Gonzo's Greatest Hits

I first posted this on my own blog Feb. 8, 2006. With AGAG so much in the news I thought it worth another look. Perhaps one of these was the electronic surveillance program Fredo wanted to discuss in the hospital with John Ashcroft.

During Monday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings into Bush's illegal domestic spying program, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales stated:

"President Washington, President Lincoln, President Wilson, President Roosevelt have all authorized electronic surveillance on a far broader scale."

In honor of Presidents' Day, I offer these long-lost images of Washington and Lincoln explaining their domestic electronic surveillance programs.
