Why Ashcroft Must Go- by Justin Raimondo: "The attorney general of the United States has been on a witch-hunt since 9/11, and what I want to know is how many others are being held, without charges, without the possibility of defending themselves, and without anyone either knowing or caring? How many swept up in the anti-Muslim anti-Arab pogrom launched by Ashcroft in the wake of 9/11 – on the basis of similarly weighty "evidence" – are being held even now?

"Using the excuse of "fighting terrorism," Ashcroft and his apologists have sought to shut down the Constitution, demolish the Bill of Rights, and set up what can only be described as a police state. Although they already had the legal tools – and more than enough clues – to track down Mohammed Atta and his friends and put them out of business, Ashcroft's gang seized the opportunity presented by the worst terrorist attack in American history to breach the walls of constitutional government and ram the "PATRIOT" Act through a disoriented and totally intimidated Congress."
