THE ISSUE: A special prosecutor is on the job after an investigation
found "significant evidence" of politics in the 2006 dismissal of some U.
S. attorneys.  

The way the other shoe keeps dropping at the U.S. Justice
Department, you'd think the agency was a centipede.

This week's bad news: A new in-house investigation was released,
and it bolstered suspicions that politics played at least some part in
the Justice Department's weird dismissals of nine U.S. attorneys in
2006. Current Attorney General Michael Mukasey appointed a special
prosecutor to see whether criminal charges are warranted against his
predecessor, Alberto Gonzales, as well as other Justice Department
officials.

2. Will The Birmingham News Remain
Clueless to the End?
Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

....Where else does The News not want to go? To "Don Siegelman
Has Been Right All Along Land."

The News acknowledges--and it appears to pain them--that the report
raises questions not only about the unlawful treatment of some
prosecutors but also about the treatment of those who were
prosecuted. That would include Siegelman, Alabama's former
Democratic governor who was prosecuted and convicted in a case
that was dripping with conflicts of interest and political motivations
from those in the Bush Justice Department:

Consider: If some U.S. attorneys were fired for not prosecuting people
that suited Republican interests, were other U.S. attorneys able to
keep their jobs by prosecuting the "right people"?
