Gonzales cut short a news conference in Chicago yesterday when an aide halted questions about the firings. The appearance had been scheduled to last 15 minutes; Gonzales walked out after less than three.
Since seven U.S. attorneys were dismissed on Dec. 7 — an eighth was sacked several months earlier — Gonzales and his aides have issued conflicting statements about the reasons for the firings, have been contradicted by documents on key facts and have continued to send out mixed messages about core issues in the removal of the prosecutors.
He shortens his appearance, doesn’t give any real explanation, still he promises to be more precise.
But isn’t being precise one of the major requirements for professionals in the field of law?Mixed messages… Ok, the blame game is played. Remember the 13 deadly sins?
Shouldn’t Alberto R. Gonzales rather start asking and find out what happened?
Or is this just another case of micromanagement?
