Ashcroft Can’t Get No Satisfaction

Amusing little tidbit:

…from United Press International:

“Former Attorney General John Ashcroft this week became the only Cabinet-level Bush official to attack the Sept. 11 Commission, writing in his memoirs it "seemed obsessed with trying to lay the blame for the terrorist attacks at the feet of the Bush administration, while virtually absolving the previous administration of responsibility."

...and from CBS News, July 26, 2001:

"Fishing rod in hand, Attorney General John Ashcroft left on a weekend trip to Missouri Thursday afternoon aboard a chartered government jet, reports CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart.

In response to inquiries from CBS News over why Ashcroft was traveling exclusively by leased jet aircraft instead of commercial airlines, the Justice Department cited what it called a 'threat assessment' by the FBI, and said Ashcroft has been advised to travel only by private jet for the remainder of his term."

It seems that you just can’t please some people.

The self-anointed Mr. Ashcroft apparently believes that the Commission didn’t bend over backwards far enough to exonerate the Dubya Administration.

He really would do well not to draw more attention to himself.
