Alberto Gonzales on ‘truth.’

Today, former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be speaking at Washington University. In advance, he answered a few questions from the school’s student paper:

gonzalesf.jpg SL: If you could redo your tenure as Attorney General, what would you have done differently?

AG: When asked how I believe history may judge my tenure at the Justice Department, I say that such matters are out of my control. Life is not about yesterday. With so much work to do for our country, I intend to look forward. It will take years for the entire story to be told. … I take comfort in the fact that I have always told the truth, worked hard as my father did, stayed true to my values by doing my best, and having stepped into the arena, I have served my country.
