Obama's Attorney General nominee, Eric Holder, has done the expected at his auto-da-fé in the Senate and declared waterboarding is torture.
And mean people suck.
You know, we're not talking about sellers of Girl Scout Cookies here. I'm really okay with them waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. I have no problem with Bush giving the order to waterboard KSM. Hell, if it were up to me, the interrogators could bleed KSM dry, give him some 9mm due process and toss his rotting carcass in a ditch someplace.
But the World Trade Center fell an awful long time ago, at least to some people. For the moment, Mr. Holder assures us that waterboarding is torture, and so it will remain. Until next time.
