Perp walks please

This is a follow up on previous posts about the torture issue. People who care about this country’s values will be anxiously awaiting the actions of Mr. Holder. The quote from Holder in this article makes me really hopeful that he will bring us our ‘day of reckoning’. It also has some great quotes from several generals who’ve come out against the torture hypocrisy. I’ll post this one from Admiral Hutson because it’s too perfect:

Fundamentally, those kinds of techniques are ineffective. If the goal is to gain actionable intelligence, and it is, and if that’s important, and it is, then we have to use the techniques that are most effective. Torture is the technique of choice of the lazy, stupid and pseudo-tough.

I also can’t wait to see the creatures that inhabit Office of Legal Counsel dragged out of their lair and shoved into a black and white…

    Welcome back, Madman. I dig the Harpers article and hope these folks keep up the pressure. Check out this post today from Glenn Greenwald documenting the recent public statements of Sens. Diane Feinstein and Ron Wyden, both of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Basically, he and Michael Scherer both detected some backsliding in their rhetoric about banning torture (i.e. forcing the CIA to comply with the Army Field Manual, which supposedly complies with Geneva Conventions).

    The good news is that these senators are being held to account, going so far as to send written statements to the authors clarifying their positions. This is the same process that effectively blocked the Brennan nomination to Director of National Intelligence.

    It’s time these fuckers realized, Obama awakened the dragon. That one douchenozzle was right: Obama is the Tiger Woods of politics. All the average citizens who have been so demoralized by Bush/Rove all these years have been re-energized and we’re paying attention like never before. Get ready for some scrutiny.

    FDR, speaking to party activists:

    I agree with you, I want to do it, now make me do it.

    speaking of visits, remember the house party we went to over Memorial Day, with the badminton? Perhaps you remember this lady with the tattoos and glitter?

    The hour-long episode aired over the weekend. I didn’t see but heard she really showed her ass. In her defense, she was deep in the heart of texas. Cliff came off well. S- was actually at the salon when they were filming, but didn’t make the final cut.
