Contentions

Two Important Developments

First, Cliff May explains that the “180 waterboardings” is wrong. ” That very large number refers to “pours,” but the sessions were limited to 5 in thirty days and 2 in twenty-four hours. Otherwise the mainstream media is doing a bang-up job.

Second, “Never mind,” says the president’s press secretary about that whole truth commission thing. He didn’t mean it.  No, really the president doesn’t want truth commissions. He was just thinking out loud. This is complete and utter incoherence. Someone should explain that he is President of the United States and can’t afford to behave like a dreamy college student, musing about this and that. And in any event good luck telling Congress “never mind.”

We really are in deep trouble here.
