Michelle Malkin on "The Night of the Short Knives." "Screw up, move up, cover up: It’s the Holder way, the Obama way, the Washington way."

In the New York Post:

Keep your friends close and your henchmen on the verge of spilling all the beans closer.

There’s been only one visible Fast and Furious resignation: US Attorney Dennis Burke in Phoenix, who quietly stepped down on Tuesday. One of his last acts? Opposing the request of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s family to qualify as crime victims in a court case against the thug who bought the Fast and Furious guns used in Terry’s murder.

The fish rots from the head down, of course. DOJ is run by Eric Holder, the Beltway swamp creature who won bipartisan approval for his nomination -- even after putting political interests ahead of security interests at the Clinton Justice Department in pushing presidential pardons for both big donor Marc Rich and several Puerto Rican FALN terrorists.

Screw up, move up, cover up: It’s the Holder way, the Obama way, the Washington way. And innocent Americans pay.

I just realized: the reason Holder flowered Burke with accolades was he willingly resigned (took his being thrown under the bus). Nothing said about Melson since he is being demoted unwillingly to the rubber room.

If you go along with the coverup plan, you get the promotion or rewards later. Burke will show up with a good job in a bit, good German that he is.

I think Melson is the man who could blow this thing wide open. Or maybe he is just holding out for a bigger and better deal.
