Gonzales Is Sorry for Saying Performance Was the Problem

JURIST - Paper Chase: Gonzales apologizes to prosecutors for mishandling US Attorney firings, March 18, 2007:

US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales apologized in a conference call with federal prosecutors Friday for mishandling the dismissal of eight US Attorneys. Gonzales has been heavily criticized since he fired the attorneys in 2006 amid speculation the moves were politically motivated. During the phone call, Gonzales regretted suggesting the firings were reflective of the prosecutors' job performance but was clear in his refusal to apologize for the firings themselves.
