As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the universitys Black Students Organization as armed, The Daily Caller has learned.
Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed and if so, with what sort of weapon.
Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the Malcolm X Lounge. The change, the group insisted, was to be made in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.
Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.
The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were armed, come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.
Holder, now the United States highest-ranking law enforcement official, has given conflicting accounts of this episode during college commencement addresses at Columbia, but both the BSOs website and the Daily Spectator have published facts that conflict with his version of events.

He’s a pussy! Probably “armed” with a butter knife!
Maybe one of those monster combs.
So I guess he got a 'pass' on all his exams until his junior year? I wonder how that worked.
He could have been a card-carrying Communist and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to almost half of all Americans.
They are your garden-variety anti-American bastard thugs - the whole damn nest of them - the backed up sewerage of the 60’s and beyond.
Well, he pretty much is.
The criminal in chief, Holder. Communist. Violent. Sent 2 more BP agents into the line of fire today, one went to the hospital, the other to the morgue.
