    Then it will be easier next time; easier both to commit the crime and easier for everyone else to look the other way in the name of "healing".  Precedent will be on the side of future torturers.

    I heard (sourced by Fox Radio, sorry) that next month Obama is releasing pictures courtesy of an ACLU FOI request.  Hope it's true.

    Obama is saying that he wants to look forward instead of backward, but he keeps providing fuel for the fire.  I think he wants Americans to force his hand and demand justice.  At least, I hope so.

    I mean it's like these guys take pride in ignorance! It's like they like being ignorant.

      Especially when you consider that the GOP has been fighting him all the way.  If he lets more information out, and gives time for the outrage to build, the GOP will either have to give up, or become history.

      I still don't understand why they don't cut the Bush administration loose, and just say "they were wrong".  They might lose some of their base, but not that much - especially when you consider that the authoritarian part of their base would rather die than vote anything other than Republican.
