Again, I am disappointed in how The Bee prioritizes news articles. The following information was on Page A-6 instead of the front page: The House of Representative Oversight Committee has held hearings on the Department of Justice regarding Fast and Furious. During the past 18 months, Attorney General Eric Holder has testified numerous times, has been caught lying and has failed to comply by withholding information.
Fast and Furious resulted in the murder of one border patrol agent and several hundred Mexican citizens. After being warned Holder would be held in contempt, the president invoked executive privilege. Previously, the president denied any knowledge of this matter; therefore, how can he invoke such an order?
I suspect executive privilege was invoked to cover up any involvement by the White House as this would lessen his chances for re-election. What a mess this administration has put this country in. Come November, we must vote and use common sense. If President Obama is given another term, I can only conclude I am surrounded by a bunch of idiots.
