Laws? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Laws!

The Justice Department, headed up by the eternal amnesiac Alberto Gonzales has found another law that doesn't apply to the White House, the Freedom of Information Act. I guess its time to file away all those Nixon tapes again.

Justice Dept. argues limits of FOIA law

By PETE YOST, Associated Press Writer 44 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Opening a new front in the Bush administration's battle to keep its records confidential, the Justice Department is contending that the White House Office of Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

The department's argument is in response to a lawsuit trying to force the office to reveal what it knows about the disappearance of White House e-mails.

The Office of Administration provides administrative services, including information technology support, to the Executive Office of the President. Most of the White House is not subject to the FOIA, but certain components within it handle FOIA requests. Last year the Office of Administration processed 65 FOIA requests.

This sneering administration is above the law. I can only hope that those corrupt congreffs punks find themselves on the wrong side of the dictatorship some day.
