In CNN’s typical style it was weasel-worded to give the gun-walking plot the benefit of the doubt (“botched” raises its head again) and minimized the number of weapons walked (“hundreds, if not thousands”) but at least the hack writing raises the issue to a wider audience.
Washington Times columnist Jeffrey Kuhner suggests this scandal is President Obama’s Watergate. He writes there’s been systematic coverup, and that Holder and his aides are guilty of high crimes including perjury, obstruction of justice and abuse of power.

For his part, Holder insists he’s not going anywhere. In testimony before the Judiciary Committees earlier this month, Holder acknowledged mistakes were made but said he won’t resign. He also said he doesn’t think any of his top aides should step down.
Holder played the race card in an interview with the New York Times. He said some of his critics are motivated by racism, since both he and President Obama are black.
