DOJ Failures Should Be Getting More Play

Here's something I don't understand: why is it that the failures of the Department of Justice do not get more play? Ashcroft and Co. have (to use a Bushian word) overexaggerated every so-called "terrorist cell" and have failed to get convictions or have plea bargained down to nearly nothing. The Detroit cases have to be thrown out because of a corrupt prosecutor and the Buffalo cases were a joke to begin with. Not to even mention "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla, who of course was no such thing. This is yet another "plays a tough guy on TV" situation, but no one, except maybe the Washington Post, is making this a major story.

I agree. It's infuriating. I'm also a blue in a red state. :)
