More Blood on Their Hands: Univision Finds More Fast and Furious Victims

Univision is keeping the heat on President Obama, performing investigative work that the American media has simply refused to do regarding Fast and Furious.

In a recent interview with the President, a Univision reporter asked why he shouldn’t fire Attorney General Eric Holder.  It turns out, the reporter may have been asking based on even further evidence of the operation’s criminal nature.

Yesterday, the Spanish-language television network aired a special that revealed the botched gun-smuggling operation known as Fast and Furious was far more deadly than previously understood.

The documentary revealed that in 2010, a party of nearly 60 teenagers were gunned down by assassins who had been armed by the United States Government.  The result – 16 people dead, mostly teenagers.

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.

And it gets worse…

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.

In fact, the report indicates that other U.S. agents had fallen victim to guns supplied by the U.S. government.

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.

An official familiar with the Congressional investigation into Fast and Furious referred to Univision’s report as “the holy grail”.  The report also showed that guns were trafficked to other countries as well.

“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.”

So the question remains – Why hasn’t Eric Holder been fired yet?

Video: Proof That Terrorists Can Get Anything Past TSA’s Body Scanners

Well this is comforting…

Via, humorously, TSA Out of Our Pants:

This video is here to demonstrate that the TSA’s insistence that the nude body scanner program is effective and necessary is nothing but a fraud, just like their claims that the program is safe (radiation what?) and non-invasive (nude pictures who?). The scanners are now effectively worthless, as anyone can beat them with virtually no effort. The TSA has been provided this video in advance of it being made public to give them an opportunity to turn off the scanners and revert to the metal detectors. I personally believe they now have no choice but to turn them off.
Please share this video with your family, friends, and most importantly, elected officials in federal government. Make sure they understand that your vote is contingent on them fixing the abuse that 200,000 passengers face from the TSA on a daily basis.

The Daily Caller is reporting that Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, had no idea about the video.

On Wednesday morning, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied having any knowledge of Jonathan Corbett’s popular YouTube video titled “How to Get Anything through TSA Nude Body Scanners.”

“I don’t know about that,” Napolitano told The Daily Caller, “so I can’t speak to it.”

The video, released Monday, shows an easy method of concealing large metal objects from the controversial body scanners now in many U.S. airports. YouTube has placed an age restriction on the footage, which has already been seen by more than 216,000 people.

Perhaps if they weren’t scanning the internet for those diabolical Tea Party terrorists, they would have known about a video involving a security breach that has gone viral.

And here’s the video proof…
