The Political Animal is upset because he is finally starting to catch a whiff of politics in the whole 9/11 Commission. Better late than never, I say, but what is Kevin so upset about:
You can just feel the cleverness oozing from Ashcroft’s pores as he felt “compelled” to mention that Gorelick was the author of the memo, can’t you? It’s like watching a high school student council meeting.
But there’s a serious question here. The fact that Ashcroft was so pleased with himself makes it obvious that he declassified this memo for the sole purpose of embarrassing Gorelick, an action that continues a Bush administration pattern of casually declassifying anything that helps their political cause but refusing to declassify anything that might hurt them.
You mean it is sorta like certain Democrats on the 9/11 Commission demanding that an August 6th PDB that they had read be declassified so people like you could wildly exxagerate (like in this post you wrote two hours ago)the ‘information’ contained within the document and use it as a bludgeon to beat the President with as an election year stunt?
Is it something like that? I am shocked!
