Attorney General blocking Investigations

Michael Mukasey is just another Alberto Gonzalez, Mukasey behaves like he's the ANTI-Justice Attorney General. Another typical "protect me and my cronies" Bush selection that the Democratic majority Senate went along with. Shame on the Dems for this. No Attorney General would be an improvement over this.

Here’s the report from Democracy Now:

Mukasey Blocks Congressional Probe of Destroyed CIA Tapes

Attorney General Michael Mukasey is coming under intense criticism by Democrats for his handling of the scandal surrounding the CIA’s destruction of hundreds of hours of videotape showing interrogations inside secret CIA prisons. Within a single 24-hour period, the Justice Department warned a federal judge to back-off of his inquiry into the destruction of the tapes, told Congress to delay its own investigation into the matter, and refused to cooperate with congressional inquiries into the Justice Department’s role in the elimination of the tapes. The American Civil Liberties Union called the Justice Department’s actions a stunning rebuke of the constitutional system of checks and balances. (Headlines 12/17/07)

This is why I am no longer a Democrat. A 5 year old could have seen this coming, yet still they voted for this monkey on a leash.

I so agree with you mac....I have so much disdain for the "I'll lay down and let you stomp on me" Democratic leadership.

They continue to work on "reconciliation" with folks who refuse to compromise....

Insanity is doing something over and over again and getting the same failed response....I'd say the current Dem leadership is insane...THEY NEED TO CHANGE COURSE and be willing to fight for what they believe in.

Progressives may call the right wing crazy...but at least they aren't going to give up their current winning formula. They will fight mean, hard, filibuster everything they don't like....and then they win. What fool would stop acting this way when the opposition party allows you to win with this formula?
