    Last week, Attorney General Ashcroft, along with spreading false information about Clinton's orders to kill bin Ladin, attacked 9/11 commissioner Jamie Gorelick as the author of a policy that was the single greatest structural problem that led to 9/11. Here is a portion of her response in the Washington Post . Be sure to read the whole article.

    on air america today, al franken was interviewing sen. mccain. according to mccain, the entire 9/11 commission (i.e. all its members) thought ashcroft was out of line when he attacked gorelick. mccain sounded particularly angry about it.

    Worst of all, Ashcroft was accusing Gorelick of inventing a policy that was actually hatched during the Reagan administration, and he was doing it for purely political purposes. Attorney General Ashcroft, do you at long last have no shame?

    Very nice and appropriate allusion to the McCarthy Era, IJ!
