You just can't make this stuff up

When Sen. Joe Biden asked Attorney General Alberto Gonzales whether al Qaeda members wouldn't just *assume* they were being monitored on the phone, leak or no leak, Gonzales responded:

"If they're not reminded about it all the time in newspapers and in stories, they sometimes forget."

Wily terrorist scum or Forrest Gump? You decide.

UPDATE: Another gem from Gonzales:
"President Washington, President Lincoln, President Wilson, President Roosevelt have all authorized electronic surveillance on a far broader scale."
UPDATE II: True, but sad, words from a site called "Right Wing Nut House":
"No GOP senator would ever do anything to harm Bush in the NSA hearings. Ever. The Dems are in the minority. Hence the outcome of these hearings is immaterial, and thus so are the hearings."
