ivins on ashcroft

Molly Ivins on the recent Ashcroft testimony:

When, in future, you find yourself wondering, "Whatever happened to the Constitution?" you will want to go back and look at June 8, 2004. That was the day the attorney general of the United States - a.k.a. "the nation's top law enforcement officer" - refused to provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with his department's memos concerning torture.
