    Holder to investigate......himself

    that's how it workss in the O administration.
    President Obama is a little uneasy with the way journalists have been dragged into the Justice Department’s aggressive pursuit of national security leak investigations. In fact, he has ordered Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct a 45-day review of the department’s guidelines on the issue.

    That bit of news was buried in the middle of the president’s hourlong speech today at National Defense University.

    “Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs,” President Obama said. “Our focus must be on those who break the law.”

    And then the news: “I have raised these issues with the attorney general, who shares my concern. So he has agreed to review existing Department of Justice guidelines governing investigations that involve reporters, and will convene a group of media organizations to hear their concerns as part of that review. And I have directed the attorney general to report back to me by July 12th.”

    then we learn this: Attorney General Eric Holder personally signed off on the warrant that allowed the Justice Department to search Fox News reporter James Rosen's personal email, NBC News' Michael Isikoff reported Thursday

    .Bottom line is that Holder gets to investigate himself. O knows that the low info voters out there won't notice and we know the left won't care.
