The poor Daily Caller.
The conservative news website, which is bent on bashing Atty. Gen.
Eric Holder Jr., couldn’t get the former Attorney Gen. Ed Meese to do
the same, despite attempts. The website tried to get Meese to trash
Holder or others in the Justice Department in connection with the flawed
ATF operation known as Fast and Furious that let guns walk into Mexico
with the hopes of tracing them to the cartels.
“Well I have not commented on it because unless you’re actually there
in the Department of Justice knowing everything that went on, it’s very
hard to comment on it,” Meese told TheDC. “We all know that it was,
that it came to ruin, if you will, that it didn’t work out as it had
been anticipated certainly and that there were a lot of problems with
it, very serious problems, tragic problems in one case. But, more than
that, I don’t know other than what I read in the newspapers so I can’t
really comment in detail on it.”
Apparently, the fact that a Republican attorney general wouldn’t
trash Holder or others in the Justice Department without knowing all the
facts must have come as a surprise to the Daily Caller.
