    The torture memo doesn't exactly pale in comparison to anything, though I suppose you could counter by saying the justification of the "kill list" is worse. Once you get to that level of badness, I pretty much cease to make moral distinctions--it's like asking how far down the cliff you've fallen. If you're in freefall and the ground is below you, it doesn't much matter how much distance you've got left to fall.

    Unless of course you inhabit a Marvel comic book, in which case Ironman will swoop in in his amazing suit and catch you before you hit the ground. :-)
