Give me a break. Of course Shrub knew about the memo. Sounds more like Mueller and Ashcroft are just trying to protect Bush, knowing that the American public, stupid as it is, stupid as we are, will just accept it.
And of course David Corn at Alternet has something to point out as well, and that is, the Bush crowd's fondness for secrecy. Thanks, John, for pointing out the Corn article.
