Letter to the Editor
The Bush administration and Attorney General Gonzales don’t want to testify to Congress under oath. Congress is ready to subpoena them to force them to testify. Bush threatens a constitutional showdown if they do. Can a compromise be reached? Is there a way that Gonzales and Rove can be questioned in a way that the Bush administration would approve of?
Bush and Gonzales have vigorously defended the use of secret prisons in foreign countries as a way of getting to the truth. Both have stated to Congress that they are totally legal, that they are not torture, and that they are effective. So maybe we should send Gonzales and Rove to a secret foreign prison for questioning. How could they object to that? I bet the Democrats would go along with that.
