"Nothing"

Michelle Malkin, who it's safe to assume is unencumbered by previous military service, stumbles unwittingly upon something the military has long known: those who torture lose the moral high ground and forfeit their claim on righteous indignation when their own troops suffer the same fate. And when the unacceptable becomes tolerable and then mundane, outrage -- and both fittingly and ironically, Malkin herself -- becomes obsolete.

What moral high ground?

Our government does not even have a low moral ground. In fact they have no morals and neither does the GOP.

I am not saying the Democrats are saints, but if you compare the Clinton and Bush administrations they are not even on the same planet.

There were many things that I disagreed with during the Clinton admin. but in comparison there is really no contest.

Sad really that we have become a banana republic with nuclear weapons and no morals.

Last night I Googled for images from Abu Ghraib. I found a blood-soaked floor - the remnants of U.S. sanctioned torture - and then sent it to Ms. Malkin with "TIP" as the subject line.

I also said in the email that one of the worst things about torture is what it does to the humanity of the torturer - how do you think the soldier responsible is going to feel about himself?

My Arabic is rusty, but doesn't that manual say "enhanced interrogation" instead of "torture"?

Be sure to read the origin of the term "enhanced interrogation" over here at Andrew Sullivan's blog. The morally bankrupt path that this administration took is amazing and profoundly disturbing.

So, I don't really believe it may have success.
