"In Hub visit, Gonzales defends dismissals"



U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales deflected questions about whether he should resign after the firing of eight federal prosecutors while contending that he was not fully involved with the discussions that led to their firing.

In recent days, Gonzales has been under pressure to resign, especially after the testimony of Kyle Sampson, the former chief of staff to Gonzales, who stated that the attorney general had participated in the discussions and the White House had a larger role in the firings than the Justice Department had contended.

Gonzales was in Boston to talk about the dangers posed to teenage girls by child pedophiles on the Internet.
