Please watch this video beginning at the 1:20 mark where Eric Holder explained yesterday that the motivation to seize Associated Press communications records was based upon “A very-very serious leak. Among the most serious leaks – it put American people at risk.”
Now read the following excerpt from White House Spokesman Jay Carney explaining WHEN Barack Obama learned of the Associated Press-Department of Justice communications scandal:
Q When did the President find out about the Department of Justice’s subpoenas for the Associated Press?
MR. CARNEY: Yesterday. Let me just be clear. We don’t have any independent knowledge of that. He found out about the news reports yesterday on the road. LINK
So please now consider this reader – the Attorney General of the United States of America publicly informs the media that there was such a significant threat to American security that it required the Department of Justice to revoke the First Amendment rights of a significant media source.
And yet, despite that significant threat to American security, the White House then indicates Barack Obama HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THAT THREAT or the attempt to remedy that threat. That he in fact just learned of his own Department of Justice’s potentially illegal actions against the Associated Press.
The Obama White House is placing lies atop lies now at such a pace they cannot even coordinate them on a daily basis.
Either Barack Obama did in fact know of his DOJ’s actions against the media, and then had his administration lie about it, or he has an administration that does not even bother to inform him of a significant threat to the United States…
