“President Bush is so unaccustomed to congressional oversight that he confuses accountability with partisanship.

President Bush is one of the few people left in Washington who has confidence in Attorney General Gonzales. It’s time for him to go. And that’s just the first step in cleaning up this administration.”

Senate Betrays American Values, Undermines Rule of Law

Fundamental Protections Central to Our System of Justice Thrown By the Wayside as Senate Passes Election-Year Tribunals Bill

This legislation turns our system of justice upside down, betrays basic American values of fairness and justice, and undermines the rule of law. It gives the Bush administration a blank check to detain whoever it sees fit, and to use whatever interrogation techniques it wants, without oversight. What a disgrace.
