Alberto el tonto

At a news conference Tuesday, Gonzales said he would find out what went wrong but said he would not resign. "I acknowledge that mistakes were made here. I accept that responsibility," Gonzales said amid growing calls for his own termination.

Gonzales spins a lovely fable at a news conference about the questionable firing of 8 well-thought of, qualified federal prosecutors, including Carol Lam of San Diego.

Again, there is the mea culpa thing said in a loud, but actually uncontrite voice- a sham auto-criticism that says
it happened on our watch
mistakes were made
we'll get to the bottom of this
something went terribly wrong.

Yeah, no shit, Sherlock.
Notice the use of the indefinite third person, the passive (aggressive) verb formation.
It is never "I" did this so there. It's more "I take full responsibility" and symbolically offer to throw myself on my sword only to save myself at the last moment by offering up an underling (the lying wretch!) to take the fall.
For a biblically inspired presidency, this is oh so sacrifice of Abraham.

Screw it.

Recall Gonzales, fire him on charges and then hold him over for trial.
Que conyo.
read the sorry rest here.

Hi Zazou,
Just wanted to let you know about this:

Giuliana Sgrena's Book Tour Comes to LA:

FRIENDLY FIRE An Independent Journalist's Story of
Being Abducted in Iraq, Rescued, and Shot by U.S. Forces

Italian journalist and author Giuliana Sgrena to speak
with Helga Aguayo, wife of war resister Agustín Aguayo
and author/editor Anthony Arnove

WHEN: Monday, March 19th at 7 pm

WHERE: Immanuel Presbyterian Church
3300 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles

WHO: GIULINA SGRENA, will be speaking and signing her new book

"The story of [Sgrena's] abduction and liberation depicts but one in a
series of risks she has taken to bring to her readers the stories that go
untold, of people threatened by war and conflict. Against enormous odds,
Giuliana Sgrena is a survivor - she understands in the most personal way the
fear, suffering, and courage of the victims and survivors who she covers.
Sgrena has risked her life to bring us these stories. Listen to her
message." -- Amy Goodman, Host of Democracy Now!
Thanks Robin!

Good to know. I know Giuliana's story and I firmly believe the US ws trying to warn her.
