Torture, waterboarding

In a recent New York Times article about efforts by the Senate Intelligence Committee to get its hands on (and perhaps release?) an internal report on torture that the CIA doesn't want to turn over, the author mentions in passing the pending nomination of Caroline D. Krass to be the top lawyer at the Agency.

He then notes that:

"Ms. Krass is a career government lawyer who works at the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, the arm of the department that advises the White House on the legality of domestic and foreign policies.

"The office was particularly controversial during the Bush administration, when lawyers there wrote lengthy memos approving C.I.A. interrogation methods like water boarding and sleep deprivation, as well as signing off on the expansion of surveillance by the National Security Agency."

That is very useful information, worthy of its own article.

Because the move of Krass from OLC to CIA is highly suspicious. After all, they're taking someone from the very heart of the cover-up over torture at the Agency and putting her in charge of... legal blocking of inquiries into CIA actions.
