  •  Like the surveillance, the torture allegations... (8+ / 0-)

    ...did not immediately flow under the Bush administration. Ditto the secret prisons, the exposé of which Dana Priest won a Pulitzer for writing four years after 9/11.

    Now I am not saying that the administration is engaging in wholesale or any torture at the moment. What I am saying is that citing unclassified executive orders as "truth" or evidence of anything other than being the public position of the administration is just a tad naive given the long history of the imperial presidency.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
