Quote of the Day
Torture is never acceptable, not even in war.
I also heard some audio clips of Ashcroft's testimony yesterday in front of Congress... not exactly awe-inspiring, let me tell you. He was evasive (and was called on it), and at one point said he refused to reveal the contents of certain document because he believed the President had the right to receive and review intelligence information without worrying about oversight (or something to that effect). He was called on that, too - one of the Senators to whom he was testifying told him his opinion was not law, and that unless he was going to claim Executive Priveledge he could be found in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over said documents.
- quoted from a human rights treaty on KQED this morning.
Transcript forthcoming, hopefully. So far I haven't been able to find it online.
