Financial Times Editorial Blasts Gonzales

Reading around the web today, AltTulsa found this pointed Financial Times editorial on the president's embattled lawyer, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales:

Mr. Gonzales had every right to sack prosecutors, who are political appointees. But he had no right to mislead Congress about why he did so – even though he is now blaming lower officials for the misinformation. Mr. Gonzales has shown a disdain for Congress and the rights of the American people. He has amply proved that he will never be anything other than Mr. Bush’s lawyer – a mere apologist for the imperial presidency. The affair has already claimed one top scalp at the justice department. It is high time Mr. Gonzales stepped down too.
