WASHINGTON — Attorney General Alberto Gonzales acknowledged that mistakes were made and accepted responsibility Tuesday for the way eight federal prosecutors were fired.
At a Justice Department news conference, Gonzales said he would find out why Congress was not told sooner that the White House was involved in discussions of who would be fired and when. He did not back away, however, from his stance that the dismissals that did take place were appropriate.
"I stand by the decision and I think it was the right decision," Gonzales said.
[No, never mind; D'Agostino will just say about RRW, "I stand by the decision and I think it was the right decision." (As Bush would say, "I accept responsibility for the ___ decision, but none of the blame.")
