The boyz in Cheney's office were the pricks and dicks. They pushed for the spying on American citizens according to a Newsweek article to publish this week. The whole sordid mess can be read here. The article is entitled: Palace Revolt. Very appropriate dont you think?
The legal minds fighting for truth and justice were appointees, not career feds according to the article. Two names are highlighted: former assistant Attorney General Jack Goldsmith, who left in 2004 and James Comey, deputy Attorny General, who resigned last summer. Both men have gone back into private life and refuse to discuss what took place behind closed doors. Both men shun the press. The information has been gathered from people still working in the Whitehouse apparently, but of course they speak from behind a cloak of secrecy, ever fearful of retribution by the Shrub..or worse..Cheney and his goon David Addington.
These men also fought against torturing prisoners. But to no avail..
Comey btw..is the one that appointed Patrick Fitzgerald...ain't that a hoot!
I highly suggest reading the entire article..it gives insight to the internal back-biting and fighting between the AG's office, the DOJ, the Office of Legal Counsel and Cheney's main henchman David Addington.
Addington comes off as the Prick he really is. The Shrub gives nicknames to these men that are sad and disgusting. READ IT! You wont be bored sportsfans..take it from me.
