  1. I don't know what to say about this, except that under any other administration, this would be considered a very serious breach of national protocol.

    WASHINGTON - A Justice Department report scolds former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for mishandling highly classified documents about an eavesdropping program and interrogating terror detainees - two of the Bush administration's most sensitive counter-terror efforts.
    The report says Gonzales failed to store the documents in proper secure facilities and at one point took them home. The report released Tuesday also says he stored them in his briefcase because he did not know the combination to the safe at his house.
    Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine referred the security breach to the department's National Security Division. But the reports says prosecutors there declined to bring charges against Gonzales.


    His defense,of course, as with every misdeed of the present administration, will be excused as mere incompetence.

    Another completely botched act of the most incompetant administration in history, imo.

    Is mishandling our National Security OK for Bush insiders, or should this guy be getting deposed in Guantanamo, as a potential security leak?
