Here is the article regarding our Attorney General making good on his promise to get Patrick Leahy, D-VT, records on domestic spying.
Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales:
''It's important for us that they understand what we're doing,'' Gonzales said. ''All they have to do is ask.''
''We want to be as accommodating as we can, given the unique circumstances,'' he said. ''Obviously, this is an issue that draws extraordinary interest, and we understand that. But we also have a responsibility to ensure the confidentiality of this information.''
I cannot imagine that Gonzales said this with a straight face. I cannot imagine that anyone, who heard him say it, could have kept one either.
