Report: U.S. Attorney Kevin Ryan Deserved Firing

Yesterday, the Attorney General’s office released its damning report on how Alberto Gonzales handled the firing of nine U.S. attorneys and the subsequent public inquiry, and Attorney General Michael Mukasey called the process “haphazard, arbitrary, and unprofessional.” (Arbitrary? There was nothing arbitrary about targeting prosecutors for petty political reasons.) You can read the full report here (PDF), but the Chron has a nice piece about how our very own U.S. attorney, Kevin Ryan, was the lone prosecutor who truly deserved to be sacked.
