The Refuge Of Scoundrels

The Bush ADDministration has failed to comply with two subpeonas issued by Congress in two separate matters. The first, dealing with the US attorneys firings of which Attorney General Gonzales was scheduled to be "grilled" on today, until the shooting at Virginia Tech conveniently occurred.

Now Gonzales' testimony will occur Wednesday, while under the non-stop coverage of the tragedy (I'm not saying this was a black op) is played out for the next couple of months as the corporate media exploits and examines every angle of it until the next runaway bride or mass murder occurs. And anything incriminating Gonzales may say will be second to the big story.
Back to the subpeonas, the Justice Department failed to comply with a subpeona issued by John Conyers for documents relating to the case, with requested documents not supplied, or in redacted form. Which is the complete opposite of what the oversight committee asked for from them. Although I can't say for sure, the reasons that Justice will give will likely be the old dodge of the Bush regime, "national security".
In other subpeona news, Condaleeza Rice may face a subpeona if she fails to comply with an oversight committee's request for information on intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq, and other issues. Although, once again, the information will not be released, not because it's detrimental to the Bush regime (which it most certainly would be), but for the refuge of scoundrels, "national security" issues.
How convenient it has been for this administration to have an excuse to destroy the Constitution, as well as start many wars planned before they stole their power, and commit any number of crimes, then have the whole "national security" smokescreen to hide behind. Almost makes you think they may have had something to do with the whole thing. Either that, or fortune has smiled upon them more times than they deserve.

I was thinking the same thing today...maybe they paid someone to do it. Of all the ill-timed (hesitate to say luck but you know what I mean) awful things to happen. They are always getting some sort of an out it seems. It's rather uncanny to me.

It is bizarre but he does have to testify on Thursday. Two more days to stew in his own juices. Anyone think he'll be AG next Monday? I doubt it.

I'd say the fortune smiling down on them comes from the media (aka Republican mouthpieces.)

We are going to learn quite a bit about the functionality of our Democracy/Republic in the next week or two.

I love a good conspiracy theory, but damn, man! That's over the top. On second thought...
