Exclusive: Jack Cashill notes, 'Attorney general has been solving problems for a long time'
"I'm Winston Wolf. I solve problems," so says the professional fixer in Quentin Tarantino's oddball classic, "Pulp Fiction."
In the film, Wolf acknowledges the problem at hand and sets out to solve it, "Now you got a corpse in a car, minus a head, in a garage. Take me to it."
The Obama White House, like the Clinton White House before it, has its own Winston Wolf. His name is Eric Holder, attorney general, and this month's corpse in the car goes by the name "Fast and Furious."
If Holder seems untroubled, it is because he has been solving problems for a long time, starting with his appointment as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia in 1993.
Holder became the Clintons' fixer-in-chief on July 18, 1997, the day he replaced Jamie Gorelick as deputy attorney general.
As reward for her role in solving the TWA Flight 800 problem, Gorelick got the most plum job in Washington, the vice chairmanship of Fannie Mae, a sinecure that would pay her $25.4 million over the next six years.
Holder had to know why the Clintons hired him to replace Gorelick. Like her, he would handle the dirty work they would not trust to Holder's nominal boss, Janet Reno.

Two of the briefs involved appeals to the Supreme Court for Jose Padilla, who sought release from a military prison in South Carolina where he was being held after then President Bush W. Bush declared him an enemy combatant.
No laws, no rule of law. Anarchy. This is so outrageous, it leaves one feeling..... powerless. Raping America. Ethics, morals, the best of America squashed in a stealth coup.
