Protecting this guy (and his bosses) is actually what the executive privilege business is all about.

W.H.: Ex-staffer can't be questioned on Fast and Furious.
The White House said a former National Security staffer who communicated with ATF's Special Agent in charge of "Fast and Furious" cannot be interviewed by Congressional investigators.
The ATF Special Agent, Bill Newell, testified to Congress in July 2011 that he's a longtime friend with then-White House National Security Staffer Kevin O'Reilly. The two emailed and talked on the phone during the controversial Fast and Furious gunwalking operation, according to documents and Newell's testimony to Congress.

No big deal if O'Reilly is still sequestered in Iraq. There are very capable interrogators there who could be put to the task of taking his deposition. Hopefully, the deposition would not be cordial or friendly.

State side he could go before the investigators or the full committee and let it all hang out. No big deal right? Every thing was above board and legal right? They had clearance for the operation from the DOJ lawyers, right?

It was nothing. A few overzealous ATF agents. Right?


Come on out O'Reilly, you sniveling bureaucratic statist. Let us all know it's nothing to worry about.

Does it really matter where he is if a supoena is issued? Just don't get why he isn't answerable to Congress like anyone else.
