Former Attorney General John Ashcroft

You may have seen the news stories headlined Ashcroft Willing to Be Water-boarded. Here's where that story started.

Several protesters confronted former Attorney General John Ashcroft at the University of Colorado at Boulder Tuesday night, November 27, 2007. This was one of our biggest video-flogs yet! Bringing video-flogging to a whole new height!

In the first video, Ashcroft gets video-flogged arriving and leaving the event, by vflog.com's own Kathleen Chippi, the woman who asked him during the Q&A part of the talk, "Would you submit yourself to water-boarding by some of us here?"

This second video is our very first guest v-flog, by the good folks at wearechangecolorado.org. Good work!!! It shows footage from inside the event, and the actual questions to Ashcroft and his meaningless responses. "Would you submit yourself to water-boarding by some of us here?" It also has Ashcroft telling Kathleen she needed to be on medication. What kind of medication are you on, John, that allows you to violate the Constitution and submit people to torture with such a clear conscience?
