NRO's Ed Whelan, Ctd.

More

Mr Whelan insists that this blog retract for the second time that he has written in defense of torture at National Review. I am happy to do so again and personally apologize again. He also insists that, pace the Senate Intelligence report, he attended no such meeting discussing interrogation techniques. I have no reason to disbelieve him, published his denial promptly, am happy to post such a categorical denial again and will await the Senate Intelligence Committee's retraction for the record. Others have contacted me with good faith concern that he has been unfairly associated with matters he had nothing to do with, that he does not support torture, and I take them and him at his word. It must be distressing to deal with this while attending a family funeral (something I was unaware of), and I am indeed sorry for causing Mr Whelan any distress at this time.
