    This exposes the right's whacko attitude on reality. The FBI acted according to law, according to their procedures. They got the guy. They followed our laws. They got tons of intel from this guy without using torture. Imagine that!

    He was treated just as the shoe bomber was. Did you complain about his arrest? Hell no. Why not? Because your boy, dubya, was prez then. He too was arrested and the city of Boston was ready to try him in a civilian court. He plead guilty and was shipped off to a federal prison. No cries of outrage, only success.

    Your hypocrisy is too funny to be taken seriously.

    The AG hasn't done it's job for administrations now. What makes you think that Obama would be any different? The AG is a political seat now, it was supposed to be removed enough from the system to provide oversight; but that's not how it's used.

    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?
    Very unlikely, as it doesn't look like any of the positions that he advanced in those briefs were really that different than positions he's stated before. That's why I said that it's hard to impute bad faith, but it's still very odd.

    In that their job is different? Yes. In terms of the importance of their past legal positions? Not at all.

    Contrary to the right's desire, not every mistake is a conspiracy. I don't think he actually argued any of these before SCOTUS. He signed a brief. Who knows how those were collected to be handed over before his confirmation. He could have been assured they would be in the pile and then a secretary didn't put one pile on top of the other.
    Again, you don't really seem to understand how important an amicus brief is. This is not something that you do all the time, so you just happen to forget about it. If the average person who filed a dozen amicus briefs was handed a form asking him to list them all, not only could he do so by memory, but he could probably also explain each case in detail. The idea that he forgot seven of them (and that none of the people helping him put this together remembered either) strains credulity.

    I see he gets no credit for coming forward with the mistake.
    Because he didn't.

    OMG, some procedural mistakes were made. Names not matched. Run for the hills! In the end they got exactly what they wanted to get. So what are Repubs complaining about? Anything they can. They're like a bunch of bitchy little girls whining that the wind blew over their tea party (pun intended!).

    If the guy got away THEN you could cry for a reason. If the guy had lots of intel that only came out after another bomb went off THEN you could whine. But, none of that happened.

    You guys can't even allow yourselves to applaud when something this serious is dealt with efficiently and effectively so that more Americans are not put at risk.

    Pathetic and un-American.

    Re: Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    Question: are these briefs part of the public record? If so, I find the likelihood of intentional misconduct low, since you have to know they will be found. Would not eliminate the possibility, but I think it significantly lowers it.

    It almost certainly should be looked into, and if it was intentional, he should be gone. If not, and was just incompetence, then he should get his incompetence publicized.

    Yes, which is why it's odd that nobody helping him prepare for confirmation found them and equally odd that nobody opposing his confirmation found them until now.

    The truth of the matter is that YOU don't know why those briefs weren't turned over. For someone who likes to portray that you know and care so much about the law you don't seem very interested in giving him the benefit of the doubt or at least wait until you hear what happened in lieu of no evidence to support your condemnation of him.

    Because he didn't.
    Please keep up with the rest of us. I already admitted I missed that point.
