Missouri Lt. Gov. suspects that Obama/Holder told Gov. Nixon to keep National Guard out of Ferguson

Missouri’s Lt. Governor wants to know if Obama and Holder told Governor Nixon to keep the National Guard out of Ferguson last night because it’s clear they weren’t there and were desperately needed. He believes that if the National Guard had been deployed as soon as the police car was attacked, much of last night’s looting and burnings wouldn’t have happened.



He also points out that he’d have had the announcement made at 6AM, not 8PM. And he said they were questioning that yesterday, not just in the aftermath of what went down last night.
