    <center><h2><a href=http://www.americanprogressaction.org/site/pp.asp?c=klLWJcP7H&b=127982>Shameless Hypocrisy</a></h2></center>

    <blockquote>Within one day of the politically-timed leak about an investigation into a missing National Archives document, the White House has been caught in a lie about the matter. When the leak first was made public, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said, "the first we became aware of it was upon seeing the media reports." Today, however, AP reports the "Justice Department notified the office of White House legal counsel Alberto Gonzalez about the probe before news of it leaked to the media Monday." The New York Times quotes an anonymous administration officials who says top Bush aides were informed of the investigation. This is the same Justice Department headed by Attorney General John Ashcroft – a man who said on 10/16/03 that "Leaks are a serious matter... if [people] purposefully leak information [they are] suborning the national security in the interests of the United States to some interests of their own." Ashcroft has so far said nothing about his Department's politically timed leak of an investigation that started 10 months ago, but was leaked just 48 hours before the release of the 9/11 Commission report, which is expected to be critical of President Bush.</blockquote>

    Yet again, the Administration displays its moral bankruptcy and, apparently, revels in it. Another carefully timed leak to distract from issues that the Administration will find embarassing.

    But the only embarassment here is Dubbyuh's administration and its blatant hypocrisy. Talk tough on the matter of leaks from within the administration, until it is convenient for them to do the leaking.

    Your logic, as ever, is flawed. Dismissed.

    I'll give you this - you've got some nerve squawking about moral bankruptcy as you present your perverted and distorted view of this administration. Your assertion that the Bush administration will be embarrassed by the 9-11 commission report has gone up in smoke. You can't even prove that the Berger episode was leaked by the administration, yet you waste no time jumping to conclusions and putting on your best holier-than-thou act. And so what if it was leaked? You worried about the truth getting out? (rhetorical question, the answer is obviously yes)

    Moral bankruptcy my ass. How the hell would you know? Ethical behavior is a moral tenet and from the distortions and outright bullshit I've seen you post, I doubt that you'd recognize a moral if one bit you on the ass.

    How many times does this troll have to be proven wrong and humilated before he finally leaves or is banned?

    Thats rhetorical right? Its like how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop or how many chicks will clinton bang before he's satisfied. I don't think there is an exact answer.

    There no need to ban him. We need a reminder of the kinds of idiots we're dealing with here.
