Leahy: Gonzales 'has not been truthful'
Lawyer Blog News | 2007/04/02 16:41

US Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) Sunday rejected attempts by the Bush administration to move up the date that US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is scheduled to testify regarding his role in the firings of eight US Attorneys. White House counselor Dan Bartlett urged the US Senate Judiciary Committee to push up Gonzales' testimony from April 17 to next week, but committee chairman Leahy said Gonzales himself chose the mid-April date after declining earlier offered dates, so the schedule would not be changed now.

Meanwhile, comments made by Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) regarding Gonzales' inconsistent explanations of his involvement in the firings did not resound with confidence in the attorney general. McConnell did not express his own backing of Gonzales, but said President Bush has confidence in Gonzales "at the moment."

Hick's father says plea deal proves case corruption
Lawyer Blog News | 2007/04/01 17:23

Guantanamo inmate David Hicks, gagged from speaking to the media, will soon return to Australia from Cuba under a plea deal that reflects the weakness of the prosecution case and political needs of a close US ally, his father said today.

"The military commission system is transparent all right – transparently corrupt," Terry Hicks said, exuberant about the leniency of his son's sentence but still furious about the treatment the 31-year-old Muslim convert has endured for five years.

David Hicks will serve a nine-month sentence in a prison in his hometown of Adelaide after admitting last week that he aided al-Qaida in a plea deal at the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

The deal prevents him from talking to the media for 12 months or pursuing his allegations of abuse while in US custody.

Legal observers and opposition lawmakers have joined Terry Hicks in saying the deal is tailored to remove potential political embarrassment for Australian Prime Minister John Howard, who will seek his fifth three-year term as national leader at elections due later this year.
