Holder: I Ordered Miranda Rights for Underwear BomberAttorney General Eric Holder says he made the decision to read the underwear bomber suspect his Miranda rights — and he’s hammering Republicans for politicizing a practice he says they backed when George W. Bush was in office.
“I made the decision to charge Mr. Abdulmutallab with federal crimes, and to seek his detention in connection with those charges, with the knowledge of, and with no objection from, all other relevant departments of the government,” Holder wrote in a letter to senators Monday.
He called the decision “fully consistent” with precedents set by “administrations of both parties.”
“Those policies and practices, which were not criticized when employed by previous administrations, have been and remain extremely effective in protecting national security,” he said. He didn't of course say he lied, but admitted that it wasn't true. Now he tells us, months after 1) making the promise on multiple occasions, and 2) trying to ram the bill down our throats regardless. Of course, this is just another in a long string of broken promises. From Real Clear Politics via Instapundit, memeorandum: Obama's Stunning Admission. Here's the must-see video:
I haven't seen anyone focus on the President's rather stunning admission about the Democrats' health care legislation (Video):
Obama outright admited he and the Democrats lied about keeping your doctor. How many times has he and his progressive minion say that "we can keep our doctor"? Common sense tells us that can't be true. I'm sure there are a lot more lies hiden within the 2000 pages. This is one more proof that the Democrats will lie to the people of America and sneek in a health care bill that will control us. I'm getting sick and tired of the liberals telling us to just trust the Democrats. We don't even trust our own party and you want us to trust yours? That would be dumb. But when these guys are cought lieing we need to cut that cancer out. We need to expect all of our politicians to tell the truth no matter what letter comes after your name. If you wouldn't have it if your spouse lied to you or your boss. There comes a lose of truts every time the Democrats and Republicans lie. Obama said he would pull out of Iraq in 2009,GITMO he promised would be closed by now,he said they wouldn't torture but only changed the definition,he said he would get the debt down and creat jobs. He said unemployment wouldn't get past 8% it's at 10.4% and he did it by design. He didn't make jobs or the economy his #1 priority. We still have the Partiot Act and a ton of lobiest in his admin. We all have reason to be pissed and we all need to speak up like we did with Bush on his progressive agendas. Thanks to the Democrats and the Republicans we might loose our AAA-rating. Just keep spending like there is no tommorow and there wont be.
