Ashcroft Condemns Judges Who Question Bush


Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal judges are jeopardizing national security by issuing rulings contradictory to President Bush's decisions on America's obligations under international treaties and agreements, Attorney General John Ashcroft said Friday.

In his first remarks since his resignation was announced Tuesday, Ashcroft forcefully denounced what he called ``a profoundly disturbing trend'' among some judges to interfere in the president's constitutional authority to make decisions during war.

--Would someone please sit this evil clone of the Pillsbury doughboy down and read the Constitution to him?

``The danger I see here is that intrusive judicial oversight and second-guessing of presidential determinations in these critical areas can put at risk the very security of our nation in a time of war,'' Ashcroft said in a speech to the Federalist Society, a conservative lawyers group.

---Conservative? If they didn't rise as one and throw feces at that man, they're obviously more radical than Stokely Carmichael, even if less literate or coherent.

The Justice Department announced this week it would seek to overturn a ruling by U.S. District Judge James Robertson in the case of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, who the government contends was Osama bin Laden's driver.

Robertson halted Hamdan's trial by military commission in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, rejecting the Bush administration's position that the Geneva Conventions governing prisoners of war do not apply to al-Qaida members because they are not soldiers of a true state and do not fight by international norms.

---If we ARE "at war,"that catch-all justification for whatever wet dream of absolute authority this fool is fondling, then THEY ARE prisoners of war.

Without mentioning that case specifically, Ashcroft criticized rulings he said found ``expansive private rights in treaties where they never existed'' that run counter to the broad discretionary powers given the president by the Constitution.

``Courts are not equipped to execute the law. They are not accountable to the people,'' Ashcroft said.

--Again, would someone read him the Constitution. Courts were not intended to be accountable to the mob, which is pretty much what he means when he says, "The people." Hell -- "The People" -- he brings to mind Jerry Rubin on speed.

Anthony Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, compared Ashcroft's remarks to those the attorney general previously made indicating that opponents of administration counterterrorism policies were assisting terrorists. ``It's entirely in line with his overt hostility to dissent, debate and judicial review,'' Romero said.

-- So whaaa? Apparently, he's lobbying for one of the Supreme Court Draft Picks, otherwise, why would he still be giving public blowjobs to Georgie when he's out of the game?
