Brass Ones X 2...

Newsweek - Feb. 6, 2006 issue - James Comey resigned as deputy attorney general in the summer of 2005. The press and public hardly noticed. Comey's farewell speech, delivered in the Great Hall of the Justice Department, contained all the predictable, if heartfelt, appreciations. But mixed in among the platitudes was an unusual passage. Comey thanked "people who came to my office, or my home, or called my cell phone late at night, to quietly tell me when I was about to make a mistake; they were the people committed to getting it right—and to doing the right thing—whatever the price. These people," said Comey, "know who they are. Some of them did pay a price for their commitment to right, but they wouldn't have it any other way."

One of those people, NEWSWEEK reports, was former assistant attorney general Jack Goldsmith.

Yes, Comey did pay a price for justice and integrity. Yet, another fine prosecutor bowed out. It is people like Comey and Goldsmith that looked in a mirror everyday and know that they were doing right by people. Too bad so many qualified and fine prosecutors are stepping down. Speaking of Goldsmith, is it ironic his book: "Who controls the Internet" is like art imitating life? His book entails an idea that the Internet might liberate us forever from the government. And now, the government is invading the Internet and users' privacy:)

Roy,

I agree. Goldsmith would be perfect to replace Hillman. Goldsman is tenacious person to see the Abramoff case through to the end.

Cheers!

Now we know who can sleep at night with a clear conscious while others can't and look as bad as Bush, Rove, Libby and Cheney. An old saying comes to mind " be carefull what you wish for". I think we'll see the results of that statement as this corrupt criminal Administration unfolds.
