What happens when an animal is cornered? He strikes back.
Is that what is happening here?
President Obama’s top law enforcement official has embraced a new strategy, actively confronting and rebuffing the serious concerns and disparaging remarks emanating from Capitol Hill while admitting mistakes made by his department, promising to hold officials accountable, and vehemently seeking to tell his side of the story.
Not that I feel optimistic or wanting to give him the benefit of the doubt, but there have been numerous other problems – in addition to Fast & Furious – where the DOJ has failed and/or ignored their duties to uphold the Law. Such as Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution and suing Arizona for attempting to defend itself and its citizens (do you know DOJ is suing a number of other states for attempting the same?), charges of voter intimidation, to name but a couple. Not to mention the fact, according to Judicial Watch, of totally ignoring subpoenas with regard to Freedom of Information Act requests for documentation.
No, he’s fighting for his pathetic job performance, in my view.
UPDATE: Friday’s document dump (Jan 27, 2012) includes documentation proving Holder was informed immediately after the agent’s murder
