He’s…….. gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone….
It’s a happy day in America when one of the more scarier members of the current administration steps down from his post after realizing that:
“The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved.”
Ha! Securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror by performing acts of crime and terror against them and chipping away at their real freedom piece by piece. Yeah, that worked buddy. Of course, he’s now looking toward our future and believes that:
“the Department of Justice would be well served by new leadership and fresh inspiration”
Hmmmm… who might that new leadership and fresh inspiration be?
Could it be the honorable Judge Alberto Gonzales?
The same Alberto Gonzales that was Bush’s go to guy in finding out just how much they could torture somebody before it became illegal? [memo html]
The same Alberto Gonzales that counseled Bush into ignoring Powell’s more level-headed opinion on how to classify Al-Qaeda detainees? [memo pdf]
The same Alberto Gonzales that penned the memo signed by Bush declaring to the world that we would not treat Al-Qaeda detainees as defined by the Geneva Convention while still requiring that everybody else follows the rules? [memo pdf]
Yup, that’d be him. Can’t you just feel the freedom surrounding you as we speak?
