Issa tells Holder 'you are not a good witness'

During a hearing today of the House Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed memory lapses when asked about the Fast and Furious scandal.
When U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, asked Holder if he or anyone else at the Justice Department had told the White House about "gunwalking" when it appeared that the activity contributed to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Holder replied, "I don't know."
Again, when Smith asked if Holder or anyone else at the Justice Department had informed the White House of the specific tactics used during the Operation Fast and Furious scheme, Holder replied, "I don't know."
The stonewalling angered U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who grilled Holder about his failure to turn over to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hundreds of documents that Issa says are pertinent to the investigation into Fast and Furious.
