Thought of the Day
Second, Obama has single-handedly eliminated virtually all mainstream debate over these War on Terror policies.... What was once viewed as the signature of Bush/Cheney radicalism is now official, bipartisan Washington consensus: the policies equally of both parties and all Serious people. Thanks to Barack Obama, this architecture is firmly embedded in place and invulnerable to meaningful political challenge.
Third, Obama's embrace of these policies has completely rehabilitated the reputations and standing of the Bush officials responsible for them.
Now that the pathetic AG Holder has finally dropped the investigations of the CIA "torturers" the circle, so it seems, is complete--the Enlightened One is now the Dark Master.
