Al Gore isn't finished. From a press release we just received:

"In a major Washington policy address this Thursday, former Vice President Al Gore will accuse the Bush Administration of intentionally misleading the American people by continuing to falsely claim a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda."

"He will charge that Bush and Cheney have 'institutionalized dishonesty as an essential element of their policy process.' Gore will also urge the broadcast media to further resist Administration efforts to manipulate and intimidate them, to fearlessly report the fact that there is no Al Qaeda/Saddam collaborative relationship, as the 9/11 Commission staff report has concluded."

"Gore will also discuss the implications of the Administrations claim to be above the law in ordering the torture of suspects and their claim that the Commander in Chiefs power trumps all other laws. He will call for the Administration to reveal all orders given the military on the treatment of prisoners."

"The speech is sponsored by the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS). ACS is one of the nations leading progressive legal organizations."
