I feel like I am watching re-runs of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal as supporters of President Obama run from one television microphone to another trying to defend Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder and make the Congressional panel investigating the Fast and Furious Gun Running Operation look like the evil Ken Starr.  Supporters talking points:  The congressional panel is attacking Holder 'because of his skin color', the questions are "very pointed", this is all to make Obama look bad in a presidental election year, and of course "this was started under President Bush"...and on and on.

After the death of border patrol agent Brian Terry on December 15, 2010, a reporter asked President Obama about the "Fast and Furious" operation in which Obama said he first heard about it on the news. In a letter dated February 4, 2011 Department of Justice Attorney General Eric Holder denied the existance of Fast and Furious.  Later he claimed it was a local office operation. But later, during the congressional investigation and under oath, he said that it was an operation which started under President Bush which he later "retracted" under oath when documents showed that the Wide Receiver operation in which he was refering to, had been shut down in 2007.

Now, after a year and a half of congressional investigation, President Obama invoked Executive Priveledge to withhold information from Congress in the "Fast and Furious" gun running scandal. ABC news reported 'Obama doesn't want congress to be able to snoop around in their email'.  What happened to "We're the most transparent and ethical administration in U.S. history." - Obama, January 23, 2010.

Sarah Brady who became an avid proponent of gun control after the assasination attempt on President Reagan paralyzed her huband, James Brady, told the Washington Post in a story in their Style Section published April 11, 2011 that President Obama told her he was 'working on gun control under the radar'.

As far back as 1995, Eric Holder, said "We must brainwash people against guns."

President Obama invoked Executive Privelege in the investigation into the death of a border patrol agent.  I invoke the question, "What are they trying to hide behind Executive Privelege?"  I guess they're putting aluminum foil on the transparency on this one.
