Todd Beamer's Dad Wants To Know

Mr. Holder said that he and his boss had not spoken in person about this decision. This matter only involves upholding the constitutional rights of Americans, establishing a precedent with battlefield impact, and the safety and security of our citizens in a time of war. What are the criteria to make something a priority with President Barack Obama? How can it be that this matter didn't make the cut?

RTWT. But seriously: we all know that claim has to be a lie, but how could Obama & Holder think it would be a good defense?
