FOX NEWS IN CHARGE OF THE HENHOUSE
By Eric Malone
This is Your Country.
This is Your Country’s Shadow Government on Drugs.
Last week we found out that there are Five Million E-mails missing from the White House (from March 2003 to October 2005), some of them involving the case of the Eight Fired U.S. Attorneys about which Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will testify on Tuesday. Then Department of Justice (DOJ) Spokesliar Dana Perino came out to explain that this is the “first administration to operate in the era of instant communications.”
Gee, really? I could have sworn that Oliver North and Richard Secord got caught with their hands in the Iran-Contra cookie jar when they thought they had deleted incriminating emails from the IBM PROFS system, only to have them turn up on the servers in the basement of the White House back in 1987.
And this is not the first time that Señor Torture has had “email troubles.” When Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald went looking for Karl Rove emails on the Valerie Plame CIA leak, he issued a subpoena to then-White House counsel Gonzales on January 22, 2004. Thoughtful Alberto gave everyone at the White House 12-hours notice to clean out their hard drives and purge their servers before delivering the subpoena.
And this is the guy who is in charge of making sure Justice is served?
