But now I have a new gremlin to watch, someone who is as intent on undermining the law and Constitution as Ashcroft. I am referring to the man behind the criminal prosecution of terrorists, Michael Chertoff. Chertoff, former chief of the Justice Department's criminal division, and a scary looking guy if ever there was one, has been elevated to the level of Court of Appeals judge--the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, whose jurisdiction includes Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. What's so scary about Michael? Well, besides having no judicial experience and being a right-ring radical who does not believe in the Constitution and wants to rewrite federal law and rules of procedure on an ad hoc, case by case basis, as it suits him, nothing I guess.
Chertoff served as assistant attorney general for the criminal division at the Department of Justice from 2001 to 2003. There, he helped formulate the Justice Department's anti-terror response after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Some of the administration's most controversial tactics were developed and employed during this time period, including the Justice Department's resistance to making public the list of those who have been detained in connection with terrorism investigations.
* Before that, Chertoff worked at the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York, and in 1990, he was appointed U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey by Bush's father, then-President Bush.
