Gonzales Confirmed as Attorney General

Well! Finally! Read it here.

I do suggest you read it: First there was the blockage by Democrats claiming AG Gonzalez wrote the very memo which encouraged "Abu Ghraib" (the holy grail of the left).

Gonzales has said on several occasions that the memos he wrote, including one written in January 2002 that was often cited by Democrats, did not endorse torture tactics but merely described that terrorists are not signatories to the Geneva Conventions (search), which prohibit certain interrogation techniques.

But Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill. tried to make a link between the memos and abuses at prisons run by U.S. troops abroad.

"At the very least Mr. Gonzales helped to create a permissive environment that made it more likely that abuses would take place," Durbin said on Wednesday. "You could connect the dots from the administration's legal memos to the Defense Department's (search) approval of abusive interrogation techniques for Guantanamo Bay to Iraq and Abu Ghraib."

Alia Vibe: Is this like the test where they throw a woman in water and if she can swim she's declared a witch? And then they burn her at the stake or press her under stones?

Mata -- this is WHAT the Dems are doing! I know the Honorable Clarence Thomas called it a "technical lynching" (and in his case it was); but these "hearings" so resemble hearings by Cotton Mather or even Torquemada preludes. It's bad.
