The Department of Justice sent a letter to the Associated Press on Tuesday, which was provided to TPM, saying that it acted within the law when subpoenaing the phone records of AP journalists as part of a criminal investigation.
"The subpoenas were limited to a reasonable period of time and did not seek the content of any calls," DOJ Deputy Attorney General James Cole wrote to AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt. "In addition, these records have been closely held and reviewed solely for the purposes of this ongoing criminal investigation. The records have not been and will not be provided for use in any other investigations."
"We strive in every case to strike the proper balance between the public's interest in the free flow of infomation and the public's interest in the protection of national security and effective enforcement of our criminal laws. We believe we have done so in this matter."

How many Afghani citizens participated in 9-11?
But hey, first we have a flock of right whiners say we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was not there.
& now we have you declaring that Afghanistan attacked us.
Al Qaeda had camps in Sudan & Yemen, why wasn't it Yemen & Sudan that attacked us?
In case you don't know who lives in Afghanistan, the Taliban lives there. bin Laden set up his headquarters there. The vast majority of jihadists were being trained there.
Assuming you aren't one of the most ignorant people in the world, what is your next question? Or, is it necessary to explain who controlled the government of Afghanistan to you?

DETROIT — A Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after federal agents said he lied about why he was traveling with a pressure cooker, but his nephew said Monday that it was all a misunderstanding about a device he simply wanted for cooking.

Two pressure cookers were used in last month's Boston Marathon bombings.

Hussain Al Khawahir was being held in Detroit on allegations of lying to Customs and Border Protection agents and of using a passport with a missing page. He was arrested Saturday.

In 2009 Holder went to Mexico and discussed this very program with the Mexican government. After Holder's discussions with the government of Mexico, Holder ordered the GPS tracking devices previously used to track the guns not be used. After Holder's discussions with the government of Mexico, Holder ordered the guns not be intercepted before they entered Mexico. After Holder's discussions with the government of Mexico, Holder increased the number of guns in the program from 300 to 2000.
After the public became aware of Eric Holder running guns for the Mexican drug cartels, Holder fired some government workers that were only doing what they were ordered to do.
Wow, you mean that we were working with the Mexican government to find out who was buying all the guns being smuggled into Mexico and break up that aspect?

I guess those dumbass drug lords were too stupid to know some guns had GPS tracking.

Here's some stuff on another past president:
Republicans are beside themselves. They’re “shocked” that President Obama still remains in the White House after their made up Benghazi “scandal” backfired, and now there’s this IRS situation—which the President has come out and quickly denounced (and had nothing to do with).
Who cares if neither of these issues warrants an impeachment, Republicans are beginning to demand that the subject be mentioned. To them, Obama has been the worst, and most corrupt, President in United States history.
It’s easy to see why they feel this way: they watch Fox News. That entire network builds its platform on “Obama is scary because…”
But,“What if Obama’s first 4 years were almost identical to George W. Bush’s first 4 years?”
Just imagine if during President Obama’s first term:
*He’s “elected” President when the United States Supreme Court overrules Florida’s Supreme Court call for a statewide recount, thus becoming President of the United States—even though he lost the popular vote.
*8 months after he took office we experienced the worst terrorist attack in United States history, and there was solid evidence presented that he had intelligence saying that a terrorist group was planning on attack on United States soil—but did nothing.
*Video was shown of his reaction to being told that the United States was under attack, and he sat there for a few minutes with a blank look on his face—doing nothing.
*Our economy went from a balanced budget, and a budget surplus, back to deficits—every year he had been President.
*The longest period of economic growth in American history—came to an end.
*We started a war with Iraq. About 2 months after the start of the war he then decided to land on an aircraft carrier (in a flight suit) to declare “Mission Accomplished.” Yet 2 years later, over 2,000 American soldiers had died and not a single weapon of mass destruction had been found.
*4 years after the 9/11 attack, Osama bin Ladin had still not been captured.
*Reports, and photos, of abuse by the U.S. Army against Iraqi prisoners surfaces at the Abu Ghraib prison.
*We saw 5 different attacks on American embassies.
*Attorney General John Ashcroft appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss the first leaked pieces coming to light of communication within the intelligence community about the authorization of torture on prisoners of war to extract information (Bush later admitted he authorized torture and would do it again).
*Told Iraqi insurgents to “Bring it on.”
And that’s not even everything. Those are just a few “bullet points” from Bush’s first 4 years as President.
They weren't appalled, shocked or disgusted …. they re-elected him!
Everyone can quit watching Fox news now, the rest of the media is covering Obamaishitgate.

You're still an idiot Patrick...

The foreign policy of the Bill Clinton administration was the foreign policy of the United States from 1993 to 2001 under the Administration of President Bill Clinton. Clinton's main foreign policy advisors were Secretaries of State Warren Christopher and Madeleine Albright and National Security Advisors Anthony Lake and Sandy Berger.

President Clinton assumed office shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union and end of the Cold War, but nevertheless was forced to confront numerous international conflicts. Shortly after taking office, Clinton had to decide whether the United States, as a world superpower, should have a say in the conflicts and violence occurring in Somalia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Haiti.

Clinton also spent much of his foreign policy on the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, East Timor, Northern Ireland, and the Middle East, with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular.

New poll shows that 41% of Republicans think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in history! The same poll shows that 40% of those Republicans have no idea where Benghazi is.

a Recent poll shows that 40% of Americans don't know that ObamaCare is the law now.

a majority of these 40-plus percent voted for Obama (if they voted at all):

A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”

The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.

“Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says,“including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”

The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.

Will Democrats from Obama on down immediately call for an all-out public awareness campaign reminding this 42 percent that the inexpensive and high quality health care that was promised them in 2008 is finally available by law — and millions will soon face a health care penalty “tax”?

There’s a better chance Joe Biden will finish the rest of the year without saying anything stupid. Heading into 2014, the above polling data is good news for the Democrats. Four out of ten people don’t know Obamacare is the law, and therefore aren’t expecting anything yet, which could translate to less angry backlash for the botched implementation:

Anxious Democrats fear a botched implementation of ObamaCare could dash their hopes of controlling the House and Senate for President Obama’s last two years in office.

At his press conference Tuesday, Obama acknowledged “glitches and bumps” in the law’s rollout, but some congressional DEMOCRATS FEAR MUCH WORSE.

One high-ranking Democrat told The Hill that it is his leading concern.

The Dems number one focus will be to DELAY THE INEVITABLE TRAIN WRECK until after 2014 while figuring out a way to blame it on Republicans.

The guns had GPS while Bush was in office. Operation Wide Receiver. That ended. In October 2009 Obama started Fast and Furious, those guns had no GPS.
I know you want to blame Bush for O'bama taking a crap most days, but it is doesn't work that way. Does O'bama eat because it is Bush's fault too?
