Obama asserts executive privilege on Fast and Furious documents - CNN.com Just one more example of how 'they' are better than you and I. Had any of us let a weapon wind up in the hands of criminals who killed federal agents we'd be crucified but since the ATF was 'in charge' they will walk again. Ruby Ridge, Waco and now this. How many more times will the govt continue protecting this dept? How many more times will the American populace accept the practices of ATF? I do believe though that any president democrat or republican would be doing the same. It is just an effort to cover up the horrible truth once again.
