Like a dam weakening, the little trickle of news about misdeeds at Guantanamo and in CIA torture labs is becoming a bigger trickle.
- ABC News, CIA Spy Calls Waterboarding Necessary But Torture (but see Kevin Drum)
- AWOL Military Justice: Morris D. Davis explains why he resigned as Chief Prosecutor at Guantanamo. (It's because they put a torture advocate above him in the chain of command). And although Congress would like him to testify, the Pentagon has refused to let him. (Will Congress use the power of the purse to force testimony? Unlikely)
- Marty Lederman explains why Congress's intelligence oversight desperately needs an overhaul
- Independent Online Edition, CIA photos 'show UK Guantanamo detainee was tortured'
Can we hope for a flood of revelations now?
Bonus: Emily Bazelon and Dahlia Lithwick, If the CIA hadn't destroyed those tapes, what would be different?
