Wasted Opportunity

Damn, why doesn't anything go right in this country:
AG, senior officials were prepared to quit over evidence seized from Congressional office

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and other senior officials were prepared to quit over a dispute with the White House about evidence seized from a Democratic Congressman's office, according to a front page story in Saturday's New York Times.

Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and senior officials and career prosecutors at the Justice Department told associates this week that they were prepared to quit if the White House directed them to relinquish evidence seized in a bitterly disputed search of a House member's office, government officials said Friday.

Mr. Gonzales was joined in raising the possibility of resignation by the deputy attorney general, Paul J. McNulty, the officials said. Mr. Gonzales and Mr. McNulty told associates that they had an obligation to protect evidence in a criminal case and would be unwilling to carry out any White House order to return the material to Congress. (emphasis added)
Let's see, the AG thinks its wrong to return the material to Congress, but he doesn't think its wrong to:

Steal an election

Invade a Country based on known falsehood

Occupy said country

Torture prisoners

Spirit prisoners off to countries known to torture

Spy on Americans without a warrant

Bomb women and children

Etc, Etc, Etc.....
Jeez, Louise! Lewis Carrol could never have thought of this.

I don't think any serious observer trusts Abu's show of righteousness. The question, though, is "What's really going on here? What do they want the proles to think?"

Oh, and thank God somebody at last has put the map up the right way. This is the correct world view. Goodonya, Doc.
