Why is Gonzales Lying?
I think this might be an easy one. Gonzales is lying to: a) cover Bush's ass and b) cover his own. It's telling (but not surprising at this point) to know that we have an AG who is so concerned about boosting the credibility of Bush's wiretapping scheme (by claiming everyone agreed without a fight) that he was willing to leave his own backside out there to twist in the wind. Now, of course, he's just scrambling. And I see the President is returning the favor.
