In light of both the wild-eyed accusations by the fringe, (of Bush
administration committing crimes amounting to "treason,") and the more
mainstream Fitzgerald-led Grand Jury investigation, perhaps now is the time
to call for a temporary halt on bans of torture of criminal suspects, with a
special and iron-clad caveat that torture only be allowed under the aegis of
investigations involving Executive-branch malfeasance.
Perhaps then, before the opportunities presented by the ill-conceived
Patriot Act expire as they ought, Karl Rove, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al, will
be more forthcoming with evidence which is absolutely crucial to these
ongoing investigations, if more stringent interrogations of them are
I am curious what fellow ATS members think of this concept.
