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.

      I’m not sure which I would consider to be a bigger blunder – knowing about it and not doing anything, or not having a clue it was going on. Either way, we haven’t heard the end of this debacle yet.

      It’ll be a bright shiny day when Eric holder is looking out from behind bars.

      Congress needs to keep the pressure on Holder. While SGT. Schultz was a comedy skit, Holder is stonewalling all the crazy things going on in the justice and other departments of this administration. Most of them against the people.

      If this traces thru the justice department to the White House, the congress should issue articles of impeachment for all that are involved.

      shades of Watergate. Starting just the same way! Feigning blindness!

      Obama’s and Holder’s just desserts would be a wonderful
      bowl of fresh impeachments and cream. The ‘fruits’ are
      turning spoiled, so we must act quickly. Nice to wash it
      down with a steaming cup of Tea Party!

      Both of these guys speak in generalities and platitudes, but
      follow thru with nothing at all productive for We the People.

      Barry Hussein and his boyfriend Eric holder are the masterminds behind this farce to make honest firearms owners look bad and they got caught. i am waiting for the agents to start singing.
      put these two behind bars with no windows and a hole in the floor.

      just read where they found more of holder’s weapons at the murder site and that they are turning up elsewhere at other crime sites.
