It really looks like Gonzales’ world is collapsing around him, like that of so many, “Heck-Of-A-Job,” members of the “W.” Fan Club before him. The man has no credibility left, and could not possibly inspire any sense of confidence in the office of the Attorney General. From today’s Washington Post:
FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III yesterday contradicted the sworn testimony of his boss, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, by telling Congress that a prominent warrantless surveillance program was the subject of a dramatic legal debate within the Bush administration.
Mueller’s testimony appears to mark the first public confirmation from a Bush administration official that the National Security Agency’s Terrorist Surveillance Program was at issue in an unusual nighttime visit by Gonzales to the hospital bedside of then-Attorney General John D. Ashcroft, who was under sedation and recovering from surgery.
Imagine trying to use a doped-up John Ashcroft to get approval for a program. Does anyone at all in the White House have any sense of ethics?
Where are all of the Republican’s who care so much about right and wrong? Why be so silent?
I know, everyone and their grandmother wants to win the White House again, because, really, that’s all that matters. So, line up behind St. Alberto and be silent. We know your game.
All the while, we’re one step closer to Bush and Cheney. The movement to impeach them is growing.
