Who is the president hiding?

I have followed the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal investigation since it began.

At first, President Barack Obama tried to blame “unscrupulous gun dealers” along our southern border. We wouldn’t have known any differently had it not been for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent John Dodson. Dodson testified that someone in our government forced gun dealers to sell assault weapons to known straw purchasers who had ties to Mexican drug cartels.

Guns from this fiasco have turned up at many crime scenes, including the one in which a Border Patrol agent was killed. Some testified on Capitol Hill that more than 1,000 weapons still unaccounted for will cause problems for at least another 10 years.

We don’t know who authorized this mess. Not one government employee has been fired over it. Attorney General Eric Holder has testified he never discussed Fast and Furious with President Obama. Why, then, did Obama claim executive privilege? Who is he hiding?
