Open Thread

Mark Fiore is one of the best mixed media cartoonists and certainly provides an astute and pointed critique on today's politics. His most recent work provided some great commentary on The Torture Team.

Then contrast that to the Bush administration's scrambling to get in front of the torture scandal. This USA Today article has a sidebar with all the links to the leaked set of torture memos the White House produced. Follow the thinking of the Administration as they pondered the limits of their ability to inflict severe pain and injury on those they captured and believed would only cough up the goods if they were severely punished.

I suspect the Bushies are sick and tired of the discussions of torture and wondering why if it is supposed to be so good at shaking out intelligence, why it feels so dumb.

Now its time for your two cents.
