Jon Stewart takes the administration to task for, well, there's no delicate way to put this, deciding the intimate details of how we would torture people. It pains me to type those words.
You gotta wonder, how could these administration officials be so confident that we don’t torture? Well, there’s only two options, really. One, the administration reminded all military and intelligence agencies of the moral commitment that civilized nations have to remain humane, even in times of peril. Or…. They sat in a room and meticulously crafted an interrogation regimen in the lawyer-created space between cruelty and torture. Hmmm….I wonder which way they went.
UPDATE: John Amato: It's good to see TDS pick up on our push with the ACLU to get this information out there. C&L will not let up on this issue and the blogoshere has responded in kind. Thanks. And Condi Rice should be forced to resign over this issue.
