Monday's edition of Bushed! on Countdown begins with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Chair Admiral Mike Mullen who said he wanted to give combat troops 1-2 years rest time in between deployments, but didn't see that happening in the next year or two. Next up was the eight figure no-bid contract awarded to former Attorney General John Ashcroft by scandal-ridden US Attorney Christopher Christie to monitor a settlement for the DoJ. And finally, one of the many Nexus of Politics & Terror scandals, this one involved Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell and Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who blatantly lied by saying they had lost intelligence because the telecom companies stopped cooperating with the government for fear of lawsuits -- only to announce later that day that all of those companies had, in fact, fallen into line and were all continuing to participate in the government's surveillance programs.
