More torture documents

Filed under: I want my country back. — Lex @ 9:56 pm

The four Bush Administration memos justifying torture have been released in accordance with a court order. Names of specific CIA officials mentioned therein are redacted, although I don’t know why those names are even in there in the first place: These were legal opinions, not intelligence records. But whatevs.

Shorter Obama: The torturers were only following orders. Where have we heard that before?

UPDATE: I’d forgotten this USA Today/Gallup poll from February, which found that almost two-thirds of Americans want an investigation of war crimes — about 40 percent favoring a criminal investigation and about 25 percent favoring a noncriminal investigation (e.g., a truth-and-reconciliation commission or something similar). So this is not just a partisan issue.
