Fox News is reporting that the White House has approved AG Eric Holder's request to protect Fast and Furious documents under executive privilege.If there was nothing to hide, why has Attorney General Eric Holder gone to such extremes to hide the documents about their plan to give guns to Mexican drug lords? With Obama now asserting executive privilege, the story many in the media refused to report suddenly becomes a much bigger issue. This is not going to end well for Obama or Holder.
Holder has refused to turn over specific documents to House Oversight Committee Chairman Issa, despite a deadlines and a looming vote to hold him in contempt. The contempt hearing is expected to proceed as scheduled.
So, does anyone in the mainstream media have the guts to be Woodward or Bernstein for "Fast and Furious"? Or will they just roll over like they have on every other story?
