Cartel Boss had Fast and Furious Weapons

Hot Air is reporting on an update to the Mexican drug cartel problem.  You might remember that Fast and Furious, the illegal scheme of Eric Holder to run guns to Mexican drug cartels so that he could help his buddy and boss, President Obama, trace guns into Mexico so that they could inflict new, stringent gun regulations on us.  Well, it turns out that the Mexican government knew just how far those guns got.
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.
He had Fast and Furious guns on his person. Interesting. We know now how high in the cartels the guns got. All the way to the top. The Univision reporter is asking hard questions and maybe soon the Mexican government will start asking hard questions.
The Univision reporter says at the end that “the United States government has many things that they ought to make public.” Unfortunately, this administration is still hiding Fast & Furious evidence and witnesses from Congressional investigators via a bogus executive privilege claim.
I'd think that the Mexican government might like to subpoena Eric Holder and have him extradited to Mexico to answer questions.  As soon as we fire his boss, even if President Obama gives him a pardon for that string of felonies, I doubt that the Mexican government would be so forgiving.  Eric Holder might get to see what the inside of a Mexican prison looks like and that would be poetic justice.

I see that another Border Patrol agent has been gunned down in Arizona.  I wonder where those guns came from?  Holder has blood on his hands.
