CNN: LA to get special federal agents from now til election time (tags)

Just want to let you folks know, the DOJ has announced LA is one of 15 cities that will get special eams of federal agents and independent prosecutors that will be in the city from now until just after the elections. These are supposedly for the summer crime rise that usually happens, but if that were true they would have been here months ago, and would leave far before the elections.

Torture(d) Logic (tags)

Q: What’s worse (much worse, actually) than a U.S. Attorney General tussling with U.S. Senators over a definition of torture? A: Finding out the U.S. government has actively sought a way to commit it. Can anything be done to counter this insanity? There’d better be, for our country’s soul depends on it.

An un-American activity (tags)

Now we know better. A classified FBI intelligence memorandum has recently come to light demonstrating that the FBI is using this new authority to spy on nonviolent antiwar demonstrators.

The nation's attorney general is on the ropes and swinging wildly. (tags)

Once again, Mr. Ashcroft has utterly missed the point. As many commentators have patiently tried to explain to him--we must, after all, talk to him as one talks to a punch-drunk fighter--the point is not whether federal authorities have yet started checking what we read; the point is that the U.S. Patriot Act gives those authorities the right to monitor what we read. Giving anyone that right is exactly what’s wrong, Mr. Ashcroft. If we are hysterics, then you, sir, are a dangerous dimwit.

None of the report's findings apparently pricked his conscience: not the way men were indiscriminately arrested, or the way they were kept from contacting attorneys, or the way they were left to languish for months while the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents assigned to clear them of terrorist links were given other duties.

HIGHTOWER: Shredding Ashcroft (tags)

Who is it that rushes to the barricades of our nation's democracy, daring to confont John "Mad Dog" Ashcroft as he rips into our Bill of Rights and tries to strip We the People of our hard-won personal liberties? Not the Congress – it's meekly going along, providing the authority and funding for Ashcroft's maniacal assault. Not the puffheads of the media – they're too busy shouting "patriotism" and cheering the Bushites to see, hear, or speak any evil by the emperor.

COUPWATCH: Ashcroft's First Order of Business--Investigate Self For Perjury (tags)

If John Ashcroft had a single shred of integrity in his bones his first order of business would be to investigate himself for perjury in his testimony before the Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing. But don't worry, he doesn't have a shred of integrity! Dozens of Republican Senators are on record denouncing perjury by the highest law enforcement officer in the land. But don't worry, that only applies to Democrats! Will the Democrats complain? Does a jellyfish have a spine?

COUP WATCH: Theocracy -- From Red Rock Eater News Service (tags)

John Ashcroft's critics are divided over whether his address to Bob Jones University in May 1999 might jeopardize his confirmation as attorney general. Historians, however, will find much to criticize in the transcript of Mr. Ashcroft's brief remarks…. The Bob Jones transcript shows that Mr. Ashcroft holds erroneous and equally dubious views about the American Revolution, with troubling implications about his understanding of the separation of church and state.

COUPWATCH: FAIR Media Advisory: Ashcroft Quizzed About Southern Partisan (tags)

John Ashcroft, George W. Bush's nominee for attorney general, was questioned during his Senate confirmation hearing about his on-the-record endorsement of the white supremacist publication Southern Partisan.... That a nominee for U.S. attorney general would endorse a magazine that he knew celebrated the Confederacy is troubling in itself. That he would make no effort to check whether he had in fact promoted a racist magazine, even after his endorsement became a national issue--or would lie under oath about not having done so--is deeply disturbing.
