Very Painful

It's all too much. Something good (in the partially offsetting sense) could yet come of this, but I don't think the political will exists to make it happen. It is now evident that the administration was on notice about the Iraqi prison abuses for months, and did nothing. It is certain that it at least negligently allowed it to happen in the first place, and appears likely it at least tacitly encouraged it. The reaction in Washington? Wait for the next in order to decide whether to bay-for-the-head-of/fire Rumsfeld.

And, on a somewhat related note: David Neiwert issues a Media Revolt Manifesto.
