"Useful to space buffs and generalists, comprehensive but readable, Bob Zimmerman's Encyclopedia belongs front and center on everyone's bookshelf." -- Mike Collins, Apollo 11 astronaut

 

"The Chronological Encylopedia of Discoveries in Space is no passionless compendium of information. Robert Zimmerman's fact-filled reports, which cover virtually every spacecraft or probe to have ventured into the heavens, relate the scientific and technical adventure of space exploration enthusiastically and with authority." -- American Scientist

    When Bush invoked this to protect Karl Rove it was on the assertion that his contact with the Justice Department was as a member of the Whitehouse executive staff. And thus his conversations could be protected.

    Who in the Whitehouse was Holder or the Justice department contacting and thus needs protection?

    So far Holder keeps saying that the Whitehouse had nothing other than a cursory knowledge of the program and had no real knowledge of anything more than just its name and purpose.

    With the Whitehouse exerting this protection its obvious they knew FAR FAR more than just the name and reason for the program. They would have no need to protect anyone if they didn’t know exactly what was going on and gave their FULL presidential backed consent.

    I have to ask one extra thing.
    Why would Mexican immigrants ever re-elect a president and by extension their justice department that would purposefully sell weapons and ammo into Mexico knowing full well that they were destined for criminals who have previously shown they were willing to kill anyone to gain what they wanted?
    Why elect those willing to let your own family be murdered? In fact working towards it for political reasons. What would that group be willing to do inside the boarders of the US just for political gain?
