Will we ever get tired of the Obama Administration’s inability to take responsibility for their actions?
Summed up very nicely this way:
I don’t think for a moment the denizens of the imperial capital care what does and does not pass the laugh test in the provinces, but the Republicraises some good points. The Inspector General may find it “troubling that a case of this magnitude, and one that affected Mexico so significantly was not directly briefed to the Attorney General,” but some of us find it completely freaking preposterous. Either Holder (and Mukasey, before him) knew about these operations and are being given a thorough whitewashing in the report, or else the U.S. Attorney General has lost control of whole sections of his department — whole armed, tax-funded sections that are dealing in weapons and operating in neighboring countries.
An either-or choice between deceitful bastard and incompetent figurehead should not be read as an exoneration.
They are still blaming Bush for this, too.
