I have been writing on other forums, (POLITICAL and News) over the past few weeks. Most of my work has been comparing F&F with Watergate.
I see the Obama Administration using the same arguments and tactics that Nixon used in his defense of Watergate.
With the claim of Executive Privilege, My belief that the White House was deeply involved in the F&F operation has been strengthened.
To me it is inconceivable that the disparate and often conflicted agency's needed to allow this operation to proceed could have reached agreement without "adult supervision from the President." Those agencies include, but not limited to, the AG, Sect of State and Sect of Homeland Security. The AG had to be involved to get the FBI on board with the ATF.
