In case you have not seen this, you win want to. The Secretary was asked about it this morning on Meet the
Press but did not recall the specific Gonzales memo on which he was reported to have "hit the roof." Newsweek
reports that they have obtained a series of OLC memos from the fall of 2001 forward, quotes a State Department
lawyer as saying "we were horrified" and quotes from a Taft-Yoo rebuttal memo in January 2002.
