You Don't Have to Tell the Truth THIS Time. *wink*

The Hearings on the NSA spying on Americans w/o a warrant get started this morning. First up, Alberto Gonzales. He's the US AG and the go-to man whenever the bush administration wants some legal justification for whatever new idea they want to try out. Gonzales has been a good bit inconsistent in his explanation of how the Bush White House is spying on Americans without a warrant.

In light of this, Senate Committee Chair Arlen Specter (R, PA-A guy I actually like OK) decided Gonzales didn't have to testify under oath (thus no perjury for lying) even though he's testified before this committee previously under oath. This just seems unwise if not naive considering the situation.
