If you want it done right…


Think Progress has a nice catch from an NPR interview, in which Attorney General Mukasey acts as if the current debate about waterboarding is academic:

OK, let’s assume that the president wants, despite a finding of illegality under law, to have waterboarding done, who is it precisely that he’s going to get to do it? He would virtually have to do it himself.

Is this meant to put us at ease? We’re talking about a President who delighted in blowing up frogs as a kid. That’s not something you grow out of, it’s a gaping character defect. If the law ever actually required this President to roll up his sleeves and get in the game himself, I have little doubt he’d attack the task of torture with all the gusto he usually reserves for Texas brush.
