Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder Plays Sargent Schultz … Claims He Knows Nothing About “Fast & Furious”
Attorney General Eric Holder does his best Hogan’s Heroes Sargent Schultz imitation … he knows nothing about the “Fast & Furious” operation. Let’s have a show of hands, who really believes that Holder is telling the truth? The real question probably is whether knowledge of the “Fast & Furious” gunrunning program to Mexican drug cartels goes high than Holder into the Executive Branch, hint, that would be Barack Obama.
Eric Holder as Sargent Schultz
The head of the U.S. Justice Department launched his strongest personal defense yet in the growing furor over Operation Fast and Furious, the controversial sting targeting Mexican drug cartels and American gunrunners.
On Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said for the first time that not only he but also other higher-ups at the Justice Department were not aware of the operation as it was being carried out. Holder also suggested politics could be a driving force behind Republican lawmakers’ forceful inquiries into the matter.
“The notion that somehow or other this thing reaches into the upper levels of the Justice Department is something that. . . . I don’t think is supported by the facts,” Holder told reporters at an unrelated press conference in Washington. “It’s kind of something I think certain members of Congress would like to see, the notion that somehow or other high-level people in the department were involved. As I said, I don’t think that is going to be shown to be the case — which doesn’t mean that the mistakes were not serious.”
A spokeswoman for the Republican leading a congressional investigation described Holder’s comments as baseless “whining,” and earlier Wednesday the House Republican himself said the issue is about more than who knew what, when.
Somebody get the the bottom of “Fast & Furious” as to who knew what, where and when. When you have an incompetent gunrunning scheme hatched to some how track guns back to drug cartel killers that in turn kills an American border agent … in the immortal words of Humphrey Bogart, “someone is going to have to take the fall”. Could you imagine how Democrats and the MSM would be reacting if this happened during a GOP Presidency.
