Attorney general says federal jurists should defer to president's will
WASHINGTON - Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says federal judges are unqualified to make rulings affecting national security policy, ramping up his criticism of how they handle terrorism cases.
In remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday, Gonzales says judges generally should defer to the will of the president and Congress when deciding national security cases. He also raps jurists who “apply an activist philosophy that stretches the law to suit policy preferences.”
Even though it was a public school, back when I was edjamakated we learned of the three separate branches of government, and why it was important that they each limited the actions of the other two. I guess that philosophy is now obsolete.
