Subverting The Rule Of Law

by S-Q @ 4:30 PM MDT

The GOP were seeking to destroy one of their own who refused to prosecute Dems when evidence was lacking. First they forced him to resign, then they bad-mouthed him in public saying his performance was subpar even though it wasn’t, and finally they tried to derail his attempt to obtain a Judgeship. The politicization of the Judiciary Branch is the underlying story here, subverting the Rule of Law to obtain political advantages.

An Isolated President

Two weeks earlier on Capitol Hill, there was a groundswell of Republican demands — public and private — that President Bush pardon Scooter Libby. Last week, as Alberto Gonzales came under withering Democratic fire, there were no public GOP declarations of support amid private predictions of the attorney general’s demise.

Republican leaders in Congress, who asked not to be quoted by name, predicted early last week that Gonzales would fall because the Justice Department botched the firing of eight U.S. attorneys. By week’s end, they stipulated that the president would not sack his longtime aide and that Gonzales would leave only on his own initiative. But there was still an ominous lack of congressional support for the attorney general.

Waxman advises RNC not to destroy any e-mails

Published: Monday March 26, 2007

Pointing to e-mails between Bush administration officials and convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff that used private e-mail addresses, the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee ordered the Republican National Committee and the Bush/Cheney 2004 campaign to preserve all e-mail records and to ensure that they aren’t purged or destroyed.

“White House officials have used nongovernmental e-mail accounts, including those maintained by the RNC, to conduct official white House business,” Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) wrote in letters delivered today, copies of which were sent to RAW STORY. “The Committee has questions about who has access to these e-mail records and how the RNC protects them from destruction and tampering.”

AG Alberto Gonzales

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, both already under siege for other matters, are now being accused of failing to prosecute officers of the Texas Youth Commission after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution’s minor boy inmates.

Among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties.

Remember The Gulf of Tonkin?

by Basheert @9:20am MDT

The Gulf of Tonkin resolution was used as justification for the Vietnam War. Are we seeing a direct parallel here, to justify attacking Iran? I have read in the past that the target date for bombing Iranian targets is April 2008 – perhaps we all need to put on our thinking caps and see what diversionary tactic the Bushies have up their sleeves now.

Seriously Injured Troops Were Deployed

by S-Q @ 6:40 AM MDT

By Mark Benjamin

Soldiers on crutches and canes were sent to a main desert camp used for Iraq training. Military experts say the Army was pumping up manpower statistics to show a brigade was battle ready.

Hernandez had served two tours in Iraq, where he helped maintain communications gear in the unit’s armored Bradley Fighting Vehicles. But he could not participate in war maneuvers conducted on a 1,000-square-mile mock battlefield located in the harsh Mojave Desert. Instead, when he got to California, he was led to a large tent where he would be housed. He was shocked by what he saw inside: There were dozens of other hurt soldiers. Some were on crutches, and others had arms in slings. Some had debilitating back injuries. And nearby was another tent, housing female soldiers with health issues ranging from injuries to pregnancy.
