Eric Holder’s Fast & Furious Scandal Murder List Continues: 57 Previously Undiscovered Fast And Furious Guns Used In Mexican Drug Cartel Crimes, Murders & Massacre of Mexican Teenagers
More murder details come out on the botched Fast and Furious gun scandal where the Obama admin allowed guns to walk across the US/Mexican border.
From ABC via Univision, the Spanish language television news network unleashed a bombshell investigative report on Operation Fast and Furious Sunday evening. In January 2010, a Mexican drug cartel hit men slaughtered students with weapons the United States government allowed to flow to them across the Mexican border. Also, Univision 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.
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.
Pools Of Blood On The Streets Of Villas De Salvarcar After A Massacre In Which Operation Fast And Furious Guns Were Allegedly UsedAs part of Operation Fast and Furious, ATF allowed 1,961 guns to “walk” out of the U.S. in an effort to identify the high profile cartel leaders who received them. The agency eventually lost track of the weapons, and they often ended up in the hands of Mexican hit men , including those who ordered and carried out the attack on Salvarcar and El Aliviane, a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez where 18 young men were killed on September 2, 2009.
In Mexico, the timing of the operation coincided with an upsurge of violence in the war among the country’s strongest cartels. 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.
“Many weapons cross the border and enter Mexico, but that [Fast and Furious] number, quantity and type of weapons had quite an impact in the war in this area” Jose Wall, an ATF agent stationed in Tijuana from 2009 to 2011, told Univision News.

If only the rest of the MSM could be like Univison, as stated at Weasel Zippers, they just dropped on bomb on you Eric Holder and Barack Obama. Univison seems to be the only media outlet that is holding the Obama administration’s feet to the fire. If the Obama administration is not going to provide the truth to the US, maybe they will be forced to do so to Mexico?
