"What we've got here is... failure to communicate."
A quote from the movie Cool Hand Luke: spoken by The Captain, the imperious warden and by Cool Hand Luke at the conclusion of the film.
Anagnorisis is the moment or instant when ignorance gives way to truth; assumed to be first described by Aristotle in his "Poetics," it along with peripeteia (reversal of fortune) describe Eric Holder's recent encounter with facts and soon justice and perhaps federal prison in Leavenworth.
How poetic, the ancient Greeks so aptly described the present situation Holder created for himself by committing perjury, a crime he would no doubt prosecute against another felon with fast and furious efficiency, but now he is the one who faces prosecution and imprisonment for committing perjury during a congressional hearing.
The race card will be difficult to play effectively and Affirmative Action has run out for Eric Holder. Actually, the race card has been so overplayed by Obama, Holder, and the Congressional Black Caucus, it may have lost all relevance.
New emails indicate that Holder lied during congressional hearings on May 3, in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. During sworn testimony, he stated that he first heard of Operation Fast and Furious "over the last few weeks;" however, he had been briefed in a memo almost a year earlier on July 5, 2010. Actually, he was briefed on the operation in a continuous stream of emails that updated him and other key members of the administration on the progress and relative success of the operation. He was well aware of the fact that thousands of weapons were being bought by the Sinaloa cartel and being carried across the border.
Here is a sample excerpt:
From July 12 through July 16, the National Drug Intelligence Center Document and Media Exploitation Team at the Phoenix Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCTDETF) Strike Force will support the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Phoenix Field Division with its investigation of Manuel Celis-Acosta as part of OCDETF Operation Fast and Furious. This investigation, initiated in September 2009 in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Phoenix Police Department, involves a Phoenix-based firearms trafficking ring headed by Manual Celis-Acosta. Celis-Acosta and [redacted] straw purchasers are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels. They also have direct ties to the Sinaloa Cartel which is suspected of providing $1 million for the purchase of firearms in the greater Phoenix area.
Besides the race card, Holder's defense attorney will surely claim that an AG is overwhelmed with dozens of reports each week and these particular reports escaped his attention because of overwork and incompetence. Ordinarily, in the case of parking tickets and run of the mill political corruption, these three defenses warrant acquittal, but this case is a little different. Two federal agents have been murdered with these weapons that the Obama Administration tried beyond measure and common sense to place in the hands of Narcotics traffickers and killers; their sense of accommodation is to be commended, if only they could have placed such efforts on the economy. There have also been hundreds if not thousands of Mexican nationals killed with these same weapons; yet by a simple plea of incompetence and of overwork, Holder will surely try to distance himself from the mayhem and murder brought about by the Obama plan to arm Mexican Drug gangs.
It will be hard to convince a jury that he missed similar reports every week for a number of months, but he may putting too much faith in the color of his hide if he relies on that defense. It is far more likely that he will turn State's Evidence and give up Napolitano and Obama to avoid a lengthy prison term, but he better move quick, the memos and reports are coming to the surface daily.

I see something like a “Special Mission” to Sarajevo in Holder’s future.
Maybe an Inspection tour of the Solyndra Plant in California?
Maybe he’ll raid the houses of the Sister Wives cast.
These are excuses typically heard in regard to minor accountabilities in a mid-level job.
These are NOT the kinds of excuses you would expect (nor tolerate) from the President or his top cabinet members. That's why they have chiefs of staff, and deputy chiefs of staff, etc.
I don’t think Holder will turn, as long as he can be pardoned by Obama.
However, if Obama faces impeachment and removal, that could change things.
We already know from past history that minions who become a threat to the Democrat Masters usually don’t fare well.
Neither. If the author thinks Obama or Holder will suffer any real consequences from this, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith has something to say to him......
Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream Oooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn...............
Why is this even being discussed or posted or argued? IslamObama and Holder are DEMOCRATS and therefore EXEMPT from our laws.
Or will he end up a victim of the first drug cartel assassination of a top government official in the USA? (Or an "accident"?)
Or, much more likely, will he finish out his term as AG, then write a Conservative-bashing book, then become a Host on MSNBC.
a special meeting at Ft. Marcy Park should solve the problem.....
Holder is counting on getting a jury of “his people”, just like OJ.
The government will get together a Blue Ribbon Commission of Democrats and Republicans which held prior office, and are easily blackmailed and bribed. This Blue Ribbon Commission will examine endless amounts of evidence, ponder endless legal arguments and take extraordinary amounts of time to deliver a complex and befuddling case on why there is no controlling legal authority. Scottish law might even be cited, or the glove might never have fit.
Or maybe the gift of a copy of Ron Browns unpublished autobiography or perhaps a horse's head in his bed when he wakes up.
All Obama has to do is say he wasn't told or didn't understand.
The way things have been going, when Obama says he didn't know or didn't understand what his own administration was doing, people will believe it.
I seem to recall that the "busy" excuse did not work for Scooter Libby!
Hope they don't create a bigger news story to redirect the media cycle.
Rush mentioned the MSM is actually talking about this now? Color me shocked.
I figured they would support the Baraqqi regime to the death.
Holder should have taken a page out of the Clinton playbook. When asked potentially embarrassing questions under oath the proper reply is ALWAYS: “I don’t recall.”
Nothing will happen other than some reports in the press, a few hearing (maybe), and a bunch of furious blog posts. The rule of law is effectively dead for the most part in the US, and the law won’t be enforced against the first “black” AG or the first “black” President. Even TOTUS will be safe ;-)
Rush, himself, has barely been talking about this. He has only begun to give it prominence BECAUSE the MSM has finally been forced to talk about it.
Love Drudge and Rush, but BOTH have been behind the curve on this. One has to ask oneself why.
I smell a presidential pardon..
wasn’t it Brown who ended up with a 45 size hole in his head when his sarajevo plane went down...Holder better find someplace to hide...
>I smell a presidential pardon..
If that happened there should be OUTRAGE, and lots of it, regardless of party.
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.
I think that smell is coming from Holder’s finger.
I believe Holder gets impeached next year. It will put 17 rat ssenators going for re-election in a bind.
If the Clintons were still in charge he would die in a plane crash.
Yeah, Biden drinks a lot.
Fact is Joe is a serious drunk

If you had to hang around DC, wouldn’t you be too? ;)
Actually I lived in D.C. And worked at the pentagon for two years.
Loads of fun, opportunity for protest,the museums and splendor but fortunately I got out.

How was it then?
I just imagine it’s an awful place, historical curios & such excepted, especially considering all the crap that comes out of there.
I worked a rotating shift and got lots of three and four days off in a row.
The Smithsonian alone is worth at least a day a week.
The Art, History,AirAndSpace, Zoo,etc then through in all the free concerts on like the 4th etc.
Then in the military I could go to like Pautexant navel airbase and go sailing for free.
Across the freeway from the pentagon was an old Marine supply depot I played tennis and used a huge pool for zero.
Rock creek, and a million old battle fields around,
There is an old canal on rock creek.
Visitors would come and u can’t believe the tours we gave.
Fun place but get out in time.
