President-elect Barack Obama's pick of gun control advocate Eric Holder to lead the U.S. Justice department has run into more problems. As if there wasn't enough opposition from mainstream Americans who disagree with his flippant disregard for the Second Amendment, there is the issue of coddling domestic terrorists.
Holder, who worked in the Clinton administration, oversaw the clemency granted to 16 violent domestic terrorists by Bill Clinton in the waning days of his presidency.
Some republicans in the Senate plan to invite to Holder's hearing relatives of a man killed by nationalists who used bombing as a tool to gain statehood for Puerto Rico. Also invited to will be a leading advocate for the Second Amendment, attorney Stephen Halbrook.
It should make for interesting theatre . . .
