Well, big fracking Duh!

From the Washington Post:
The Bush administration issued a pair of secret memos to the CIA in 2003 and 2004 that explicitly endorsed the agency's use of interrogation techniques such as waterboarding against al-Qaeda suspects -- documents prompted by worries among intelligence officials about a possible backlash if details of the program became public.

Those of us who have been paying attention have known this for a long time, though we did not have concrete proof. The world has known it.

Meanwhile, Congress asks nicely for documents the White House refuses to give and then issues stern letters that accomplish sod-all.

May I remind the Speaker that so long as impeachment remains off the table so is democracy.

Spineless [multiple expletives ending in a plural obscenity].

And if I believed in a retributive deity and did not fear for my own karma I would be actively promoting a very nasty spot in hell for George Walker Bush and Richard Bruce Cheney. I would be ecstatic to settle for trial at the Hague for war crimes.

We cannot get them out of the White House soon enough.
