…and evidence emerges that the White House approved it, though Obama has denied all knowledge of either him or Holder approving it. Yet in a March 24th, 2009 news conference, the deputy attorney general announced the program authorized by AG Holder (see video below), clearly describing its operations.  Obama may be able to wriggle out of this, but it appears that Holder knew about this program from its beginning.  Holder needs to go.
