Condi Has Another Torture Convulsion

Team Condi didn't like the way the NY Times reported on her testy little confrontation with that uppity Stanford co-ed:

As this statement from Ms. Rice made clear, the tactic used was legal not because the president authorized it; rather, the president sought and received legal opinion indicating that it was legal before he authorized it.

OK, so it's not that anything the president wants to do is legal, it's that anything the president has declared legal is legal. Got it.

The worst part is that all of this goes on in the "court of public opinion," while the Attorney General sits around doing nothing.

Isn't it nice that Obama is patient enough to just let these people hang themselves. Then he'll rope 'em in.

I hope.

I love title of the chap who wrote Condi's letter for her:

Colby J. Cooper
Chief of Staff
Office of Condoleezza Rice
Hoover Institution
Stanford University
Stanford, Calif., May 9, 2009

Are universities becoming State Departments? And who's paying for all this bureaucracy? The students at Stanford?
