Andrew Sullivan, of whom I have been quite critical of late, is nonetheless pursuing the U.S. torture issue – multiple times daily – with diligence and courage. He focuses not just on the lies and current self-serving campaign of Cheney and former Bush administration officials, but also on the cowardice and incompetence of even the largest journalistc lights. Here he does his hero George Orwell proud, cutting the New York Times a new one for its professional irresponsibility – its refusal to call torture torture. A must read thumbnail of the hypocrisy surrounding this issue.

Thanks for the Sullivan link — I don’t often remember to check him out by he can be as interesting as he is infuriating, and this was a good one.
