Officially Documenting the Authorization of Torture

Die Hard Right Winger may not care about the world opinion, or the "quaint" Geneva Convention, or much else that doesn't support their Jack Bauer-esque agenda in fighting terror ('take one life to save thousands'), but like most regimes who do nasty things to people secretly, W's administration has left a convenient paper trail. Memos, authorizing the use of torture... they'll love those in The Hague. Didn't they learn any of the lessons from the Bosian/Serbian conflict? Cambodia? the Japanese during WWII?

Scott Horton writes this piece in Harpers this week.
