Operation Fast and Furious Investigative Reporting – Univision does the MSM job for them
This is chilling. The deaths directly attributed to Operation Fast and Furious continue to mount. Eric Holder should be in prison, instead he is your Attorney General. The mainstream media should be covering this story in depth as part of the vetting process of the INCUMBENT. Instead, the report was from Univision. President Obama continues to blame Bush for this despite the fact HE KNOWS the operation started in 2009 under his Justice Department.
Below excerpts from: http://www.humanevents.com/2012/10/01/fast-and-furious-the-ciudad-juarez-student-slaughter/ (emphasis mine)
“While some Mexican authorities estimate 300 of their citizens have been injured or killed by Fast and Furious guns, little has been known about those weapons south of the U.S. border until now,” intones a Fox News report. Why would that be? Oh, right: because we don’t have a functioning investigative media in the United States. We have a series of Obama campaign offices with three-letter acronyms like ABC, CBS, and CNN. These media “gatekeepers” long ago decided there was no story in the astonishing Fast and Furious scandal, so they generally stopped investigating it, with the exception of a few determined lone wolves, notably Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News.
But Univision did the job English-language networks and newspapers won’t do, and assembled a chilling special report, complete with photographs of the carnage. The primary method of “recovering” Fast and Furious guns has involved picking them up from crime scenes. Univision found 57 more of the 1,961 bloodstained weapons “misplaced” by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, including three high-powered weapons employed in a massacre that ABC News describes as follows:
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.
