    Not to know pacified either, but I get so tired of hearing that trope in its various forms: "Well, we all thought Saddam had WMD stockpiles..." "We all supported Bush on 9/12..." "Nobody knew Bush would govern this far to the right" etc.  

    Like hell.

    I was sitting at my computer when the WTC got hit.  I actually felt guilty about how quickly it occurred to me to worry about what a post-9/11 Bush Administration might do, thus empowered.

    None of this applies to pacified, either--but frequently the subtext of this reassuring "nobody could've known he'd be this bad" assertion is "You lone Cassandras were right back when I was still drinking the Kool-aid and calling you a traitor, and I'd prefer to forget that."  Especially common among Johnny-come-lately center-left pundits.  

    Let me state emphatically that we in the Bush administration do NOT condone torture. We sidle up to it, wink at it, and climb into bed with it.

      That first line should be "not to KNOCK pacified, either."

      Let me state emphatically that we in the Bush administration do NOT condone torture. We sidle up to it, wink at it, and climb into bed with it.
