Mistakes are made in war, it's unavoidable. Do we really need a Congressional investigation to show that Tillman was killed by friendly fire? Tillman's commanders didn't do anything that Democrats don't do daily on the floor of Congress and in front of media cameras.
"Attorney General Alberto Gonzales approved plans to fire several U.S. attorneys in a November meeting, according to documents released Friday that contradict earlier claims that he was not closely involved in the dismissals."
"The Nov. 27 meeting, in which the attorney general and at least five top Justice Department officials participated, focused on a five-step plan for carrying out the firings of the prosecutors, Justice Department officials said late Friday.
There, Gonzales signed off on the plan, which was crafted by his chief of staff, Kyle Sampson. Sampson resigned last week amid a political firestorm surrounding the firings."
The documents indicated that the hour-long morning discussion, held in the attorney general's conference room, was the only time Gonzales met with top aides who decided which prosecutors to fire and how to do it.
Justice spokeswoman Tasia Scolinos said it was not immediately clear whether Gonzales gave his final approval to begin the firings at that meeting. Scolinos also said Gonzales was not involved in the process of selecting which prosecutors would be asked to resign."
The article continues with a lot of background information but the content of the article never produces any evidence that Gonzales played any roll in the discussions. Democrats and the AP say "But he gave final approval for the firings!" Well, of course he did, he's the boss! As Attorney General, he would have to approve the firings after his one hour briefing.
Gonzales stated to Congress that he was not closely involved in the firing process. The article content actually shows that it was Kyle Sampson who was closely involved and conducted communications with the Whitehouse that didn't involve Gonzales at all. So where is the "contradiction" that the AP article suggests? It doesn't exist.
The Democrats and their big media mouthpieces are again trying to do the same thing with Gonzales that they tried to do with Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Another witch hunt demanding access to every email and other communication between the Justice Dept. and the Whitehouse in hopes that their fishing expedition will turn up something they can portray as "a crime".
We've seen what the Democrats have done to Lewis "Scooter" Libby for failing to accurately remember the sequence of events and exactly what he said to whom, that took place over two years prior. Perhaps the same should be done to Congressional Democrats and their connections and communications with radical left wing special interest groups. No doubt the conclusions would result in a Republican majority being restored to Congress with two thirds of the Democrats in jail.
