The Right Planet
You know, every once in while—while I’m “scouring the bowels of the internet”—I stumble on something that just really knocks my little right-winger socks off.
Just about every day I visit Doug Ross’ blog. He’s does, in my opinion, a great job at quickly coalescing, categorizing and aggregating a lot of conservative-libertarian leaning articles and reports, as well as many other news sources.
Well, today, like any other day, I jumped over to Doug’s blog and I see this headline: GREAT NEWS: I Made the White House Enemies List:
After using executive privilege to withhold Fast and Furious records for two years, the Obama administration has quietly stopped exerting the power to hide information about the disastrous gun-running operation.
Judicial Watch attorneys discovered the extraordinary about-face in recent exchanges with Department of Justice (DOJ). JW has been a leader in exposing the Fast and Furious scandal and has filed several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the federal agencies involved in the once-secret operation. Just last month JW obtained records showing that the president’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the Fast and Furious cover-up and that Obama exerted executive privilege for Holder’s wife and mother to conceal emails with the Attorney General involving the operation.
