FOX News reported:

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.

ABC reports that “Fast and Furious” weapons were linked to the alleged leaders of La Linea:

The massacre at the Aliviane rehabilitation center was ordered by Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez, alias “El Diego”, the same man who ordered the massacre of Villas de Salvarcar, an action in which three weapons from an ATF gun-tracing operation were used to murder 16 teenagers. At the time, Acosta Hernandez was one of the alleged leaders of La Linea, the armed branch of the Juarez Cartel…

…In 2009, Acosta Hernandez led La Linea in an effort to stave off an offensive from the Sinaloa Cartel, commanded in Juarez by Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a violent enforcer close to Chapo Guzman, who reputedly skinned an enemy’s face to create a soccer ball.

UPDATE: Jay Sekulow on Fox News says Holder is responsible for Fast & Furious:

    FOX is still using the adjective “botched” ? Really?

    Don’t worry, Obama will deny this, cover it up or just plain ignore it like all his friends will do at the other Networks as though it never happened.

  • Stella Baskomb

    Mr President – yeah, you, Barackhmed Obamadinejad:

    You’re not doing the job, so we got to let you go.

  • Granny

    You know, a rational and logical person might actually be led to believe that “Fast & Furious”, rather than a way to “track” gun purchases, was actually a way to deliberately get guns into the hands of the cartels.

    Every da*n person involved in this murderous act should be rounded up and jailed~including Holder and Obama and all their cronies. I hope some of the parents of these young men murdered sue, and sue big time. Defendent: Holder and Obama

  • Grandma Perkins

    Let me guess: Es culpa de George Bush.

  • lizzy84

    Jaimie Zapata had also interdicted another 50 rifles moved from Texas some of which were “walked” under similar circumstances . And look where that got him.

  • Larkin

    This is a botched administration.

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, My Guns-4-Mexican Gangs program got out of control Fast. A lot of Mexicans got murdered… and one border patrol agent. But, I have a campaign to run!

    Besides, Mexicans aren’t brown enough to be considered my voters. Screw them! I am sure Eric Holder will back me on that!

    If you like the way I give deadly weapons to Mexican Gangs and get people killed then vote for me!

    You may have heard this before but, this is super important! Forget about the murdered Mexicans and the crappy border patrol agent! Send me $3.00 before midnight! My campaign is going bust.

    For ever one AK47 you get from Eric Holder you will get two free pre-filled-out absentee ballots. What a deal!

    Remember if you loved one is shot dead before election time make sure to send in his pre-filled-out absentee ballot. Vote early and vote often! Good day.

    Obama should have been impeached because of this, as well as prosecuting Holder.

    Nixon’s Watergate, was child’s play next to this!

  • owl

    #8 Yep. You never hear a Dem say Fast & Furious without Bush. Obama did it again on the Univision interview. Lying Liar lying if his lips are moving.

    Univision has been doing what OUR journalists here are not. THANK YOU, UNIVISION

  • xkaydet65

    An update blaming Holder??? But it’s from a Christian conservative think tank. If there was a report that the next installment of the Univision report blamed Holder,THAT would be worthy of update. But a conservative saying Holder is responsible is like saying anyone the Wise Guys may be involved in private sanitation.

    Secret Wiretap Applications Reveal Holder
    Lied to Congress on Fast and Furious

    CUERNAVACA, MEXICO ~ Thursday, April 2, 2009

    Attorney General Eric Holder at the Mexico/
    United States Arms Trafficking Conference

    [Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break
    the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF
    personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement
    our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the
    border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a
    new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is
    making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.]

    Stimulus: Obama Signed For It

    Obama Orders Launched Fast and Furious

    How ‘Wide Receiver’ and ‘Fast and Furious’ are different

    [The Bush administration, as part of Wide Receiver, notified the Mexican government when arms and drug smugglers were crossing. When the guns were being walked across the border or when they had been purchased legally, being taken back to Mexico, the Mexican government was notified. At least 1,400 arrests were made as part of Wide Receiver. Now, once ATF found out the smugglers were disabling the tracking devices, the RFID tracking devices that were planted in the guns, they ripped them out and then the guns were lost. So the program was shut down in October of 2007. Once the bad guys discovered the tracking devices, the program was ended, in 2007. Ended.]

    Considering how much crap Bush got for Abu Ghraib, I am aghast at the lack of attention this has gotten and how Obama gets off scott-free.

    Subprime personnel. Subprime work. Subprime results.

    Any question as to why Detroit is the sh-thole that it is?

  • Brotherhood in Mexico

    There’s an interesting undercurrent of analysis suggesting that Fast and Furious wasn’t solely about domestic issues, ala manufacturing a crisis that allows for further gun control. Some in the administration are known to support Revolution in Mexico akin to what the administration has supported in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya.

    Imagine the excitement envisioned by the likes of Anita Dunn of an Islamic Brotherhood-like radical front controlling the nation of Mexico, and how that wild fire could spread across central and south America.

    WARNING VIDEO IS GRAPHIC; A look at the horrific, graphic Univision Fast & Furious excerpt.

    WARNING: The below is not the entire Univision Operation Fast & Furious expose: it’s merely about ten minutes of it. Ten very graphic, very infuriating, and very embarrassing ten minutes of it. Don’t watch it if you have a physical/mental problem with seeing people being murdered on-screen, and for real:

    video on site and thank you, UNIVISION.

  • The top U.S. law enforcement official is overtly aiding and abetting criminal, lawless killers and law breakers. Holder must go to prison for a long time.

  • Jillian Galloway

    American taxpayers are being forced to pay $40 Billion a year for a prohibition that causes 10,000 brutal murders & 800,000 needless arrests each year, but which doesn’t even stop CHILDREN getting marijuana.

    After seventy-five years of prohibition, it’s obvious that the federal marijuana prohibition causes FAR more harm than good and must END! Drug Dealers Don’t Card, Supermarkets Do.

    Daily Caller ~As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office…

    And now he’s oBama’s AG. Why am I not surprised?

    As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

    Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

    Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”

    Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.

    What I would be interested in if an investigation were launched would be what’s uncovered during the discovery process.

    It would likely prove very illuminating, if the obstruction that is certain to be presented can be thwarted…

  • valerie

    Here’s a still photo from an article in The Blaze. There’s also a summary and a link to the article.

    Now we know: what do you get when you have an administration that names a gun-running operation after a movie? Blood running in the streets.

    You’ll find out, if Barack Obama is re-elected, because this is impeachment material, and Mr. Issa’s been forcing DOJ to make the case.
