Attorney General Gonzales now has one of his lies clearly documented:
At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Mr. Gonzales repeatedly testified that the subject of the emergency meeting on March 10, 2004, was not the terrorist surveillance program, which allowed the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on suspects in the United States without receiving court approval.I'm so surprised.
Instead, he said, the meeting focused on another intelligence program he would not describe.
But a four-page memorandum from the national intelligence director’s office, obtained by The Associated Press, shows that the White House briefing was about the surveillance program.
Of course, Mr Gonzales “stands by his testimony,” nonetheless. That's it, Gonzo: brazen it out.Congress is threatening perjury prosecution. They need to stop threatening and act on it, and act to enforce the contempt-of-Congress charges on Ms Meiers and Mr Bolton. And they ought to deal with the Prez's contempt of the Constitution too, while they're about it.
