    If you liked John Ashcroft ...

    ... then you'll love Alberto Gonzales.

    He wrote a memo advising GWB to declare that the Afghanistan conflict be exempt from the provisions of the Geneva Convention in order to avoid potential prosecutions for war crimes, and descrbing the prohibition on "coercive interrogation" as "obsolete" and "quaint" ... http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4999734/site/newsweek/

    Don't go expecting this fella to be any great upholder of human rights. But then you probably weren't anyway, right?

    I think the good people of Missouri had it right when they cast more votes for a dead man than for John Ashcroft.

    Apparantly so.

    Take it from me, you will never get Mr Hanky to admit that there is anything wrong in torturing Iraqi's, because he can always say ...
    • They were probably guilty of something.
    • There were those other guys who were executing civilians, so that makes it OK for Americans to do the same.
    • Bleeding heart ... blah blah ... tree hugging ... blah blah ... new type of conflict ... blah blah


    Heh heh heh. The concept that it might be the best recruitment tool ever handed to Al Qaeda doesn't occur to the Abu Ghraib crowd.
