Former Rep. Allen West calls Atty General Holder a bigger threat than al-Qaeda

Katie LaPotin, Red Alert Politics, June 5, 2013

Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) believes that Attorney General Eric Holder is a more dangerous threat to the United States than the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.

West, who lost his bid for re-election in November and is now a Fox News contributor and the Director of Programming for Next Generation TV, made the claim in a fundraising email for his political action committee, theAllen West Guardian Fund.

After posting a side-by-side picture of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, and Holder, West asked the email’s recipients “Which of these emails scares you the most?” The answer, as he then pointed out, was Holder.

“…I’ll tell you flat out — Eric Holder is a bigger threat to our Republic for the very reasons Cicero contemplated over 2,000 years ago,” West wrote in the email. “Al-Qaeda is a very serious and persistent threat, but I trust the U.S. military to protect us from future attacks. I cannot say the same about President Obama and his Justice Department.”

While West’s remarks are among the most extreme made about Holder in recent weeks, he is not alone in wanting Holder replaced in light of the Internal Revenue Service and Associated Press scandals. A recent Rasmussen study found that 47 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the attorney general, and that 42 percent believe he should resign from office.
