Ashcroft, the PATRIOT ACT & Lost American Freedoms
|Americans Against World Empire, Inc Homepage
3/22/05 Note a general update. The criticism of Ashcroft should be tempered by newer reports. In particular the NY TIMES reported that, in White House meetings, Ashcroft was the only one objecting to torture of POW's. Also that the FBI opposed strongly the torture, that CIA and military lied to prisoners stating that they were FBI agents when they were not, that most of the egregious, programmed violations came directly from Cheney and the Defense Department neoconservative bosses, also not from the regular military. Now we know also that Ashcroft battled against Bush/Cheney gang to defend constitutional freedoms. He is a good man. Ed.
