Gonzales Speaks to Louisville Police

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says he's got it easy, at least compared to those serving in Iraq.

Gonzales spoke at the Fraternal Order of Police Conference in Louisville on Aug. 14 and pointed out while he faces criticism, they face bullets.

Gonzalez is just back from a three-day visit to the war-torn country.

He told the crowd the challenges he faces are nothing compared to what his nephew has faced each day during his last five-months in Iraq.

"You see, I have a nephew that's stationed in Iraq. I visited with him on Saturday, and we talked about his challenges. Yes, I face criticism, but he faces bullets. I sleep comfortable in my own bed next to my wife, my nephew sleeps with his buddies in a converted meat-packing building," Gonzales explained.

Gonzales has faced calls for his resignation from Democrats and Republicans.

He said that as much heat as he takes, he's never had to walk into an actual fire-fight like the officers he was speaking to at the event.
