WASHINGTON, June 11, 2013 – Transparency and accountability are not hallmarks of the Obama administration. When a government operation calls for the distribution of thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and results in the death of a U.S. border patrol agent and at least 200 Mexican citizens, someone better start explaining.

Unfortunately however, Attorney General Eric Holder has skirted responsibility in revealing what he knows about a government sting operation gone tragically wrong. When the nation’s highest law enforcement official perverts his public duty by deceiving the American people instead of protecting them, he must go.

In addition Attorney General Eric Holder should now also be investigated as to whether he committed perjury and Holder’s involvement in approving a search warrant for email and phone records of Fox News reporter James Rosen is being questioned and must be thoroughly investigated by an independent special Council.

While the scandal with the Internal Revenue Service (IRA) targeting conservatives and Tea party groups continue in the news, it should be pointed out what kind of disgrace this is to target conservatives like this just for their conservative beliefs.

With each developing scandal, the picture of an arrogant administration abusing its power grows clearer.

Question are what did Holder Know about he IRS scandal and when did he know it and his involvement in targeting Fox News Reporter James Rosen.

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice has failed to comply with a subpoena issued by House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa that requests all of Mr. Holder’s communications regarding Operation Fast and Furious.

To date, no one has been held accountable for Eric Holder’s debacle, and the Obama administration’s response has been too slow and too infuriating. Eric Holder should have resigned or been fired long ago.
