  •  Perino is trying to get Holder fired (5+ / 0-)

    She noted that Holder didn't disclose and amicus brief that he filed in 2004, and this could be explosive:

    Holder Amicus Brief

    "might impede the investigation of a terrorist offense in some circumstances. It is conceivable that, in some hypothetical situation, despite the array of powers described above, the government might be unable to detain a dangerous terrorist or to interrogate him or her effectively. But this is an inherent consequence of the limitation of Executive power. No doubt many other steps could be taken that would increase our security, and could enable us to prevent terrorist attacks that might otherwise occur. But our Nation has always been prepared to accept some risk as the price of guaranteeing that the Executive does not have arbitrary power to imprison citizens."

    That's going to be politically damaging, nevermind the fact that he's ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.  

    •  I wish such a revelation (0+ / 0-)

      would force the President to defend and advocate for the idea.

      Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
