Obama Security Leaks OK, Fast and Furious Docs Stay Under Wraps

Deputy Attorney General James Cole's letter to Congressman Darrell Issa invoking Executive Privilege on Fast and Furious documents demonstrated the administration's selective application of the rule of law once again.

The documents responsive to the remaining subpoena items pertain to sensitive law enforcement activities, including ongoing criminal investigations and prosecutions, or were generated by Department officials in the course of responding to congressional investigations or media inquiries about this matter that are generally not appropriate for disclosure. 

Cole stated the reason Holder withheld documents was twofold. First, Justice had already "substantially complied" with the subpoena. Second, the documents were highly sensitive in nature.

The first is false because the House Oversight Committee had subpoenaed documents in October 2011 to no avail; the second highlights the other scandal on Obama's plate, namely, the White House leaks intended to enhance Obama's image in an election year.  

The President is willing to jeopardize national security for political reasons but cries 'Executive Privilege' when it comes to Operation Fast and Furious.

The magnitude of the recent intelligence breaches has boggled the minds of politicians on both sides of the aisle. They stand in stark contrast to the June 20 decision by the White House to block Fast and Furious documents.  

Senator Dianne Feinstein of California remarked, "What we're seeing...is an Anschluss, an avalanche of leaks. And it's very, very disturbing." 

Yet Deputy AG says Obama and Holder's tight-fisted grasp of 1,300 pages of relevant documents on Fast and Furious is warranted due to their classified nature? Is he kidding?

The Obama administration leaks to major news organizations like AP and the New York Times include U.S. involvement in the computer virus Stuxnet; details of the Osama bin Laden mission identifying SEAL Team 6 as the military team performing the successful operation; President Obama personally picking out terror suspects in the Middle East for killing by our ultra-secret drones; and WH sources who let it slip allies had infiltrated an agent into Al Quaeda. 

The nonchalant release of top secret information to the Obama media is a-okay with this administration but now they hide behind Executive Privilege when they don't want to give up subpoenaed records?
