Covert CIA Program Withstands New Furor
"'In the past, presidents set up buffers to distance themselves from covert action,' said A. John Radsan, assistant general counsel at the CIA from 2002 to 2004. 'But this president, who is breaking down the boundaries between covert action and conventional war, seems to relish the secret findings and the dirty details of operations.'"
Rush LimbOxyContin says those of us against torture or terrorizing our prisoners are pansified commies. Apparently, Bush agress:
"The CIA has stuck with its overall approaches, defending and in some cases refining them. The agency is working to establish procedures in the event a prisoner dies in custody. One proposal circulating among mid-level officers calls for rushing in a CIA pathologist to perform an autopsy and then quickly burning the body, according to two sources."
So there you have it. It's come down to this: the difference between Bush and a two-bit, tinhorn dictator is -- Bush wants to burn the evidence, and a despot just digs a mass grave.
