Obama's veil of secrecy is pierced
Topic - Eric H. Holder
When President Obama decided sometime during his first term that he wanted to be able to use unmanned aerial drones in foreign lands to kill people — including Americans.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in "contempt of Congress" — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner.
All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation's security.
In what some have referred to as "fireworks" during a House hearing with Attorney General Eric H. Holder, one of the more important revelations was the exposure of exactly how much literal contempt Mr. Holder actually holds for the American people.
Preet Bharara, the U.S. prosecutor who last week indicted anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza on campaign finance charges, is the snapping jaws of Attorney General Eric H. Holder's junkyard attack dog and the velvet fixer of President Obama’s thorniest political problems.

Holder.
She wrote: "The Alice-in-Wonderland nature of this pronouncement is not lost on me; but after careful and extensive consideration, I find myself struck by a paradoxical situation in which I cannot solve a problem because of contradictory constraints and rules — a veritable Catch-22. I can find no way around the thicket of laws and precedents that effectively allow the Executive Branch of our Government to proclaim as perfectly lawful certain actions that seem on their face incompatible with our Constitution and laws, while keeping the reason for their conclusion a secret."
He argued that the legal rationale for the presidential use of extrajudicial killings was a state secret, and he dispatched Department of Justice lawyers to court, where they succeeded in persuading a federal judge in New York City to deny The New York Times' application to order the government's legal rationale revealed.
