Two Important Articles on the Bush Administration

Sadly, we aren't done with these guys yet. The first article is about the new book published by the first Secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, (Test of Our Times) and how he was pressured by Donald Rumsfeld and John Ashcroft to raise the threat level before the 2004 election. He also talks about other frustrations with the Bush Administration.

The other article is about Karl Rove and Harriet Miers being called to testify again on the U.S. Attorneys firing. This is a case that may have criminal implications.

Does every administration break laws sometime? Probably so. But there was ushc a pervasive pattern of at least questionable actions by the Bush administration, and not prosecuting anyone for them undermines the rule of law.
