White House reporter for POLITICO Josh Gerstein discusses the White House's exertion of executive privilege over the memos related to the flawed gun smuggling operation 'Fast and Furious.'
Your memory is playing tricks on you. STUXNET (if it was a DoD initiative) probably started under Bush. But Bush had DISBANDED the CIA unit that tracked down Bin Laden. Panetta (under Obama's orders) reconstituted the unit that tracked down UBL. Bush did nothing to capture Bin Laden. Continuing to cling to a fantasy that Bush had ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT weakens your other positions.
OK, no argument there .... it was originally an initiative conceived and begun in the Bush administration (...just like the killing of Bin Laden and STUXNET)..... so then why the secrecy.....what are they hiding?
Can you spell M-O-R-O-N??
Darrell Issa has multiple arrests on his record for automobile theft and weapons charges. Not to mention being a prime suspect in an arson case where a building he owned "mysteriously" burned to the ground.
This criminal is the head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee???
Wow, go GOP!
Hey, MartinC -
This IS a REPUBLICAN story...Fast and Furious was BEGUN under BUSH...It was expanded under Holder and Obama. Can you name any other Bush initiatives that haven't blown up in Obama's face? I can't.
How quickly did K Rove show up for his Congressional subpoena? Can you please put a lid on the immature party-blaming and think an issue through for once?
As the Democrats have always chirped..."it's not the crime, it's the cover-up".
Outside prosecutor...what have they got to hide?
Can you spell C-O-V-E-R-U-P?
Wow, this is unbelievable. If this was a Republican administration, the NYT, Politico and Obama Public Radio would be canceling everything for "special coverage"....and screaming for an outside independent prosecutor.
