    Actually, your post is overwhelmed with inaccurate information, since there is no conclusive evidence that "weapons transferred to Mexico under the auspices of Fast and Furious" killed Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

    Randall Terry is an American pro-life activist and candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination for President in 2012. He also founded pro-life organization Operation Rescue.

    I am underwhelmed by the repeated right wing attempts to use Agent Terry's death for their political gain, and in this instance while not even getting his name correct.

    Thats an emotional appeal and you know it.

    Congress has a congressional duty to oversee the spending of American dollars and manpower and hold the executive accountable for its actions. They do not need probable cause, they dont need a search warrant. Now stop posting idiotic ****.

    I am underwhelmed by your crocodile tears and attempts to act like you really give a crap about a border patrol agent when everyone on this board knows you do not. Im pretty sure its much more sad that you are using his death as a way to try to shame those that are behind the idea of getting to the truth of the operation that contributed to his death.

    In short, you are way past despicable with this particular debate tactic.

    Re: Justice Dept says president has exerted executive privilege over Fast and Furious

    Issa accuses Obama of involvement in Fast and Furious operation - TheHill.com

    Many of the documents that Issa has narrowly focused his request on center on the period of time after Feb. 4, 2011, when the Justice Department sent Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) a false letter claiming it did everything in its power not to let guns “walk” across the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Ten months later the DOJ took the rare step of withdrawing that letter. Issa wants to know what agency officials learned in those months and how that decision was reached by reading their internal emails.

    “I am hopeful that, consistent with assertions of executive privilege by previous administrations, you will define the universe of documents over which you asserted executive privilege and provide the committee with the legal justification from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC),” wrote Issa.

    “To what extent were you or your most senior advisers involved in Operation Fast and Furious and the fallout from it, including the false Feb. 4, 2011, letter provided by the attorney general to the committee?"

    the scandal involving Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) misuse of organized-crime informants James J. Bulger and Stephen Flemmi in Boston, and Justice Department deliberations about President Bill Clinton's fundraising tactics, in December 2001.[8]


    Executive privilege - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Bush invoked exective privledge 6 times and he did the same thing for Janet Reno as Obama has done for Holder...so all the outrage is a few years to late.

    So you cant say im being partisan Clinton invoked executive privledge 14 times....so Obama hasnt done a thing all presidents before him have done.

    And Clinton was the first (and only) President since Nixon to have an invoked EP overturned. Since we are concerned about partisanship, that makes one Democrat and one Republican President to have an EP attempt overturned. Neither of them were Bush.

    Let's focus on the now, m'kay?

    So, the President can invoke EP in furtherance of a cover up of a crime?

    Well, it was a question...See the little curly thingy at the end of the sentence? Why not just answer the question instead of getting defensive?
