Aschroft: judges shouldn't uphold the Constitution

Aschroft: judges shouldn't uphold the Constitution.
John Ashcroft, the former Attorney General of the United States of
America, has given a public, blistering critique of judges who strike
down the Bush administration's policies as unconstitutional.

“The danger I see here is that intrusive judicial
oversight and second-guessing of presidential determinations in these
critical areas can put at risk the very security of our nation in a
time of war,” Ashcroft said…

“Courts are not equipped to execute the law. They are not accountable to the people,” Ashcroft said.
