Wolf to Holder – strike three

Rep. Frank Wolf just wants some simple answers to some simple questions from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Beginning in March, Wolf sent a detailed letter to Holder inquiring about the nature of the detainee transfer from Guantanamo to Virginia.

Wolf now has more questions for the justice head:

“I have grave concerns that you are playing fast and loose with the definition of “terrorist” and may be misleading the American people regarding its plans to release the Uyghur detainees into the U.S. Let me be very clear – the Uyghurs held at Guantanamo Bay are trained terrorists and members or associates of the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), a designated terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda, as designated by both the U.S. government and the United Nations (U.N.). Whether their intended victims were Chinese or Americans, a trained terrorist is a terrorist.”

Wolf also raises questions in his recent correspondence as to why the AG has been prohibiting staff from the FBI, Marshals Service and Department of Homeland Security from coming to brief him.

To track the timeline of how the AG’s office is slow-rolling Congress, read Letter 1, Letter 2, and Letter 3.

I thought this was supposed to be the most transparent administration in history?
