More Lies From the DEA (Just who is in charge?)

In another disappointing development (Is there any other kind?) a pot club I’d never heard of was knocked over by a defiant DEA raid in the heart of San Francisco yesterday. Typically, although I’d heard a vague rumor of a bust as I was leaving the clinic yesterday, I’d become busy with other things and didn’t recall it until I saw the story in today's SF Chronicle (be sure to watch the video).

The lame cover story; that there were suspected violations of state law, is a blatantly dishonest spin on past statements by both Obama and Holder; it also raise serious questions about the integrity of America’s new President and just who is in charge of his embattled government.

Numerous suggestions have appeared on the web to call or send letters of protest to the DEA. I think it should be explained that the DEA does not answer to the American people directly, it is a law enforcement agency administered by the Department of Justice. The DOJ is part of President Obama's cabinet and answers directly to him.

So Mr. Holder says the DEA raids would no longer continue and six weeks later we have this??? As Head of the Executive Branch, where is Pres. Obama?? He is supposed to be in charge, after all. And under him is Mr. Holder, the Attorney General!

Makes one wonder who then is in charge? Where is the boss??? It’s up to the bosses Holder and Obama to see that their own directives are carried out.
