Gonzales is shaping Iraq’s Justice System. Yeah, Alberto Gonzales.

Ok, this is like a bad movie. The embattled lying Attorney General flew into Baghdad because, get this — he’s helping with that country’s fledgling system of justice. Well, if Gonzales is involved, the Iraqis don’t stand a chance. But, let’s be real. Gonzales is in Iraq for p.r. reasons and, of course, he’s getting the perfunctory briefing from the Iraqi spin machine:

Gonzales got an update from Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, and also planned to meet with Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, and other U.S. and Iraqi officials, the statement said.

So, expect to hear from Gonzales that he’s seeing “progress” and “the surge is working.” It’s actually pathetic that the Bush administration thinks having Gonzales join their public relations offensive will help them with their Iraq spin. But, then again, the Bush team does know how to manipulate the traditional media.
