What's bothering many, though, is that Roberts seems prepared to write the Bush team a series of blank checks to conduct the war on terror, even to the point of ignoring policy mistakes and possible violations of law.

That's not oversight -- it's looking the other way.

There sure is a lot of public infighting in the previously dissent-free Republican family over this scandal, and that infighting only seems to be getting on
