He is a Muslim and a tool for the Saudis. I know people who do business in Africa at a high level and the execs and govt people in Africa all have he is a Muslim. The Saudi money bought him the election.

At least W wasn't a Muslim, AFAIK.

Holder, you have absolutely no credibility with anyone who knows your background. How much money have you made being legal counsel for terrorists? But holder is more than ready to punish Americans who have done nothing. Never let a crisis go by without enacting laws against US citizens hey Holder? With Holder if you are a upstanding citizen,pay your taxes and don't defraud consumers, if you are frightened small child, or a person harmed by a terrorist, you have no rights that will not be taken away.

Pay attention to what Holder says has done more harm than good when his actions and those of Clintons, we are still dealing with the same terrorists today. We are dealing with a weather underground terrorist who is trying to rewrite history that he never did anything harmful. Yes, Holder, more harm and than good you are.

After terrorists struck with box cutters on 9/11, Mr. Holder responded with an op-ed arguing for “background checks on all gun sales,”

Lawyer For The Death Squad Terrorists" 600 families of murder and torture victims that seek damages against Chiquita for providing material support to a terrorist organization, the AUC. Chiquita was instrumental in facilitating the illegal importation of 3,000 AK-47 machine guns and 5 million rounds of ammunition through its private port in Colombia.Chiquita funded terror to kill labor organizers in order to keep down labor costs. After seven years of lining the pockets of terrorists, Chiquita admitted their wrongdoing to the Justice Department and hired and extremely influential man to bail them out, former deputy attorney general, Eric Holder.

According to court documents Holder wanted the case dismissed, because, quote,

"There is no clearly defined rule of international law prohibiting material support of terrorism."

Washington, DC-based law firm Covington & Burling (C&B), where Holder was a partner, was representing 17 Yemeni detainees (and one Pakistani national) in Guantanamo Bay. A notable former client of Holder's firm was yet another Guantanamo detainee, from Kuwait, The aforementioned Kuwaiti was released from Guantanamo in 2005 and promptly resumed his terrorist activities. In March 2008 he blew himself up with a truck bomb in Mosul, Iraq, killing 13 Iraqi army soldiers and wounding 42 others.

Holder was also intimately involved in President Clinton's August 11, 1999 pardon of 16 members of the FALN, acronym for the Armed Forces of National Liberation—a violent terrorist organization. House committee report: "The 16 terrorists appear to be most unlikely candidates. They did not personally request clemency. They did not admit to wrongdoing and they had not renounced violence before such a renunciation had been made a quid pro quo for their release. Overall, the White House(Holder) appears to have exercised more initiative than the terrorists themselves."

Holder also played a role in the pardon granted to Marc Rich, a fugitive oil broker who had illegally purchased oil from Iran during the American trade embargo -- and who then proceeded to hide more than $100 million in profits by using dummy transactions in off-shore corporations. Rich later renounced his American citizenship and fled to Switzerland to avoid prosecution for 51 counts of racketeering, wire fraud, tax fraud, tax evasion, and the illegal oil transactions with Iran.

Holder was a key figure entrusted with the task of vetting the Clinton administration's 176 last-minute pardons (that would benefit his library) in January 2001. The beneficiaries of those pardons included such notables as former Weather Underground members Susan Rosenberg (who was involved in the deadly 1981 armed robbery of a Brink's armored car) and Linda Evans (who had used false identification to buy firearms, harbored a fugitive, and was in possession of 740 pounds of dynamite at the time of her arrest in 1985).

Cornyn and Sen. Tom Coburn said Holder was hostile to the right of individuals to own guns, despite a Supreme Court ruling last June affirming the right to have weapons for self-defense in the home.

Holder said at his confirmation hearings: "I understand that the Supreme Court has spoken." But he added that some restrictions on guns could still be legal. And then of course back in the Clinton Administration days, Eric Holder was a big fan of using force... not against terrorists, but against a 6 year old boy and his unarmed family. Eric Holder played a key role in the armed abduction of Elian Gonzalez by an army of border patrol agents with automatic weapons pointed at his head.

Eric Holder lobbied on behalf of Global Crossing, one of the 10 largest corporate bankruptcies since 1980, on a level with Enron and WorldCom. It was the 7th largest filing in American history. While Global Crossing was accumulating debt like mad, its executives were spending like mad, taking tens of millions in personal loans from the company, operating corporate jets, and selling as much inside stock as Enron.

That’s the problem in a nutshell. It was unwise to look at these issues in the context of “do we like and/or trust President Bush43” - the actual question is “do we give up constitutional protects because somebody in government says we ought to?”

I take it further - if we willingly gave up some Constitutional protections because Bush43 or Obama said we had to, would those protections be returned to us in the future. The answer is no. Governments do not willingly give up power once they get it, and we simply cannot risk the removal of those protections because some President tries to tell us we have to.

Bush and Congress put us in a bad position with the PATRIOT Act and everything associated with it, because I truly believe that there are administrations down the road who will try and use the war on terror (or some other war) against the American people.

It may not be now, it may not be 20 years from now, but it will happen. Just look at how many things were done by the government on a "temporary" basis in the early 1900s and how those things kept on growing and growing.
