There is something that could be much more dangerous to the nation than the apparent lies the administration continues to cover up. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano claims to have known nothing about the release of hundreds of illegal aliens from the custody of her bureaucracy, while the top law-enforcement officer of the nation, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., swears he knows nothing about his own agency selling semi-automatic rifles to Mexican drug lords, tapping the phones of Associated Press journalists or the Internal Revenue Service targeting patriot groups from coast to coast.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton maintains she knows nothing about why our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was overrun by terrorists, who killed our ambassador, or why she continued with the misinformation about it all being caused by some video. Lately, the head of the IRS, whose agency specifically targeted patriot groups in a nationwide conspiracy, is unable to answer a single question put to him about anything. All while, the president supposedly knew nothing.

What is far more dangerous than the likelihood that all these liars are lying is the prospect that they are telling the truth — and are actually just as uninformed and incompetent as they claim to be. Which is worse, to be governed by liars or to be governed by fools?
