Christopher Matthews continues his focus on the Bush Administration renewal of a government sanction for torture. Tonight he had as guests congresspersons Jim Moran (my rep.) and Duncan Hunter (R -Ca).
Matthews summoned them to deal with a bi-partisan congressional report that establishes a case for prosecution of Rummy, Addington, Yoo, Gonzales et al.
Moran fumbled the defense of the committee report and a NY Times editorial on the subject.
Hunter made his case with the "classic" argument that "the end justifies the means." Click on the link above and you can hear his pitch. Hunter likes to call people "lefties."
Matthews contines to try to straddle the torture issue. Listen to him.
I am gradualy coming to the view that the guity should be punished, that the moral absolutes involved in this matter over ride the danger of political retribution in future American political life. pl
