No One Is Right But Me (and Gonzales)!

AP: "Attorney General Alberto Gonzales approved plans to fire several U.S. attorneys in an hourlong meeting last fall, according to documents released Friday that indicate he was more involved in the dismissals than he has claimed. Last week, Gonzales said he 'was not involved in any discussions about what was going on' in the firings of eight prosecutors that has since led to a political firestorm and calls for his ouster."

Me: "Gonzales never stated or implied he was not involved in the actual firing of the attorneys, which is what this meeting was about. He only stated he was not involved in the process of determining which people would be on the list of people to be fired."

Gonzales: "When I said on March 13th that I wasn't involved, what I meant was that I had not been involved, was not involved in the deliberations over whether or not United States attorneys should resign. ... Now, of course, ultimately at the end of the process or near the end of the process, the recommendations were presented to me. ... And so there was obviously a discussion with respect to that recommendation. ... I was not involved in the deliberations during the process as to who should or should not be asked to resign."
