Does Eric Holder Know?

Nope. He does not:


Of course, neither did Alberto Gonzales, or if he did, he didn't recall:


Now, I don't know whether it's worse to not know anything or to not recall anything. I mean, if you don't know, you don't know, but if you don't recall, then you might know but not recall knowing or you might not know and not recall whether you know or not. Although I guess if you say you don't know, we don't know whether you never knew or whether you once knew but don't know now, which would be the same as not recalling. On the other hand, saying you don't know could potentially be disproven, like by a document showing you did know at the time you said you didn't. But if you say you don't recall, and then it turns out you knew, you could still just say you didn't recall. So I would say that saying you don't recall is worse because we can never really know whether you do or not.

I'm glad I could clear that up, although if they're both lying their asses off, which seems likely, it doesn't matter.
