Posted on 11/08/2011 3:49:08 PM PST by Kaslin
Reporting from Capitol Hill--Attorney General Eric Holder gave testimony today about topics ranging from terrorism, cyber security, CIA interrogation investigations, GITMO, gay/lesbian bullying and even his baby boomer status, but Holders remarks surrounding the Obama Justice Departments Operation Fast and Furious were highly combative.
In his opening statement, Holder said he wanted to clear up and correct some of the inaccurate and irresponsible accusations surrounding Fast and Furious.
The problem is, the only person or department that has been inaccurate and irresponsible surrounding Fast and Furious accusations are officials within the Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, and ATF management officials. Every lie that the Obama Justice Department has thrown out surrounding Fast and Furious has been proven false by the House Oversight Committee, Senator Charles Grassleys office and alternative media outlets up to this point.
Considering his past testimony about when he originally knew about Fast and Furious, Holder was today questioned about his testimony timeline surrounding the scandal. He said in May 2011 he had only known about the program for a few weeks, yet memos addressed directly to him detailing the program are dated July and August 2010.

Kind of like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall.
The term for this kind of response to hard questioning is “evasive”.
he didn’t sound repentant on fox noos.
All you need to know is Holder’s response to Terry’s death.
The question by Cornyn.
No he hasn’t contacted Terry’s family.
What an arrogant ba*#@*(
He acts just like his boss, Obama.
They got Holder to admit that Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious were
They said Wide receiver was WITH the knowledge of Mexico.
and they said they tracked the guns.
For Fast and Furious, it was done without Mexico knowledge.
I know why these guys are doing this.
If they can run out the clock, they are going to start
registering guns in border states.
The cat swallowed the canary.
He knows HE was the one who approved Fast and Furious.
He willingly risked the US reputation, decency in order
to get gun control.
The ends justify the means.
Hitler was noboby compared to Holder, Feinstein,Obama and Secretary
Lie Lie Lie then it becomes the truth.
He isn’t evading. He’s lying.
All the "ums", "ers", etc was a dead giveaway that he was lying.
A dem operative on FoxNews after the hearing repeated several times that Bush started the program and Holder ended it. Neither the FoxNews host or the Republican lawyer corrected him. Don't they know the most important facts?
I want to know if a F/F weapon killed rancher Robert Krentz on his own property in AZ......and if so, murder charges should be brought for him and Agent Terry.
Holder needs to be handcuffed and taken to court.
Oh, he’s not going anywhere. Holder knows when the time comes, he’ll get to throw half the men questioning him from this committee into prison — or a concentration camp — once the “New Order” is implemented. Holder ain’t leaving. He has too much to do to prepare for the final steps of the “Transformation” of America into what Obama has envisioned....
I’m afraid you may be right.
These hearings confirm for me that the Federal Leviathan inhabits a cesspool of unimaginable depth. It must be drained, but I’m afraid the tools found in the soap box and the ballot box don’t stand a chance.
