"The White House suggested two years ago that the Justice Department fire all 93 U.S. attorneys, according to e-mails and internal documents that the administration disclosed yesterday. Gonzales approved firing a smaller group of U.S. attorneys shortly after taking office in February 2005."
_why_? I can understand getting rid of a few that are being a PITA, corrupt administrations do that all the time, but why all 93? surely they weren't _all_ being diligent and effective?
does anyone know the background to that?
