Thank God for John Ashcroft!?

Melissa McEwan: John Ashcroft tells the truth about Gonzales and illegal eavesdropping. Truth, once again, has an anti-Bush bias
Let me tell you something I thought would never happen.

I never thought in a million jillion gazillion years that I would say, "Thank the Baby Jesus for John Ashcroft."
Former Attorney General John Ashcroft confirmed the Bush administration was sharply divided over the legality of President Bush's most controversial eavesdropping work, the chairman of a congressional panel said Thursday.
"It is very apparent to us that there was robust and enormous debate within the administration about the legal basis for the president's surveillance program," House Intelligence Committee Chairman Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, told reporters after a closed-door meeting with Ashcroft.
