BREAKING: President Obama Invokes Executive Privilege to withhold Fast and Furious Documents From Congress.

Seriously.

HUNDREDS of Mexican citizens and at least one U.S. Border agent dead, and Eric Holder knows the details, and everyone (the public, or at least the ones who have been TOLD about it from their trusty reporters) wants to know why, but the current administration is hiding the documents from the public. Right before an election.

Question: WIll the liberal main stream media FINALLY get the clue and start asking the tough questions instead of fawning all over him like he’s a rock star?

Nixon also invoked Executive Privilege to withhold the audio tapes from evidence during the Watergate investigation, as did Clinton, at least 14 times during his terms in office. Not to be excluded, the Bush administration also invoked this privilege only 6 times, though the treatment of these incidents were numbered out individually in detail for several long paragraphs by the Wikipedia, while the Clinton administration’s use of the privilege was relegated to a mere four or five sentences.

I trust the update today in this wiki section (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_privilege#Obama_administration) about the Obama administration’s invocation will be expanded to include the details of the Fast and Furious operation and the hundreds of lives that were sacrificed because of it.
