an investigation carried out by the U.S. Congress.
 
3. Mexico Knew About Fast and Furious

Andrew Selee, vice president for programs at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington D.C. says the Mexican government was aware of the gun-walking, in spite of releasing a statement saying they were not. William Newell, the special agent in charge of ATF's Phoenix field division and one of the supervisors of Fast and Furious, told Univision, via his attorney, that the Procuraduria General De La Republica (PGR) in Mexico was certainly aware of the operation.
 
4. U.S. Gun-Walking Operations Extended to Other Countries

Fast and Furious was not the only ATF operation of its kind that went awry. In Operation Castaway, Hugh Crumpler, a former ATF informant, told Univision News the ATF deliberately allowed guns to pass into Honduras, Puerto Rico and Colombia. Several of those weapons have already been found at crime scenes and in the hands of local cartels. In an email message, the ATF claims that they "found out about the weapons when they had already been shipped."
 
5. U.S. Agents Were Attacked with U.S. Weapons

Victor Avila and Jaime Zapata, two U.S. Federal Agents assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico, were in the process of transporting surveillance equipment when their vehicle was surrounded by cartel members and shot more than 90 times. Zapata died and Avila was seriously wounded.
 
Prior to traveling into the region, Avila reached out to a supervisor expressing concerns over security that were backed by a U.S. State Department document which forbade U.S. Embassy employees from traveling in that area. The reason: It was heavily controlled by the Zetas cartel. According to an exclusive interview with Avila, the supervisor did not share his concerns. Three of the guns used in this shootout were also from a gun-walking operation, but not Fast and Furious.
 
Families for both agents say they still do not understand why the agents were asked to transport equipment through this region, or why the men who trafficked these weapons were not arrested months earlier.












Newell is a lying sack of shit.

If a connection can be made the Administration, then what? Would this be an impeachable offense?

Of course not.   Obama and his impecabble staff of highly reputable cabinet members that are beyond reproach cant be at any fault in this. 

Must be Palins' fault.  Lets' impeach her for this. 

Every day that goes by the lengths that the incompetent left will go to make excuses for this failed presidency grow more ridiculous and absurd.
