Accepting responsibility

Here we go again with the admin's take on how to accept responsibility without actually doing so.

According to WH attorney Gonzales, "mistakes were made." DUH!
Oh yes and he'll be sure to investigate those "mistakes" like Ashcroft did while heading the original investigation into the leaking of Valerie Plame's identity.

No way....we need an independent person to oversee the investigation of the Department of Justice. It is not supposed to be yet another branch of the shrub - it is or used to be there to protest the Constitution and the citizens - not to run ramshod over both.

Bring on an Independent investigator like Fitzgerald - but we know they wont ask him again - he did not play nice with the WH.

Great minds and esp and all

after I posted the above - along came my BuzzFlash afternoon Buzz

and we are on the same page

They have a link to CREW's blog HERE where this is said:

CREW wants the immediate appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate potential criminal violations related to the recent dismissals of eight U.S. Attorneys. Recent revelations indicate that a top-ranking Department of Justice official knew that statements made by top Department officials were not true. Clearly, the Department of Justice cannot investigate itself and prosecute the misconduct of DOJ officials. CREW also asked the Department of Justice’s Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility to investigate the situation.
