Reihan Salam talked a lot but said NOTHING.
He talked a mile a minute ,similar to people on cocaine or speed, and said nothing at all about the Republican party and how their "values" have drifted.
He is sounds like one of he creatures that hijacked the once great party and uses it for his own best interest.
Like the right wing Christians, they use the solidarity and refusal to admit their mistakes, Republicans to further their own agenda.

I recall stories about detainee family members being arrested or disappeared in order to pressure prisoners to talk and now, in the torture memos, we have tales of children placed in small boxes with insects. Remember too, Seymour Hersch said there was evidence of rape of women and children and I remember reading (from Amnesty International?) that there were detainee wives and children who are missing to this day.

If we could rationalize torturing "high-value" detainees, how can we rationalize torturing their wives or children?

There is so much more to know about what went on under the Bush regime.
