    It's not often people actually support the government being secretive but that seems to be the case in the United States today. Many support more transparency in government but those who support a closed government will probably have their way, today and in years to come.

    Look at it this way, with the success [sarcasm] of the first one, Holder decided to do it again, only his got folks killed. Thanks for pointing out the Obama admin ressurected a terrible program, and made it worse.

    And what part is false?

    On October 26, 2009, a teleconference was held at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. to discuss U.S. strategy for combating Mexican drug cartels. Participating in the meeting were Deputy Attorney General David W. Ogden, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, ATF Director Kenneth E. Melson, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Michele Leonhart, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Robert Mueller and the top federal prosecutors in the Southwestern border states. They decided on a strategy to identify and eliminate entire arms trafficking networks rather than low-level buyers.[3][27][28] Those at the meeting did not suggest using the "gunwalking" tactic, but ATF supervisors would soon use it in an attempt to achieve the desired goals.[29] The effort, beginning in November, would come to be called Operation Fast and Furious for the successful film franchise, because some of the suspects under investigation operated out of an auto repair store and street raced.[3]

    Are you seriously saying the DOJ had nothing to do with Fast and Furious? Or that F&F started under this admin?

    Ok, so...why the executive privilege? It was testified to earlier in the proceedings that the DoJ leadership and the Whitehouse were unaware of F&F. If this is true, then executive privilege simply can not be used. Since it is being used, I think it safe to assume that someone was lieing earlier in testimony.

    For the record, Wide Reciever's existence has no bearing on F&F in regards to who knew about it (and lied about it).

    The part in bold. That's why I made it bold. To indicate the part I was talking about. It's called 'highlighting'. It's used to indicate a particular section of text that is being referred to. Would you like me to provide some links on the history and use of hifglighting?

    No need to be nasty, just didn't notice it. Hey, I'm old and sight is the third thing to go .

    So Holder didn't pull the trigger, are you seriously saying he wasn't aware of the program?

    Then what's the executive privilege about?
