It has been two months since the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform demanded Attorney General Eric Holder provide the Fast and Furious documents and the administration continues to stonewall. If there is nothing to hide then turn the documents over.
The Day's editorial treatment of the matter was shameful. One American border agent murdered, together with countless others and The Day called it a folly, "Fast, furious follies," (June 22). The Day never hesitates to assert freedom of information demands on almost every subject but on this they have no interest. Why did the president wait so long to claim executive privilege? Is he getting nervous?
Why didn't the attorney general give the documents to the congressional committee months ago? Is he getting nervous? Is there any good reason for not turning over the papers?
The editorial claimed that Fast and Furious barely registered on the relevance meter for most Americans. Did The Day ask the parents of the slain border agent what it meant to them?
A political cartoon June 24 made a joke of Fast and Furious, comparing it to car racing. What a dishonor to those who died.
Does anyone wonder what The Day would have done if this happened under a Republican administration?
