LEFT HAND PRETENDS TO REBUKE RIGHT HAND
In a rebuke to his own Justice Department, Bush told the [9/11] commission he was disappointed about the release of documents about former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, a Democratic member of the commission. Republicans have contended that the documents, posted on the Justice Department Web site, showed that she was deeply involved in developing 1995 guidance that strengthened the legal "wall" making it difficult for FBI counterintelligence agents to share information with prosecutors and criminal investigators.
"The president does not believe we ought to be pointing fingers in this time period," [White House press secretary Scott] McClellan said.
Yeah, I'm sure the White House had absolutely no idea that was happening. And I'm sure heads will roll. And yes, I'd love to buy that bridge.
