Just like Behngazi (sp?).

I fully agree. The problem is that Obama is claiming executive privilege preventing all the facts from "showing up." Not that the beans aren't already well spilled. It's uncontroversial that the Obama admin ran this operation through the ATF, and that Brian Terry was killed with a gun that was part of the operation.
On June 20, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted along party lines to recommend that Holder be held in contempt. At issue were 1,300 pages of documents that had not been turned over to Congress by the DOJ. Earlier that day, President Obama had invoked executive privilege over those documents, marking the first time the privilege has been asserted during his presidency. Mr. Issa contends that the Obama executive privilege claim is a cover-up or an obstruction to the congressional probe. Mr. Issa said the department has identified "140,000 pages of documents and communications responsive to the committee's subpoena."
