Torture and Tortured Reasoning I do not see how, given the strong case brought in Nuremberg on these grounds that "mere orders or permissions are not exculpatory," that President Obama can justify relieving the CIA of its crimes. It will be seen by many world-wide an act of political cowardice! But there is, perhaps, a supervening context.

Obama has 30 days at best to take a different path with different people. If he doesn't the Democrats are going to be trounced in November. But, there is good news: the Progressive Movement now knows that it must be free of the corruption and lethargy in the Democratic Party.

"Conventional Wisdom" There is no question that the news media in this country have gone astray. Some of the problem is that we are living in one epoch after another of rapid, disorienting change, and we need help figuring out how to land on our feet, but we are too gullible and insufficiently vigilant. Corporate media want to turn the coming election to their own purposes and even the "trusted voices" are looking suspect.
