We all know that Attorney General Eric Holder is shielding President Barack Obama from the accountability and ultimate reckoning that will come if he provides Congress with the documents in his possession regarding Operation Fast and Furious. If it became public, Holder might end up doing a stretch in Federal Prison – while Obama can claim immunity in the US. If the Mexicans got a hold of Holder, they could throw him in Amoloya Prison* near Mexico City where he’d spend the rest of his life.

There has been a nagging question. How can a US Attorney General be effective leading the nation’s law enforcement efforts when he has been held in contempt of Congress for “lying”** and failing to provide documents under subpoena?
