Alberto Gonzales: Not the TSP

Posted by: Hammer / 8:23 AM

Alberto Gonzales, Tuesday in a colloquy with Sen. Schumer:

"Not the TSP?" responded Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y. "Come on. If you say it's about other, that implies not. Now say it or not."

"It was not," Gonzales answered. "It was about other intelligence activities."

From the AP, today:

A four-page memo from the national intelligence director's office shows that the White House briefing with the eight lawmakers on March 10, 2004, was about the terror surveillance program, or TSP.

The memo, dated May 17, 2006, and addressed to then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert, details "the classification of the dates, locations, and names of members of Congress who attended briefings on the Terrorist Surveillance Program," wrote then-Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte.

It shows that the briefing in March 2004 was attended by the Republican and Democratic House and Senate leaders and top Intelligence Committee members, as Gonzales testified.

It's too early to call Gonzales a liar -- but this contradiction will be awfully difficult to explain away.

Prevaricator has a much nicer ring to it. He is the dictator's Attorney General, after all.
