wow now THIS is getting REALLY good!

they (gonzo gonzales and buds) claimed former us attorney david iglesias was an 'absentee landlord' spending TOO MUCH TIME AWAY FROM HIS JOB

guess WHY former us attorney david iglesias was away from his job? HE WAS DOING HIS DUTY AS AN OFFICER IN THE NAVEL RESERVE

this brings me GREAT delight (NOT the part where he was acutally fired of course. i'm sure former us attorney iglesias suffered when he was fired). MORE evidence (NOT that it will make ONE bit of difference. the amercian people seem to be letting ALL of this slide by. they are NOT demanding their congress people start impeachment proceedings against this INSANE administration..........anyway, i rant too much. here's the article

Docked for Duty?"

The Justice Department called David Iglesias, the U.S. attorney in New Mexico, an 'absentee landlord'—a key reason listed for his firing last December. Just one problem: Iglesias, a captain in the Navy Reserve, was off teaching classes as part of the war on terror. Now Iglesias is striking back, arguing he was improperly dismissed.

Newsweek

April 4, 2007 - When he wasn’t doing his day job as U.S. attorney in New Mexico, David Iglesias was a captain in the Navy Reserve, teaching foreign military officers about international terrorism
But Iglesias’s military service in support of what the Pentagon likes to call the Global War on Terror (GWOT) apparently didn’t go down well with his superiors at the Justice Department. Recently released documents show that one reason aides to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales cited in justifying the decision to fire Iglesias as U.S attorney late last year was that he was an “absentee landlord” who was spending too much time away from the office.........

....;/The OSC’s inquiry into the Iglesias case—first reported this week in NEWSWEEK— injects yet another irony to the controversy over the U.S. attorney firings.
The Bush administration has vigorously promoted enforcement of USERRA—in large part because of the dramatic increase in National Guard and military reserve members who have been called into active duty due to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The law’s purpose—highlighted by Gonzales himself in a Justice Department press release last summer—is to make sure reservists and National Guard members don’t suffer in the workplace when they are called to serve their country............

Yes, Rose, impeachment is the only logical step.

They really do hate the soldiers, don't they? Love the war, hate the warrior. Love the Army, hate the soldier. On and on and on and on.

I really despise this pack of administration criminals that the right-wing nitwits have allowed Usurper rights over the constitution.

This was revealed when he testified at the hearing.

Lying is kind of like potato chips, you can't tell just one. This administration makes a habit of lying even though they get caught time after time.

Hell yes bush should be impeached along with about half the Republican Congress
