Meet your new Attorney General

I was surprised this morning to see that the LAT had published this opinion piece by Joseph F. Connor, whose father was killed by FALN terrorists. Why was I surprised? Well...

At the time of the pardons, Eric H. Holder Jr. was deputy attorney general. In considering his department's recommendation on clemency, he met with supporters of the terrorists but ignored their victims. He pushed staff members to drop their strong opposition to a presidential pardon for the FALN members and alter a report they had prepared for the president recommending against clemency. Today, although two turned down their pardons because they were unwilling to renounce violence, many of the convicted FALN members walk free. And a man who was instrumental in their release may become the highest law enforcer in the land.
That's right. The guy who's about to become our Attorney General helped to get these shitheels out of prison. Thanks, Barry!

Make sure to read the whole thing, but try not to punch your monitor.
