I watched all of Eric Holder’s testimony before congress yesterday. (I know. I know…)
If we are to believe him, we must believe that he did not know that his agents were walking guns across an international border and he literally didn’t get the memo. We are also to believe that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who should have been consulted since it does, in fact, involve another country, was not consulted. We are to believe Holder when he says he never spoke to her about it, nor to DHS Secretary Napolitano, nor to the President.
We have at least one, possibly two dead American border agents involving guns from this operation. We have at least 200 dead Mexicans from these weapons, as well. Nobody denies this.
We are to believe that if Felipe Calderon called up Obama and said “Hey, Barack, buddy, thanks for the State Dinner, man, but your people walked guns over the border and they’re killing my people,” and given all of this, the only possible reaction the President could have had to the Mexican president would be “Whah? I don’t know what you’re talking about, hombre.”
Had it not been for Sheryl Atkisson’s singularly spectacular reporting blowing the lid off this unbelievable scandal, Obama, if we are to believe Holder’s testimony, would have been utterly clueless if the phone had rung… Obama should be white-hot p*ssed off that his A.G. left him so vulnerable! Quite apart from the awfulness of it on it’s face!
And there’s Holder’s guilty demeanor. If all of this were true he should be white-hot p*ssed off, too, and heads would be rolling. Instead, not a single person has been fired, and a few of the people directly involved have been promoted. And Holder is smug, arrogant, and deflective.
Not the demeanor of an innocent man.
