The "I Told You So" Department
One exception was this post opposing the confirmation of Alberto Gonzales as attorney general of the United States from January 2005. Recent events have only served to reinforce my conviction at that time. In fact, I deeply suspect that a connection will emerge between the question of justifying torture (which was what exercised me in 2005) and the current scandals about the firing of U.S. attorneys. We'll see.
