Day of mourning for the victims. Following Gonzalez's testimony, we will have another day of mourning for the US Constitution.

It was the right thing to do. Ideally, a competant Justice Department would need to be doing something in such an incident, and not need the distraction of an investigation. Sadly this is not the case, but the delay was the civil thing to do.

And Gone-zales is not "off the hook", the inevitable is merely delayed.

I believe a "national day of mourning" is actually a presidential perogative, but in the finally analysis, who gives a shit. It was the proper thing for all them to do.

Why should the murders be a federal issue?

Presidential directives only apply to the Executive Branch.

Why are you asking me? I just made the observation that they are. The Feds always like to make themselves look good under these circumstances.
