Ashcroft and others form a human wall so people could not view him as he was taken away, via Bloomberg:

Members of the audience, including former Attorney General John Ashcroft, formed a human wall so people could not view the attorney general as he was taken away. A member of the audience offered a prayer for Mukasey from the lectern and told everyone to go home.

Here are the remarks prepared for delivery by Attorney General Mukasey.

UPDATE: The attorney general is conscious, conversant and alert.
