Rick Perry calls out Eric Holder on Gaza Flotilla

Thomas Lifson
Texas Governor Rick Perry is looking a little like a presidential campaigner, challenging Attorney General Eric Holder to enforce the law against US citizens who plan to participate in the Gaza Flotilla. Noting that their "naval expedition" specificallty violates the language of the law, he puts Holder on the spot.

Holder is sworn to uphold the law, and if he fails to take action, or at least provide some sorry rationale, he gives Perry an issue with broad appeal among conservatives, should he enter the race.
