From frying pan to fire: the nomination of Alberto Gonzales
If you thought John Ashcroft was a nightmare, wait until Alberto Gonzales gets a crack at the AG spot. He was one of the architects of the legal decision to deny detainees in the War on Terror their Geneva Convention rights, a horrendous decision which lead to abuses at Abu Ghraib.
Particularly striking in his memo to President Bush, where he defends his decision, is when he lists the arguments against him, which are eerily prescient. Still, he dismisses them summarily, calling the Geneva Conventions "quaint".
Way to unite and not divide, GWBII!
