Who is Alberto Gonzales?
Steve Watson/Infowars.net | Nov 11 2004
Gonzales has been covering Bush's back for years and is now being rewarded with a high profile spot in the administration. Gonzales is also a compromised character, fitting the mould perfectly for his elite puppet masters.
Gonzales was most recently
counsel to the president and recipient of the infamous internal White House
memo from Aug. 1, 2002, signed by then-Assistant Attorney General Jay S.
Bybee which put Bush above the law and "...argued darkly that torturing
al-Qaida captives "may be justified" and that international laws
against torture "may be unconstitutional if applied to interrogations"
conducted under President Bush. The memo then continued for 50 pages to
make the case for the use of torture."
The leaked memo claimed that the importance of gaining information about possible future terror attacks from people suspected of links to terrorist groups "renders obsolete Geneva's strict limitations on questioning of enemy prisoners."
"Gonzales also has connections to scandal-ridden energy giant Enron. He is a former partner in the Houston law firm Vinson and Elkins, which represented Enron. He also received $6,500 in campaign contributions from the company when he ran for re-election to the Texas Supreme Court."
"In 1996...Gonzales, as Bush's general counsel, managed to get the then-Texas governor excused from jury duty, thus saving Bush from having to disclose a 1976 arrest for drunk driving."
