Some Legal Proceedings Are More Ongoing Than Others
"The fact of the matter is that this is a legal proceeding and an ongoing investigation involving this administration. It's being headed by a special prosecutor, Mr. Fitzgerald. We don't want to do anything that could jeopardize this ongoing investigation, legal proceeding. We want there to be due process. We want there to be a fair hearing. And that's why we made a policy not to comment on it while it continues." --Scott McClellan, April 2006
"They will get their day in court. One can't say that of the people that they killed." --George Bush, May 2006. "They" refers to the detainees at Guantanomo Bay, who are apparently, after more than four years of extra-judicial imprisonment, now the subjects of "ongoing legal proceedings."
