    So true. And how quickly the right forgets the errors of the last administration that really were criminal and could fill volumes.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Did you even read the article? 2 briefs were on Jose Padilla.

    Remember who he was? Not exactly a small fish.

    But no shock you would dismiss it since it involves liberals in breaches of ethics.

    3) They make him look bad so they deliberately withheld them so the Senate could not ask about them during his confirmation.

    I'm not saying its a smoking gun, but this is by no means a non-story.

    If John Roberts had failed to mention two briefs that he had written arguing that Roe should have been overturned and that accused terrorists should have no rights, you don't think that we'd be in the middle of two weeks of hearings right now?

    Wow. How quickly you forget General Alberto Gonzales who couldn't quite remember anything much about just anything important!

    You, sir, should look to the log in your eye!

    General Holder signed one additional brief about Jose Padilla than was disclosed during the nomination process. The other six of the seven undisclosed briefs signed by him “related to issues such as race discrimination and a challenge to a prison sentence.”

    While the oversight is regrettable, does anybody believe any of these seven briefs would have altered the Senate advice and consent process? No. I didn't think so.

    this situation speaks to the AG being half assed at best, if not dishonest

    do those who lean to the republican side believe that the disclosure of these briefs would have resulted in a different confirmation decision? if so, why?

    Exactly. And the silence will continue until it's time to discuss the missing John Yoo emails.

    Might we have taken this precedence and asked him what he was going to do with Gitmo detainees? Should he have stated then that he planned on offering them lawyers and civilian courts....would that have affected the process?
