Eric Holder has now said explicitly that neither he nor any other official in “the upper levels of the Justice Department” knew about Gunwalker. He must have a pretty narrow definition of “upper levels” since the Assistant Attorney General was briefed, as were the heads of the FBI and DEA.
Nevertheless, I think it’s good that he has made an unequivocal statement at least in regards to himself. If he does turn out to have been briefed, as seems very likely (his Chief of Staff was briefed), he’ll be nailed.
Also, Investor’s Business Daily takes a look a look at Dan Restrepo, the National Security Council’s top man for Latin America, who was briefed on Gunwalker. He’s quite a piece of work. (Via Instapundit.)
