It is also interesting that Mr. Obama hasnt simply ordered Mr. Holder to release these documents nor does anyone seem to be pressing Mr. Obama to do so.
I could be wrong, but I suspect that President Obamas hasn't "ordered" Holder to release the documents in quesstion for 2 reasons:
1. He might be worried concerning exactly what these documents might show, as with who knew what and when, as well as who is actually responsible for what.
2. The second possibility is the following. Holder, as others have noted, feels he is above the law. That being the cxaase, he migfht tell the president to, as is sometimes mentioned in Westrern Pennsylvania, to "Go Pound Salt", a comment that would certainly prove interesting.
