Fast and Furious stonewall is working
Yesterday, AG Eric Holder evaded questions and continued his stonewall on the House Judiciary Committee subpoena for thousands of documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal, which has claimed the lives of two sworn federal agents and hundreds of Mexicans. If he were a Republican AG, the news would dominate all media, with ABCNBCCBSCNNNYT all demanding to know what did the AG know, and when did he know it?
But because he is the first black Attorney General, and a Democrat, there is barely a peep beyond Fox News and the conservative media. It does not appear the John Boehner and Eric Cantor have the back of Darrell Issa, the courageous investigator pursuing the truth if it comes to a contempt citation coming to a vote. It is an election year, and who needs to raise the hackles of the race baiters, seems to be the thinking.
We have come to an astonishing pass, when the major media organs and the political establishment of both parties seems willing to wink and nod when governmental misconduct takes the lives of sworn officers of the government. Truth, justice, and the American Way? Fuggeddaboudit. John Boehner is no Superman.
