What Did He Know, and When Did He Know It?

Remember, Watergate did not have a body count.  Fast and Furious was a scheme whereby Mexican Drug Gangs were armed with weapons which would kill more than 300 Mexican citizens, and two American citizens including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

From the Daily Caller: "Holder admits Axelrod, White House helped Justice Dept craft Fast and Furious public relations strategy"

From the Article: "We [Holder, Axelrod and the White House] have certainly talked about ways in which we could deal with the interaction between the Justice Department and Congress"

Here, Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that the White House has directly assisted the Department of Justice in how they have addressed the controversy.  Given that Mr. Holder is known to have provided false information to Congress, that would suggest that the White House approves of such lies.

I may have run past that too fast, so let me elucidate.  If Holder was discussing this with David Axelrod, that means Barack Obama almost certainly knows.  Indeed, who else would "The White House" refer too, if not Obama?  If they discussed the situation, only a complete fool (which, I suppose, rules out neither Mr. Obama nor Mr. Axelrod) would not ask for the basic facts of the case.  So one of three possibilities exist:

1) Holder lied to Obama about Fast and Furious.  If this were the case, I would expect that Holder would already have been a speed bump to the Bus Named Obama.

2) Holder told Obama the truth, Obama and Axelrod advised some variation of "coming clean" and Holder chose not to do so.  See #1 for what I believe Obama's reaction would be.

3) Barack Obama knew about Fast and Furious, knew about the death of Brian Terry and either instructed Holder to obfuscate and lie, or was at least on board with that plan.

Given that Mr. Holder has not been thrown under the bus, it seems much more reasonable to believe that Barack Obama conspired to lie to Congressional overseers to protect his cronies and his own political fortunes.  Instead of seeing to it that Brian Terry was given justice, Barack Obama saw to it that his own political aspirations were safeguarded.

This is so far beyond anything Nixon even contemplated doing that it defies comparison.  Eric Holder should be removed from office immediately, and Articles of Impeachment should be drawn up against the President.  He knowingly conspired to prevent those responsible for the death of a US Boarder Patrol Agent from being brought to justice.

Update: In the 3rd Paragraph "...the White House has directly assisted the White House..." has been corrected to "...assisted the Department of Justice..."  Thanks to chic d'afrique

    Should the second "White House" be "DOJ"?

    Oh, and thanks for posting this.
