No, that's not what I meant

I guess that's what Attorney General Holder was trying to say to Congress.  Even though the plain language belies his contention.  From CNS:

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Eric Holder claimed during congressional testimony today that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase “Fast and Furious” do not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.

Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver.”

However, the emails refer to both programs -- "Fast and Furious" and the "Tucson case," from where Wide Receiver was launched -- and reveal Justice Department officials discussing how to handle media scrutiny when both operations become public.
Why yes....we used the term Fast & Furious, but it really didn't mean THAT Fast & Furious.

Does he really think we are that gullible?   Don't answer that....the country did elect Obama in 2008.
