    The Bush administration's Justice Department's actions were inappropriately political, but not criminal, when it fired a U.S. attorney in 2006, prosecutors said Wednesday in closing a two-year investigation without filing charges.

    The decision closes the books on one of the lingering political disputes of the Bush administration, one that Democrats said was evidence of GOP politics run amok and that Republicans have always said was a manufactured controversy.

    AGREE!

    They had neither civil service nor union protection. If they were Libertarians or right wing Republicans they should be pleased that they were fired. Principle over pragmatics!
