Former Justice Department Official Calls Gonzales' Actions 'Appalling'

Cox News:
In an interview, Metcalfe said, 'I think the way in which the firings themselves were handled was abominable, the way in which the ensuing controversy was handled was abysmal, and the way in which Gonzales has handled himself is absolutely appalling.'

'As a long-term Justice Department official, I am embarrassed and increasingly incensed that he is still in there,' he said.

The Justice Department, Metcalfe said, has been heavily damaged by 'sheer political expediency, avoidance of individual responsibility, defensive personal aggrandizement, irresponsible 'consensus' decision-making (and) disregard for long-standing practices and principles.'
