Something Someone Else Said

"We have a situation where a president authorized illegal torture, disappeared many terror suspects, subverted the rule of law, suspended the First and Fourth Amendments secretly, wiretapped citizens secretly - and never copped to any of it. The idea that we should simply forget about this and move on without a serious accounting of what actually happened is as bizarre as it is disturbing. The truth, by the way, may well impugn members of Congress, including some leading Democrats, as well as other world leaders, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown among them. Why would we not want to know what was done in our name?" -Andrew Sullivan, The Daily Dish, on Senator Patrick Leahy's efforts to organize a truth commission to investigate the alleged crimes and abuses of power committed by the Bush administration.

And on a ridiculous side note: because I love tits I can't link to the writings of homosexual intellectuals? What year is this again? Neocon dinosaur...
