Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

"We Cannot Investigate"

Since when does the target of an investigation get to determine the scope of the scrutiny they find themselves under? Since when does the executive branch have the authority to close off attempts to be held responsible for illegal behavior?
 
This is the Latin Americanization of American politics happening in plain view. Our government has become a banana republic. The tools of oversight of the executive branch in the legislature and within executive branch offices are getting shutdown by the actions of their target. I look at this sad reality and wonder what the Bush administration values protecting about America? Is this illegality rooted in a misguided defense of an ideal enshrined somewhere in our Constitution, Bill of Rights, or Declaration of Independence that Bush feels must be preserved from some new threat? If so, what is it? What are our troops fighting and dying to protect while we at home watch our civil liberties and the potential for government accountability get ripped from our hands?
