Gonzalez

Attorney General and apologist for torture (as well as the suspension of habeus corpus) Alberto Gonzalez is causing frowns, even amongst solid Republicans. John Dean, Nixon's boy wonder lawyer, later a witness in the Watergate probe and now rehabilitated as a commentator, finds Gonzalez' exchanges with Republican Senator Arlen Specter to be a bit much. I watched some of the exchange, and Dean's account is about right.
