Reasons to Oppose Alberto Gonzales

Human Rights First:

Human Rights First is formally opposing Alberto Gonzales’ confirmation and they have created a web movie that explains how Gonzales’ legal advice opened the door for the prison abuse scandals that shocked the United States and the rest of the world. Click here to view the web movie now. Once you’ve seen the movie, you can take action by urging your Senators to vote against Albert Gonzales’ nomination for U.S. Attorney General.

Also, reacquaint yourself with this article in Salon by Alan Berlow with new information on Gonzales and Bush.

The attorney general nominee claims he and then Texas Gov. Bush held "rolling" discussions before executions were approved. He's almost certainly not telling the truth.

    Lying under oath for a Democrat: The most heinous crime of all time. Lying under oath for a Republican: Shows you're a true patriot.

    What a putz!!! The linked articles make me wish Texas had seceded - then we could spread Democracy to them! They do explain Gonzalez's position on torture, though. He's not treating them any different than he treats the rights of American prisoners.
