From the Associated Press: Documents Contradict Gonzales Testimony

(AP) Documents indicate eight congressional leaders were briefed about the Bush administration’s terrorist surveillance program on the eve of its expiration in 2004, contradicting sworn Senate testimony this week by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

The documents, obtained by The Associated Press, come as senators consider whether a perjury investigation should be opened into conflicting accounts about the program and a dramatic March 2004 confrontation leading up to its potentially illegal reauthorization.

Of course, the ever witty Ms Mad Kane condenses the all of the testimony in a limerick.

UPDATE: FBI director appears to contradict Gonzales’ testimony. Also Arlen Specter reverses himself when it looks like people might actually do something about it.

He is either very dumb or so confident that he will be protected by Bush that he just doesn’t seem to care. If you are going to lie under oath to Congress at least do it where you cannot be be found to be lying with printed documents within minutes.

These people lie when the truth would be to their advantage. It’s part of their pathology, and they do it automatically. It’s almost as if they are afraid if they tell the truth about anything, they won’t be able to stop.

Perhaps it’s the result of living and working in the alternate universe that the White House has become.
