Obama Turns to Shit Before Our Eyes

It's really quite simple: those who won't say we tortured are fascist assholes, like Marc Thiessen, or at the very least cowardly apologists for the same. And now the President seems to have decreed that the very word "torture" should be disappeared like one of Pinochet's enemies.

Obama is "looking forward" just like the Enron executives did, like the Citibank and AIG execs did, et cetera, et cetera, ad nauseam. Looking forward in these instances means: what makes things soft for me in the very near term, damn the long-term consequences.

A failure to investigate and punish these acts means that those responsible will very soon be returned to the highest offices in the land (just as Cheney and Rumsfeld slunk back from Watergate), whereupon they'll reinstitute and expand torture and other instruments of the police state, which will then be hallowed by long acceptance.
