For the record

I realize this post will contribute nothing new to the debate, just consider it a clearinghouse of my thoughts on the matter....

After a blizzard of stories that have turned the White House into a kind of "waterboardingworld" we now have learned that all along Miss Nancy and other Democrats knew all about (or at had been briefed on) the enhanced interrogations back in 2002:
"The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough," said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.
This should come as no surprise. Bush had told the press repeatedly that Congress was briefed at the time and most of those involved knew Clinton was using rendition during the 90s.

But Instapundit went further, pulling up this golden oldie set to the tune of Traffic's "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys"...

And let's not forget this gem from the vault, or this one.

Funny, after the attack certain politicians had no fear of entering churches where prayers were being said for America, or even singling on the steps of the Capitol. Or even cheerleading the very same CIA debriefers they are now demonizing.

Trying to paint one set of politicians as morally superior to another is always risky and is not the point of this post. This is not to say the Iraq war wasn't mishandled or that torture is justified. The point is a simple reminder of the level to which some will stoop to remain or regain power. Those same individuals very much want to remain or regain power next year.
