    El Diego is linked to the deaths of more than 1,500 people in Mexco, according to CNN, though it is unclear exactly how many were killed with weapons provided by the United States government.

    “According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported.

    “When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in the summer of 2011, he was found with weapons that the American government had allowed to enter Mexico,” the anchor added.

    El Diego was, until he was taken into custody, the leader of the Juarez drug cartel’s La Linea — or “enforcement arm.” According to the El Paso Times, El Diego told Mexican authorities after his capture that La Linea’s mission was, among other things, to “eliminate the members of the Sinaloa cartel in Ciudad Juárez.”...

    While the American media is basically ignoring this, it is big news in Spanish Speaking radio and television. Not being part of the US media cover up of everything obama does, he is being bashed unmercifully by Univision.

    This is going to make some serious inroads on obama's latino lead. Hispanics might be interested in promised freebies, but not to the extent of letting their children get killed for obama's cause.

    Beat that dead horse some more.

    Drug cartels get most of their weapons from the military.

    The US supplies the military in Mexico and other Central America countries with billions of dollars in arms. U.S. Arms and Equipment Sales Listed By Country | Just the Facts - U.S. military aid to Latin America and the Caribbean

    The number of weapons involved in F&F is a tiny percent of the cartels arsinal.

    The real culprit is the policy of interdiction and incarceration with regards to recreational substances. Drug war supporters are to blame for the violence and death.
