The Albany Times Union has an editorial outlining why John Aschroft should resign as Attorney General.
His departure can't come fast enough. His legacy, after all, will be the Patriot Act. Three years later, it's clearer than ever that this ill-conceived and hastily approved package of anti-terrorism laws made the country no safer. In exchange for an erosion of their civil liberties, Americans got, well, nothing to speak of.
Of course, we agree. But so what? Ashcroft is not the only danger. Bush and his power of appointment are what is to be feared.
