Ashcroft and the Association Method
Paul Corrigan

Bear Left has learned that the American Journal of Psychology, under pressure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bush administration, has decided not to publish a story based on records obtained of Attorney General John Ashcroft's psychological profile. The profile was assembled in December 2000, during the vetting process for prospective members of president-elect Bush's cabinet. Bear Left, after consultation with counsel, has decided that the public has a right to this information. Mr. Ashcroft's responses to the "Jung Word Association Formulary" follow in their original form.
