Janet Napolitano has demonstrated once again her inability to be an effective Head of Homeland Security. She claimed to have no prior knowledge of DOJ Eric Holder's scandal, Fast & Furious. Additionally, she admitted to having no telephone contact with the Attorney General since the scandal broke. I'm no Einstein, but isn't that her job? So, if Homeland Security and the Department of Justice don't communicate then who's running this country? Thoughts?
The up side is that at least you're asking the right question. That's always the first step.
But wait...there's more. The DOJ is trying to change the Freedom of Information Act. Currently, any US citizen has the right to ask for documents from the government. If they are classified, the DOJ can black out certain information, or even refuse to produce the documents by stating they are classified. It is then up to the citizen to pursue the document through court. Now, Eric Holder wants to have the ability to just outright lie and issue a response that the documents don't exist, even if they do.
If this outrageous request is granted, it will be the biggest dupe of the century. Imagine the Department of Justice having permission to outright lie to the public.
We've got real problems, people.
I heard this too...so in response to the backlash, the DOJ has postponed their decision to do this until the end of the year. It's time to get America involved in this one. Tell everyone you know this is happening. Research the topic. Stay informed.
Holder is coming back next month to testify in front of Congress. It will be interesting to see how that turns out. We have problems people. Big problems.
Update on Holder and Fast and Furious...Holder is set to appear again on February 2, 2012 to answer more questions. Ca Rep., Darryl Issa said this:
“The Department of Justice’s conduct in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious has been nothing short of shameful. From its initial denials that nothing improper occurred, to efforts to silence whistleblowers who wanted to tell Congress what really happened, to its continuing refusal to discuss or share documents related to this cover-up, the Justice Department has fought tooth and nail to hide the full truth about what occurred and what senior officials knew," Issa said in the statement. "Attorney General Holder must explain or reverse course on decisions that appear to put the careers of political appointees ahead of the need for accountability and the Department’s integrity.”
He should have been forced to resign by now. Something smells.
The banks are running the country AND the world! You can blame the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and Morgans for the demise of humanity! Time to find those assholes and get rid of them.
Btw, so happy to be apart of a group where people actually know who Janet Napalitano is! One of the biggest dumbasses I've ever seen. So disappointed in Obama and his Admin. I hate to say it, but we are all to blame there. The Eric Holder/Napalitano Fast and Furious thing was horrible and the fact that they say they weren't informed means they are covering their asses.They ALL gots to go!
RON PAUL REVOLUTION!!!
