THE CONSTITUTION MEANS WHATEVER HE SAYS IT DOES:

Justices Tacitly Backed Use of Guantánamo, Bush Says (SHERYL GAY STOLBERG, 7/08/06, NY Times)

In his most detailed comments to date on the Supreme Court's rejection of his decision to put detainees on trial before military commissions, President Bush said Friday that the court had tacitly approved his use of the detention center at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. [...]

The president also gave an endorsement of sorts to Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor who handled a leak investigation involving Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's chief political adviser.

Mr. Bush said Mr. Fitzgerald, who is also the United States attorney in Chicago, had done a "very professional job" in handling the leak investigation, which resulted in the indictment of I. Lewis Libby Jr., the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney. Mr. Rove was not indicted.


All comedy is conservative.

If Bush keeps saying stuff like that, the left's going to put a different type of red suit on Fitzgerald.

Good job Fitzy! Now that you have established the precedent, for Fitzmas conservatives can look forward to the heads of some editors and reporters along with their leaky conspirators.

Could this not be a Rove psy-op to discredit Fitzgerald in the eyes of the Modern American Left activists? After all, look what he did to Senator Leiberman.
