Chertoff (Chertoff cho Chertoff, banana fanna Jerkoff, if you play the "blame game") press conference is another Proclamation. He sets unreasonable groundrules for the press, refuses to answer direct questions.
Too bad there's no oversight crafted in our Democracy to keep a watchful eye on career political hacks and lawyers put in charge of things they're not qualified to manage.
Come to think of it, this proclamation was really no different from Fristy Hastert's the other day, announcing a "bipartisan" Congressional inquiry (where Republicans will not only chair, but outnumber, Democrats) will investigate the government's response. Proclaim, turn, walk away. It's the Fristy Hastert way.
