As for his interaction with the president, Gonzales was full of vague qualifications:
"PETE WILLIAMS: You mentioned the conversations with the president. What role did they play in deciding which US Attorneys would be on the list?
"ATTORNEY GENERAL GONZALES: As far as I know, Pete, they did not play a role in adding names or taking off names."
More careful parsing from the Attorney General. What he's not saying is that Bush agreed that these are the people he wanted fired.
