<quoted text> You still have not responded to Holder being the one who ordered the flawed gun running operation stopped.
perhaps you have a problem reading and comprehending the written English language. Here it is again:(and this happened AFTER Holder goes to Mexico and discussed this very operation with the Mexican government)
Let me add to the erroneous information you were indoctrinated with:
The previous operation used 300 weapons, all fitted with GPS devices, and the federal agents were ordered to track the weapons and seize them before the weapon entered Mexico. Over 90 percent were recovered.
Eric Holder increased that number to 2000, ordered that no GPS be used to track the weapons, ordered the weapons to not be tracked and seized before entering Mexico. None were recovered. That's a ZERO success rate.
In short, Bush was conducting a +90% successful sting operation.
Eric Holder was just running guns for Mexican drug cartels.
... and some poor government worker just doing what he's told to do got scapegoated by Holder.
Holder ran a minimum of 2000 guns for Mexican drug cartels.

2006....

NATIONAL SECURITY LETTERS....Earlier today, ABC News reported that the federal government was "tracking" the phone calls of reporters who were suspected of talking to leakers. Here's what's apparently going on:

The FBI acknowledged late Monday that it is increasingly seeking reporters’ phone records in leak investigations.“It used to be very hard and complicated to do this, but it no longer is in the Bush administration,” said a senior federal official.

....Officials say the FBI makes extensive use of a new provision of the Patriot Act which allows agents to seek information with what are called National Security Letters (NSL). The NSLs are a version of an administrative subpoena and are not signed by a judge. Under the law, a phone company receiving a NSL for phone records must provide them and may not divulge to the customer that the records have been given to the government.

The FBI is now harrassing reporters in a way that previously required the consent of a judge — which usually wasn't given except as a "last resort." NSLs, by contrast, are issued by the FBI itself. There. Is. No. Oversight. At. All.

"It used to be very hard and complicated to do this, but it no longer is in the Bush administration,"
who knew? FOX?
The Constitution says the opposite. How about we read a quote from the Constitution:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

For those who don't know what the definition of "is" is, this means the government cannot read your email without a warrant.
Anyone who has ever read the Constitution can tell you this.

Besides the last three are not governments that support terrorism, I don't think. They are states with terrorism in them. You reading comprehension does you in again.


The last I looked, we are not invading Yemen, Libya & other North African countries. We conduct strikes against terrorist camps or other targets & use drones.

That is not an invasion.

We went into Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.

I can't believe you right whiners can't admit that.

Bush told the Taliban to hand over the terrorists (Bin Laden) or else. He was not handed over. We invaded.

So tell me again how we didn't invade Afghanistan to get Bon Laden???

What’s hard to figure out is why the United States would choose to follow Israel’s path. Yet over the course of the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama quarter-century, that’s precisely what we’ve done. The pursuit of global military dominance, a proclivity for preemption, a growing taste for assassination—all justified as essential to self-defense. That pretty much describes our present-day MO.

Israel is a small country with a small population and no shortage of hostile neighbors. Ours is a huge country with an enormous population and no enemy, unless you count the Cuban-Venezuelan Axis of Ailing Dictators, within several thousand miles. We have choices that Israel does not. Yet in disregarding those choices the United States has stumbled willy-nilly into an Israeli-like condition of perpetual war, with peace increasingly tied to unrealistic expectations of adversaries and would-be adversaries acquiescing in Washington’s will.

The Diminishing Returns of Republican “Pro-Israel” Politics

Romney’s frequent declarations that there would be “not an inch” of difference between the U.S. and Israel under his administration summed up the ridiculous degree of “pro-Israel” fervor that Republican politicians in particular now feel obliged to express. It has already become commonplace to acknowledge that there is a growing partisan gap in opinion polls on U.S. Israel policy. A Pew survey from the start of this year found the gap to be very wide:

You’ll notice that Republican sympathy with Israel started skyrocketing at the start of the last decade and has now climbed to an all-time high. What Republicans consistently keep missing is that all of this is gradually working to their disadvantage. Part of this comes from ignoring the fact that most Americans now tend to recoil from knee-jerk hawkishness in general, but it’s also a result of grossly overestimating how popular the status quo on Israel policy is. As Republicans become more resolutely and uniformly a party of “pro-Israel” hawks, they are separating themselves more and more from the rest of the country. As they are on other issues, Republicans are increasingly at odds the views of younger voters, who are more likely to sympathize with neither side or even take a more “pro-Palestinian” view of the conflict:

American sympathy for Israel is real enough (especially when contrasted with general lack of sympathy with Israel’s neighbors), but it doesn’t translate into broad support for extremely one-sided U.S. backing of Israel. Polls have consistently found that a large majority believes that the U.S. shouldn’t take sides in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It was an article of faith endorsed by members of both parties during Hagel’s confirmation hearing that Israel is an extremely important ally, but most Americans don’t perceive Israel as an ally at all. As new cohorts of voters begin participating more regularly in elections, Republicans will find that their increasingly hard-line “pro-Israel” position has taken them into a political cul-de-sac.

HOT AIR LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

I say keep those congressional hearings coming. The GOP will overplay their hand, and most Americans have a pretty dim view of the GOP Congress already.
You really think a normal, middle class, non- FOX loon cares about any of this? Think again.
As soon as there is the next shiny new distraction ( OJ back in court, a kidnapping, another building collapsing) or we have the next mass shooting,all of this goes away in the mainstream media.
Polling already confirms that a large majority trust Hillary and Obama more than the GOP on everything.
