If Eric Holder should or can be prosecuted, W. Bush should be prosecuted and executed for the millions of deaths he caused.
Why do you run things together? Do you think Eric Holder should be prosecuted for letting weapons fall into the hands of Mexican Bandits which resulted in a border agent being killed? Many of those weapons as I read ended up in the Middle East.
I 'run things together' with the hope of clarifying your perspective.
On one hand you want to hold responsible and prosecute a government agency that concocted a scheme that unintentionally failed, and resulted in the death of one American.
On the other hand you don't see why one man, responsible for all of our nations domestic and international, intentionally concocted a scheme that he knew for a fact would end hundreds, if not thousands or American lives, should be held responsible by the same standard for prosecution.
The difference in Eric Holder's actions and it's result, and that of W. Bush's action and it's result is a matter of premeditated intent. Eric Holder did not knowingly and intentionally put thousands of American lives in harms way. W. Bush did.
