A very leaky bucket
When the Bush Justice Department tells a judge to back off from his inquiry into whether the CIA destroyed evidentiary videos, it's not an argument that holds much water.
The Justice Department, members of which may have been involved in the order to destroy the tapes, haven't had a great track record over the past eight years. Do the names Ashcroft and Gonzales ring a bell? How about Plamegate? And then there's the firing of US Attorneys General for poitical reasons.
Of course, there is the base untrustworthiness of Bush and his immediate minions.
It is, of course, a case of the fox not only guarding the henhouse, but running the KFC franchise.
So Judge Kennedy, it will be interesting to see if you have the good "judgment" of your appointed title.
