    AG Defends Suppressing Petraeus Scandal​




    By: John Semmens
    16 Nov 2012

    Attorney General Eric Holder defended withholding information on the scandal surrounding CIA Director David Patraeus until after the November 6 election.

    “I know there are those who think that they have a right to know everything about what’s going on in their government,” Holder acknowledged. “But those of us on the inside must place the broader national interest ahead of any presumed duty to keep the general public informed.”

    “As is becoming apparent in the post-election revelations, there are serious issues of national security that could affect the people’s confidence in their government,” Holder continued. “If these issues had become publicly known prior to November 6 they could’ve had an irreversible impact on the election outcome. It was our considered judgment to not let voters be stampeded by a knee-jerk reaction to a volatile and transitory chain of events that we felt detracted from the more significant elements of the campaign.”

    Holder argued that “the post-election separation of the offending party from his government post exacts the appropriate measure of justice without disrupting the ability of the Administration to continue its governance for another term. We are confident that history will validate the wisdom of our decision on this matter.”

    He is lying if he claims he didn't tell Obamination, otherwise they are the biggest group of idiots ever in the White House.

    Not telling the boss one of his Top 5 Cabinet members is under investigation by the FBI would be inansity at the highest level. Hell, if Petreaus got arrested by the DC police for DUI around town, that would reach the POTUS within minutes.

    A CEO wouldn't let his underlings investigate his CIO without telling him about it.

    Is this for real? If so, it amazingly honest for a sycophant like Holder.

    Holder being a black man knows he can take the blame for Fast & Furious and Petreaus which is tied to Libya because he is blacker than Obamination and white GOP men can't touch him unless they want to be called RACISTS.

    The game is for everything to stop at Holder so that Obamination can deny everything but nobody in the media will point out that makes him an idiot for not knowing anything about most things going on.

    The question to Obamination is "So is Holder the POTUS, not you? Since you don't know shit about most things going on."

    That's exactly what Oblamer said to Medvedev last year. Guess we can all expect more lying and opacity from the man who originally told Americans that this would be the most transparent administration ever.
