I am sure he wouldn't remember even if they did.

So there is something about his time in office he can remember.

"We didn't subpoena, we preferred the torture route."

I'm no doctor, but I'm pretty sure González has full blown Alzheimers.

I thought Gonzalez couldn't recall?

No. Wait. Don't tell me. The gallery plane incident. Wouldn't do to find info implicating your own administration in the leak.

I swear to God, there was a situation (that I'm not going to tell you anything about) when we decided not to do what Obama's done.

Maybe if the sentence was "He promised to balance the deficit, but Bush didnt do it"  or something similar..

So, he can recall when it will look good for his political affiliation.

Got it.

I'm left wondering if the unsaid went something like this....

"And sometimes, the department finds itself in a situation where they have exhausted all means and they have to make a very hard determination as to whether or not they want to subpoena the reporter, if they want to subpoena the reporter's notes. So yes, I've had that situation. In the instance that I have in mind, we ultimately decided not to move forward" -- "on the subpoenas for the reporter's notes, and just pulled the phone records that we were regularly pulling without warrants or subpoenas, relying on Letters of National Security, a method, if you remember,  we were fond of using."

Just a thought.

Also of note, he qualified that last sentence with "In the instance that I have in mind ", an absolutely awesome way of making a one-time decision seem like it was the normal modus operandi when taken in context.

He didn't say they never did it. He specifically said that of all the times when they could have, he can remember one time they didn't do it.

That's like explaining how you're faithful to your wife because you can remember one time that you didn't cheat on her

"There was at least one occasion in which we were engaged in a very serious leak investigation and we had to make some very difficult choices about whether or not to move forward, going after the reporters in order to try to figure out where the source of the leak is,"

The Valerie Plame thing no doubt.

hasty ambush: [24.media.tumblr.com image 300x300]


I submitted this with an image 15 times longer for Bush.

Seriously, you got nothing.  NOTHING.

I see those words all the time. Usually in reference to something Bush did being blamed on Taxes O'houlihan and his Magical Mystery Time Machine.
