    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: ‘Fast & Furious' operation: Justice probe clears Eric Holder

    yesterday the ig, michael horowitz, testified in committee

    The White House’s refusal to release communications related to the Fast and Furious gun-walking program and the refusal of a White House official to be interviewed about the matter “made it impossible” for the inspector general (IG) of the Justice Department to “pursue that aspect of the case,” the IG, Michael Horowitz, testified.
    IG: White House Made It Impossible To Pursue Fast And Furious

    ig horowitz in his testimony suggested house oversight pursue its inquiries, since his investigation ran into an obamite brick wall

    the connection at nsa sought by the ig, one kevin oreilly, who had quite a bit of known contact with fallguy willliam newell in phoenix, has actually been relocated by this dept of obstruction of justice---halfway around the world to iraq

    still, mr oreilly agreed to a telephone interview with mr horowitz

    "white house counsel kathryn ruemmler stated oreilly will not be permitted to give an interview"

    what good is an ig report exonerating the admittedly ignorant ag which has been "made impossible" by white house stonewalling?

    what are holder and hussein hiding?

    A fox raided the hen house, a jury of his peers (other foxes) cleared him of any wrong doing.

    Re: ‘Fast & Furious' operation: Justice probe clears Eric Holder

    Andrew Cohen, a contributing editor at The Atlantic and legal analyst for CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” believes Attorney General Eric Holder must resign following this week’s scathing report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, which sharply criticized the administration’s handling of Operation Fast and Furious.

    “In the end, the much-heralded, much-maligned Office of the Inspector General’s report on the ‘Fast and Furious’ gun scandal tells us what we already know: Attorney General Eric Holder should resign if President Barack Obama wins another term,” Cohen wrote in a Friday column for The Atlantic.

    “Even viewing the documents and investigation in a light most favorable to the current head of the Justice Department, even discounting the conspiracy theories offered by the Administration’s most ardent critics, the Inspector General’s report tells us that Holder ultimately failed to do what he absolutely had to do at Justice when he succeeded caretaker Attorney General Michael Mukasey in early 2009,” Cohen wrote.

    “The prime directive – then and now – was to restore more professionalism to the Department after years of partisan abuse and misuse by the Bush Administration,” Cohen continued. “It’s been five years, and many smart people already have forgotten, but the Justice Department under the reign of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was an outright catastrophe, with episodes including but not limited to the U.S. Attorney scandal. Mukasey began the job of cleaning it up during his brief tenure following Gonzales. But it was Holder’s responsibility, when he got the job in January 2009, to ensure that the Department, at a minimum, no longer did anything patently stupid.”

    Cohen added that, while the inspector general concluded that Holder was not personally aware of Fast and Furious until February 2011, “avoiding perjury or obstruction of justice, or being ignorant of your department’s biggest scandal, is no cause for relief. There’s no dispute that he should have known.”

    Cohen also criticized Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer and the consistent failure of administration officials to communicate.

    The [inspector general's] report confirms that Breuer knew about the program in 2010 and yet failed to tell his boss about it,” Cohen wrote. “Never mind what Breuer then said to Congress; this initial failure to report the critical information up the line is inexcusable and unacceptable. And so is Holder’s failure this week even to mention, in his remarks responding to the OIG report, what Breuer belatedly conceded was his ‘mistake.’ Breuer should have resigned long ago. And, since he didn’t, this week Holder should have fired him.

    never mind what breuer then said to congress?

    never mind that he testified he didn't know what the ig and cbs' legal analyst concluded he knew?

    yes, mr cohen finds breuer's failure to inform his boss that serious a failure

    can you disagree?

    I'm surprised liberals/socialists aren't upset about this too... I guess life comes cheap for a liberal... agent terry's family wouldn't think like that and neither will the families of the hundreds of mexicans who got gunned down. I also guess the law doesn't matter that much as long as it is not about legalizing gay marriage or drugs.

    Straw man. Appeal to emotion. Red herring. Non sequitur.

    All 4 in one post? I'm impressed.

    Thank you.

    Still, I would really want Holder to see the inside a cell for a few good years.
