From the Daily Caller:
Univision: Juarez drug cartel leader ‘El Diego’ was captured with Fast and Furious weapons
By Matthew Boyle | 10/01/2012
When Mexican authorities took Juarez drug cartel carnage king Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez — better known as “El Diego” — into custody, he had weapons from Operation Fast and Furious on his person, the English-language transcript of the Spanish-language television network Univision’s special investigation into the scandal shows.
“According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre [of the 16 teenagers] 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.
So why isn’t this being reported by the reporters in our mainstream media? Don’t they care when so many Hispanics are massacred with American supplied weapons?
Are they racists?
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.”
Mexican authorities have alleged El Diego is responsible for the murders of at least 1,500 people in Juarez and Chihuahua City, Mexico, according to the El Paso Times.
In fact, El Diego’s gang, La Línea, has been linked to to at least three major massacres. The massacre of 16 teenagers at a high school party, and the shooting that killed 19 patients at a rehab center, and a cell phone-detonated car bomb attack.
Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric Holder, has not responded to a request for comment in response to this revelation.
She is probably still huddled with Media Matters, trying to figure out how to spin all of this.
