    Obama relents on Fast & Furious executive privilege, turns records over to Congress

    President Obama had claimed executive privilege in trying to shield the documents from Congress, but a federal judge rejected that, insisting lawmakers had a right to see the information in order to complete their investigation into an operation that saw thousands of guns trafficked into Mexico, with the administration’s knowledge. With just hours to go before the judge’s 60-day deadline, the administration complied Friday.

    UPDATE!!! Brian Terry's Fast & Furious killer arrested in Mexico, on TRUMP's watch.

    "The suspected killer of Brian Terry, the U.S. Border Patrol agent who died in 2010 amid a hail of Fast and Furious fire — the gun-running program brought to U.S. policy shores courtesy of Barack Obama and Eric Holder — was arrested in Mexico.
    And the Drug Enforcement Administration, along with several other U.S. entities, participated in the investigation that led to his arrest.
    Umm, why couldn’t Obama do this during his presidency? [ ... ] And just think. All this could have been done in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 — all years of Obama’s terms.

    While Obama may have indeed "turned over records" relating to Fast and Furious, I very, nay, extremely distrust the accuracy and completeness of what he might be turning over, particularly given the rather long duration (what, EIGHT YEARS) between the event and his incredibly reluctant compliance.

    Dammit, am I actually getting that old that I cannot see 9 pt type?

    No. I can no longer read it on my computer screen when it gets below 6 pt.

    As a (I never really considered myself to be this prior to this point) a "Senior Citizen," here's a thought:

    POST IN 12 point type.

    Are "you" (the entire freaking world) REALLY that clueless that you would attempt to violate senior citizen's right in violation of international law?

    Uh... (quick, look it up...)....

    Duh.
