Who Are You Going To Believe, Eric Holder, or Your Own Lying Eyes?

The forcible removal of Elian Gonzalez from his relatives in Miami gives us another great moment in Eric Holder’s history, of giving straight, truthful answers about controversial subjects:

Eric Holder, the deputy attorney general, appeared on Fox News a few hours after the raid that morning. Judge Andrew Napolitano accused the Justice Department of taking the child at gunpoint. Mr. Holder denied the charge. What he didn’t realize was that he was appearing on a split screen, the other half showing the Alan Diaz photo. “Not taken at gunpoint?” an incredulous Napolitano shot back. “Have you seen the photograph?”

The description of the exchange comes from The View from the Grass Roots, by Gregory J. Rummo, pg. 367.
