Univision To Air Tonight (7:00 p.m. ET/PT (6 p.m. Central)) The Untold Story Behind The "Fast and Furious" Scandal..

In July and August I worked on a post for Big Government about the human aspect of Operation Fast & Furious, the government gun walking operation that put guns into the hands of already dangerous Mexican drug cartels. The Old Media largely ignores Fast & Furious, but when they do pay attention, they scarcely mention the victims. Not until I put an enormous amount of pressure on The New York Times did they start saying "Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry" instead of just "a border patrol agent."

Tomorrow Today[ed], September 30, Univision will be airing “Aqui y Ahora” (Here and Now) about Fast & Furious. It will document the people who lost their lives because of this program. Univision’s investigative unit found many more deaths linked to Fast & Furious and will talk about them during the special, including the killing of 16 young people at a party.

I remember watching Obama, when attending a town hall with Univision, he was asked why he didn't fire Eric Holder. Obama went into a speel and lied by saying GW started the program.
“Well, first of all, I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” said President Obama.

Fast and Furious started in November 2009. Someone needs to remind President Obama he was president at that time, not President Bush. He also claimed Mr. Holder has held people accountable for their actions. However, no one has been held accountable. People have been allowed to resign quietly or reassigned to another position. No one has been fired. No one has been charged with any crime.

We are in a sad state of affairs when it takes Univision to investigate the Fast and Furious scandal.
