    Way to completely ignore the issue. Why were they fired? Who ordered the firing?

    And, sans links to credible sources, I guess we're just supposed to take your word for it.

    Note Scorpion from Scorpion:
    We did point the stuff out to the Military and they have found allot of stuff you do understand that the search is still going on and will be going on for quite a long time (Saddam) hide allot of stuff all over Iraq and other Countries.

    As for the Fed Prosc. so I guess you must have been living out of the Country when Mr. Clinton did it then huh or maybe your were in Outer Space that's it.

    For about the 500th time, the prosecutors served at the President's pleasure, which meant that he could have fired them based on the advice of a talking shoehorn.

    Please review the Clinton era firings of far larger numbers or Federal prosecutors for political reasons.

    Carry on.

    Willy didn't just fire a large number of ADA's. He fired 98; all but 5, I think.

    Now that's an interesting point. Would you apply that standard to the current grossly incompetent administration?

    "Legal" means saying you can or cannot.

    "Ethical or right" means saying you should or should not.

    The first one merits an investigation by Congress, the DoJ, or whatever other organ of government possesses the particular competence to do so.

    The second merits second and third rounds of beer, and that's about it.

    Like I said....perfect example of the Bush Mantra - "Can we get away with it"....rather than "Is it the right thing to do".

    Thank you for the demonstration.

    Well, "legal", and, "right", aren't always in the same ballpark. The argument that we've heard from the Libbos is that Bush broke the law firing those ADAs. You've never put forth the argument that it, "was wrong, just wrong". We could have found common ground if the goofy Libbos would have taken that stance, maybe.

    Clinton fired Bush 1's prosecutors and Bush 2 fired Clinton's prosecutors. That's the way it works. But then Bush 2 fired his own prosecutors because they weren't manufacturing enough fake cases against Democrats. That's where the issue is.
