Obama administration enjoys double standard

What does the Obama administration have to hide? After proclaiming his administration would be the most transparent in history; he has done just the opposite.

The Obama administration and Eric Holder have sealed all the records on Fast and Furious, the gun-running scheme set up during this administration. They have managed to thwart the efforts of the media and Congress in this blatant misuse of executive privilege. What does this administration have to hide? Violation of our own laws and treaties with Mexico come to mind.

The Obama administration has allowed Eric Holder to dismiss charges against the Black Panthers after widely publicized and often viewed video footage of the offense in action, taken at a polling entrance. Holder’s comments were that he saw nothing wrong. If this were done by white men, the full force of the FBI and CIA would have been launched against the group involved.

Why the double standard?
