Federal judges are jeopardizing national security by issuing rulings contradictory to President Bush's decisions on America's obligations under international treaties and agreements, Attorney General John Ashcroft said Friday.- Attribution
In his first remarks since his resignation was announced Tuesday, Ashcroft forcefully denounced what he called "a profoundly disturbing trend" among some judges to interfere in the president's constitutional authority to make decisions during war.
"The danger I see here is that intrusive judicial oversight and second-guessing of presidential determinations in these critical areas can put at risk the very security of our nation in a time of war," Ashcroft said in a speech to the Federalist Society, a conservative lawyers' group.
Got that? Judges shouldn't be allowed to disagree with Bush on legal matters.
"Intrusive judicial oversight." Ashcroft actually thinks the GOVERNMENT as the right ro be free of intrusion from CITIZENS, instead of the other way around.
Just think: Bush put this clown in charge of the nation's law enforcement.
