are your opinion, I'm not sure how I could begin to call them true or false. The term "spin" doesn't imply something is false, by the way. It implies that someone is putting facts and circumstances in the best light possible. The attempt here to "explain" why the Congress and Sen. Leahy in particular has failed yet again to stand up to the President certainly appears to be doing that to me. He tricked us! Leahy said all that tough stuff, but then evil Bush installed a "Gonzales clone" who is in there destroying evidence, so really what choice did he have? So see, it's not a cave at all.
I would submit, if the acting attorney general is actively destroying evidence as you suggest and others are openly in contempt of Congress, Sen. Leahy has more options at his disposal to deal with those matters than quickly confirming Mukasey.
