Spoiling for a fight?

Gonzales outright lied when he testified to the Senate that the "Gang of Four" meeting of March 2004 was not about the TSP (Terrorist Surveillance Program). And this is provable since documents exist that describe the subject of the March meeting, which was the TSP.

Why did Gonzales say what he did? Especially since he must have known that his answers were checkable on that point. Why did he show up at the Senate without a briefing book?

It's deliberately provocative. It's hard to believe it's the result of incompetence or even arrogance. It smells as if the White House sees political gain if impeachment proceedings are initiated against Gonzales.

CORECTION: I should have written "Gang of Eight". The Gang of Four was a 1970's Chinese group (as referred to in comments).


By all means, let them have it then. It's not like they're tactical geniuses who consistently snatch victory from the jaws of defeat... really more like the other way around.

I wish you wouldn't sully the character of either of the previous Gangs of Four by association with this administration. ;)

Is this Congress actually going to accomplish anything before the next election cycle?
