So they did notice

Muscle Of Rove

That Mukasey slipped up and actually let some information out:
Conyers, Judiciary Members Demand Answers from Attorney General on 9/11 Surveillance
(Washington, DC)- Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and Subcommittee Chairmen Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Robert “Bobby” C. Scott (D-VA) sent a letter to United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey demanding answers about a recent public statement claiming there was a pre-9/11 call from a terrorist safe house in Afghanistan that was apparently not intercepted by federal authorities. The Members also followed up on previous requests for an October 2001 Office of Legal Counsel memo providing legal analysis about the President’s war powers. The letter notes: “The notion that the President can claim to operate under ’secret’ powers known only to the President and a select few subordinates is antithetical to the core principles of this democracy.”

Now let's see how fast Mukasey will not be able to recall what he meant by saying what he doesn't really remember saying just a few days ago...
