Shame on your headline writer (Report Faults 2 Who Wrote Terror Memos, New York Times, February 20, 2010: A1, A9). They were Torture Memos not Terror Memos.
Shame on the Justice Department for arguing that the context of the times justified sloppy legal arguments. It is when we are under attack that we should hew most strongly to our ideals.
