Where does he find the time? Between making an ass of himself in front of congress and ignoring subpoenas, Eric Holder will now be the man in charge of investigating the high level national security leaks threatening our lives and our relationships with our allies.
What a perfectly splendid choice!
Surely no one could accuse Mr. Holder of being anything but the most non partisan of dedicated law enforcement officials. Which is precisely why congress has finally had their fill of his antics and will be at long last launching a vote on whether Holder is in contempt of congress or not.
Who could we possibly trust more to hunt down the leakers and take them to justice? The smart money is on the guy who mops the floors in the mens’ rooms at the White House.
Watch for Holder to try to persecute the field operatives and try to pin the leaks on them to protect the White House. In reality, sensitive information is given on a strictly Need to Know basis. An operative in the field, those would be the guys out their risking their necks all the time, know only what they actually need to know to complete their missions. Not a single detail more or less than that.
The kind of detailed information that has been purposely distributed far and wide could only have come from sources pretty high up in the food chain who are not out their risking life and limb.
The political motivation is self explanatory, despite the stinging blow to Mr. Obama’s delicate sensibilities at the mere suggestion that he may be in on the leaking. This would be the same Obama who happily handed classified CIA documents over to a movie producer. The most optimistic among use could, in a particularly generous moment, accuse Obama of at least having terrible judgement.
His idiot lackey is the last person who should have access to this investigation. If ever there was a case crying out for a special prosecutor, this is the one.
