Executive privilege while not defined in the U.S. Constitution has been justified by the Supreme Court, to be invoked loosely when National security might be at stake, or release of privileged information could jeopardize an ongoing court case. Since the investigation of Fast and Furious has not been concluded, the latter is not in play. What is it that obama wishes to hide from America? Perhaps, the outright distortion of the truth by holder and his underlings or could it be that obama was complicit in the failed gun running scheme that lead to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry. If executive privilege is invoked, we must conclude that the “executive” in this case obama, read or had knowledge of the scheme and some of the thousands of documents holder refuses to release.
Or could this be just another reason to take the American public’s mind off his own incompetency. Could this be just another example of Chicago thuggery as learned on the streets as a “community organizer/rabble-rouser”? obama’s so-called brilliant mind continues to compete with the street sense acquired in Indonesia, Occidental College and the acorn like garbage with whom he was and is associated, when important decisions requiring honesty, transparency and competent leadership are paramount.
Hopefully, this invoking of executive privilege will be the straw that brings down this administration. obamaGATE!
