WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department must respond within 20 days to requests by a civil liberties group for documents about President George W. Bush’s domestic eavesdropping program, a federal judge ruled on Thursday.


“Given the great public and media attention that the government’s warrantless surveillance program has garnered and the recent hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the public interest is particularly well served by the timely release of the requested documents,” he said.

No doubt Attorney-General Gonzales will find some reason to claim that the current Federal Administration does not have to obey the judicial branch, just as he has found reasons that it does not have to obey the legislative branch.

Once he retires from government “service,” he would have a great future manufacturing a signature Philadelphia foodstuff.
