    Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.

    Judicial Watch had filed, on June 22, 2012, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious and “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.”

    The administration has refused to comply with Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, and in mid-September the group filed a lawsuit challenging Holder’s denial. That lawsuit remains ongoing but within the past week President Barack Obama’s administration filed what’s called a “motion to stay” the suit. Such a motion is something that if granted would delay the lawsuit indefinitely.

    Fast and Furious and the name Eric Holder will disappear into the wood work and conveniently be forgotten by the press and the administration.

    In the mean time the law abiding citizen will slowly be disarmed and the second amendment will go the way of gold and silver currency (required by the Constitution).

    The guilty go free (and will probably be promoted) while the law abiding citizen is denied his/her constitutional rights.

    Did you expect anything less than utter hypocrisy from this admin?
