“Palace Revolt” Story


The latest issue of Newsweek has a story on the internal debates within the Bush Administration’s Justice Department about the legality and propriety of various Administration policies related to the War on Terror. In particular, it alleges that several individuals with impeccable conservative credentials, including Jack Goldsmith and Patrick Philbin, were concerned that some were stretching Executive power beyond its proper constitutional scope. I think those of us who may be inclined to defend the administration’s position on these questions should take very seriously that the likes of Goldsmith though otherwise. (Hat tip: VC)
