OBAMA: How can he have confidence in Eric Holder?

President Obama said (TNT, 10-6) he has full confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder and how he runs his office. Then he said neither he nor Holder had full knowledge of the Fast and Furious Operation.

This is a curious comment, since Holder has responsibility for having full knowledge of this type of Justice Department operation. How can Obama have full confidence in him if he doesn’t know what he is supposed to know?
