On Sunday Attorney General Alberto Gonzales brought up the idea of federal prosecutions of journalists who report based on leaked information.
"There are some statutes on the book which, if you read the language carefully, would seem to indicate that that is a possibility," .......... "We have an obligation to enforce those laws. We have an obligation to ensure that our national security is protected."
Lets examine this statement a little.
"If you read the language carefully" - What statute is not written or meant to be read carefully? What I think Alberto means is that if you look really really closely - say through a microscope there are tiny extra words between the words - written so small that they are almost undetectable that say: "President George W. Bush get to do whatever the F--K he wants regardless of the law"
"Would seem to indicate that that is a possibility". Now that is a strong statement isn't it? It would stand up in court of law. Nicely put Alberto!
"We have an obligation to enforce those laws." An obligation to enforce carefully - seemingly - indicated - possible laws. Right!
Mr. Gonzales I have a new law for you. How about adding language to any immigration bill that allow us to deport a grandchild of illegal immigrants if they butcher the Constitution?
