How can Gonzales say this with a straight face. He gets "more precise" he says.
At this point the Administration is trying to stave off further investigation. They need to build a dyke to hold off this inquiry. If they cannot, then other inquiry's will continue, and the Administration officials will have to testify under oath. Given what has been happening for the past six years, with politics driving almost all policy decisions, the Administration cannot allow that to happen.
I believe the Bush Administration would not have dug itself such a deep hole, if the last Congress had held them more accountable. Congress asked for no accountability, and the Administration was "taken at it's word" on many serious issues. The Administration likely broke a lot of rules. Now they will have to answer for these transgressions.
