Eric Holder in Afghanistan…

Here is an article about a trip that Eric Holder is currently on from the Huffington Post. 

I thought that was interesting, you know, with everything that he (Eric Holder) need to do here in the US.  Such as, file against the Arizona Immigration Law, figure out how to thwart a Federal Judge and reinstate the drilling ban, file criminal charges against British Petroleum, figure out how to circumvent the 2nd Amendment ruling from the Supreme Court, etc.  What could he be doing in Afghanistan?

Here is another article concerning the same trip, from MSN.  Following are some quotes from the article.  Bold is my thoughts on the quotes.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was in the Afghan capital to talk with officials about improving the justice system and fighting corruption (such as selling a Senate Seat) Wednesday, a day after Afghanistan’s top prosecutor defended himself against allegations that he’s being pressured not to pursue cases against powerful figures (such as the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia).

The Obama administration and other donor nations, who need Karzai to be perceived as a credible partner (doesn’t Karzai need Obama to be perceived as a credible partner), are pushing him to clean up bribery, graft and corruption (such as selling a Senate Seat, or dismissing Tax Cheats, so they can work in your administration).

“Fighting corruption and supporting the rule of law (such as Bankruptcy Lawin Afghanistan are top priorities for this administration, and we will continue to assist the Afghan government in creating and sustaining the effective criminal justice system to which the Afghan people are entitled,” Holder said in a statement issued by the U.S. Justice Department in Washington.

Let me know what you think.
