President Obama and members of his cabinet have so far managed to dodge full and total responsibility for several major mistakes. To name two: "Deadly Benghazi Attack" “Fast & Furious”. Now the Justice Department topper says he was not involved in his organization's gathering of phone records from more than “20 separate telephone lines assigned to the AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012.”
Finally, out of Washington, DC we are beginning to see a bipartisan response to this disturbing challenge to press freedoms. There are too many questions and very few credible answers.
Some of the political leaders who are demanding answers are US House speaker Boehner, “they better have a damned good explanation.” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Democrat Patrick Leahy, “very troubled” by these allegations.
What is going on with US political leadership? What would Harry Truman be saying? Where does the buck stop?
Our nation's forefathers outlined a clear protection for a free press in the form of the First Amendment to guarantee a free flow of news and information from a source not licensed or controlled by the government. What part of this did they not clearly understand?
