The Harvard Law School graduate, onetime corporate lawyer and Texas judge also hasn't been able to land a job. He has delivered a few paid speeches, done some mediation work and plans to do some arbitration, but said law firms have been "skittish" about hiring him.They probably don't want to hire a lawyer who is going to be disbarred and possibly do time. If you think about it, that's actually sort of smart.
"What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service?" he said during an interview Tuesday, offering his most extensive comments since leaving government.
During a lunch meeting two blocks from the White House, where he served under his longtime friend, President George W. Bush, Mr. Gonzales said that "for some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror."
There you go. Alberto Gonzales is no different than one of those people who jumped out of the World Trade Center to avoid the flames. I don't know how anyone could argue with that.
Please keep the stories of his suffering coming. Thank you.
