This will undoubtedly be a multi-part post since thinking of the questions the media should ask Obama and his representatives takes a bit of thought. That being said, if I, an average non journalist, a completely untrained individual can come up with the questions that should be asked of the administration, its department heads and their associated spokespeople, then how much more effective should questions asked by the media be. Unfortunately, over the past 5 years most of their questions are impotent and ineffective. Therefore, I am producing a list of questions the media can ask.
I hope that everyone reading this will send this list to as many reporters, newrooms, newspapers and television stations as they can until our media outlets start asking the questions that matter. We will start with fast and furious but each day we will add to the list.
President Obama, Eric Holder was held in contempt for not providing documents related to our giving guns to the Mexican drug cartels. American agents have died as a result of that policy, Why does he continue to serve and not produce the documents?
Since Mr. Holder and your administration have failed to assist Congress in getting to the details of what happened can you explain why you supported giving guns to Mexican drug lords?
Since Mr. Holder was held in contempt why is he not in jail rather than serving as attorney general?
How can an attorney general have such contempt for the law and continue to stonewall Congress?
Mr. President do you support having the attorney general break the law and not comply with Congressional requests?
If you don’t support giving guns to Mexican drug lords what specific steps have you taken to recover the guns our government gave to the drug lords?
By what specific date will Congress have the documents requested?
What specific people have been terminated from government service as a result of their giving guns to criminals?
What criminal charges have been filed as a result of giving these guns to Mexican drug cartels?
Why is no one serving time for the distribution of guns to drug lords?
Did the drug lords pass a background check as is required by the law?
How did the justice department get around that requirement in order to deliver these guns?
Did the administration plan to use this program to make gun ownership in the United States more difficult?
If the administration did not plan to use this program to make gun ownership in the United States more difficult what was its intended objective? How was that objective to be achieved? If the guns were to be tracked what steps were taken to allow for them to be tracked before they were sold? What documents support those contentions?
