August 8, 1974

Nixon resigned in disgrace. I was so very proud of my country.... but we (or at least I) did not know the half of it. he was not just a crook he was engaged in treason.

Yes--Torture is torture and by any other name......

The news media has been complicit in my countries criminal activities by refusing to call torture what it is--torture. Instead they used words like "enhanced interrogation" to somehow make the torture seem more palatable. Yesterday the New York Times finally agreed that it should use the proper word....emptywheel has more here.
