The US Attorneys Who Weren't Fired
If those eight U.S. attorneys were fired at the behest of Karl Rove for real or imagined disloyalty to the president (and that does seem to be the case), then what were the 85 other prosecutors doing right?
indeed, the party that flatters itself that they protect America better is the
party that has exhausted the military, left the ports wide open and purposefully
outed a CIA agent, Valerie Plame.
That's not treason anymore? Outing a spy? Did I mention it was one of our spies? And how despicable that Bush's lackeys attempted to diminish this crime by belittling her service, like she was just some chick who hung around the CIA. - Bill Maher

Bush Meets War Criminal in Oval Office
Red-faced Bush administration officials were trying to explain yesterday how it was that no one noticed that that fine Russian general -- and alleged war criminal -- who met with President Bush and retired Air Force Gen. Robert Foglesong on Monday in the Oval Office has been accused of overseeing some of the most notorious atrocities against civilians in Chechnya.
