What do Saddam Hussein’s Ba’ath party officals who sat in on UN Weapons Inspection interviews with Iraqi scientitsts to intimidate the scientists have in common with Justice Department officials who sit in on interviews conducted with the 9/11 commission?
Everything, because clearly they are the exact same thing! No one doubts that should the interviewee say the wrong thing, the Justice department will quickly issue agents to go to the interviewee’s house, grab his family, send them through a wood chipper, and then put their remains in plastic bags on the porch of the interviewee’s house. George Bush and John Ashcroft are just like Saddam!
Look- I am not happy with the slow pace of the investigation, but ANY comparison between the Justice Department sitting in on interviews and the behavior of Saddam’s Baa’ath regime is simply over the top and disgusting (although Kevin’s commenters seem to not know the difference).
