Rove Was In On The Attorney Massacre And early on, too. Apparently he was discussing it with Gonzales while Alberto was still to be confirmed as Attorney General.
You know, I'll say this for Ashcroft: he was a complete moron, and this seems to have prevented him from doing much, and as all he could have done was damage, that's good. He wasn't imaginative enough for the Pinochet tactics of Gonzales.
Also: Harriet Meiers, whom Bush wanted on the Supreme Court, was also a planner in this operation.
But if you know you're doing things you'll later be prosecuted for, and you have the power to cull anyone smart or competent enough to consider doing it, if you're Bush, you go for it.
