Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Torture Report Coming Soon

My guess is that it will be sorely lacking in real revelations.  It will have been redacted beyond comprehension.  I do hope that they lay bare some of the worst abuses.  I realize that we will never see real justice for those who dragged the reputation of the United States through the sewer by torturing the guilty and not guilty alike.

But for the accuracy of history, this needs to be aired and clarified.

(And no, this won't cause anyone to hate us more than they already do.)
