Attorney General Holder’s testimony referred to briefing paper prepared for Attorney General Mukasey in advance of a November 16, 2007 meeting with the Mexican attorney general … As we explained in a letter to Chairman Issa on March 16, 2012, and as you note, this briefing paper concerned the case of Fidel Hernandez, not Wide Receiver as the Attorney General inadvertently stated at the hearing.”

Not protecting Holders career. And instead of desperately trying as usual to blame Bush we should be trying to find out why these Guns were lost and who murdered these 2 LEO's, not trying to deflect from Obama or Holder. time to own up like men.
