The Daily Wrap

Today was a heavy day of torture talk at the Dish. I mulled over: Cheney's panicked rhetoric, his former speechwriter's Orwellian op-ed, the destruction of torture evidence, the destruction of an American citizen, the tyrannical threat Yoo posed to "real America," the similarities between Peggy Noonan and the Vatican, and the similarities between the Bush-Cheney program and, yes, the Nazis. Also, the NYT dropped the ball on the torture memos and Typepad gave us more technical difficulties.  A reader shot Gitmo through his window while Emily Dickinson shone a bit of light through the day's darkness.
