More on fast and furious


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.
