Washington Post on Gonzalez

This Washington Post editorial states the obvious about potential Attorney General Alberto Gonzales; that he should never, never, never get the job. Still, it's well worth reading.

"It is nevertheless indisputable that Mr. Gonzales oversaw and approved a decision to disregard the Geneva Conventions for detainees from Afghanistan; that he endorsed interrogation methods that military and FBI professionals regarded as illegal and improper; and that he supported the indefinite detention of both foreigners and Americans without due process. To confirm such an official as attorney general is to ratify decisions that are at odds with fundamental American values."
