war criminals and betrayal - u.s. style

Everybody's commenting on the Thursday New York Times article about torture and the de facto Bush Administration's secret approval of it. Andrew Sullivan is not pleased. He says he didn't believe it at first, and when the evidence came out he was stunned. Sullivan calls it a betrayal by the Bush Administration. He's right.

He also says, "We have war criminals in the White House. What are we going to do about it?"

The sad answer, apparently, is nothing. Now Congress is trying to get copies of the secret memos. Think a Republican Congress would have done that? Nope - DeLay and Hastert and Lott and company would have just been quiet because for them, Republican Party power is more important than the fact that the Bush Administration has befouled the name of America in the world, while trampling on our Constitution to boot.
