New AG

The Attorney General of the United States writes memos about how to weasel out of anti-torture provisions. I don't care if you're prepared to view torture as a necessary evil. It's what fascist dictatorships do. This is definitely a point against the whole beacon of democracy thing. Sick.

UPDATE: Well, besides the whole ambiguity about torture thing, Gonzales does seem to be a step up from Ashcroft on social issues, which will be nice.
