Set of one

Nina Totenberg made the point on NPR: Gonzales says he opposed adding the provision to the PATRIOT Act that would allow the president to appoint USAs without Congressional confirmation. He says he thought it was a "dumb idea." But the provision was inserted into the act anyway (in committee, at the 11th hour, without any debate or anyone knowing about it). Who overruled Gonzales?

He's attorney general. I can only think of one person who'd have the authority.
