Watching KO tonight, and using his phrase as my post title..his biggest story for me was about the ABC newstory last night that there was actually a "Team Torture" which met in the White House and included all the central players discussing which torture methods to use on which terrorists. From the ABC report:
The advisers were members of the National Security Council's Principals Committee, a select group of senior officials who met frequently to advise President Bush on issues of national security policy.
At the time, the Principals Committee included Vice President Cheney, former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell, as well as CIA Director George Tenet and Attorney General John Ashcroft.
The ABC news story video below.
As Jonathan Turley said tonight on Countdown..its not a question of whether war crimes were committed..its a question of whether anything will be done about it.
