The matter of the Central Intelligence Agency interrogation tapes – and questions about who should investigate their destruction – may be Attorney General Michael Mukasey's first big challenge at the Department of Justice.
Mr. Mukasey has asked Congress and the courts to let his department and the CIA handle the initial probe. Outside inquiries might complicate Justice efforts to figure out what really happened, said Mukasey in a Dec. 14 letter to a US district judge.
I applaude Mr. Mukasey for asking Congress to stay out of this matter, because knowing the Democrats, and their tendency to come to ill conceived judgements, this thing would be blown clear out of proportion, combined with the fact that they are looking for every excuse under the sun to try and impeach President Bush.
It's a constant battle, folks, though it be tiring, it's one that must be waged, lest the odds be found against us ... because the fact is, Terrorism is a dilemma that isn't going away anytime in the near future. Should there be another, even worse assault on American soil than September 11, 2001, it is safe to say that it would disrupt our moral compass much more than it is right now, especially if we were to later learn that we missed a chance to stop it from happening!!!!!
