6. Political or ideological?
I don't believe this is a partisan matter. It never has been. That's just the cloak the neocons threw over it to keep us fighting and distracted from what was really going on. And what was really going on was a coup.

Look at all they've managed to achieve within the justice department without anyone noticing till last year. The people who wrote that letter are scared. Justice wasn't the first to go down, but it's perhaps the most decisive victory for the neocons. Nationwide, our legal institutions are now in the control of anti-American operatives posing as conservatives.

At this point can we trust ANY government agency to put democracy and the rule of law above ideological ambitions?

And Americans still believe fascism could never take root here. Well, look closely, America. It's not only taken root, it's settled in and making itself comfortable. And many in Congress are making excuses for it.
