In addition to the issue of Sunday news shows continuing to treat Saint McMaverick as if he were still relevant to anything, this shouldn’t go without emphasis:
Both Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) emphasized on Face the Nation this morning that the Attorney General’s new probe into the Central Intelligence Agency’s interrogation techniques is ill-timed and counter-productive.
Ye gods, is Feinstein atrocious. Perhaps Face the Nation could take the radical step of finding someone who doesn’t agree that torturers shouldn’t face legal consequences for violating the law.
And, in related news, if CIA agents are depressed because they might actually face consequences for illegal activity this is indeed a very good thing.
