It’s amazing to watch the right-wing noise machine in action. The bin Laden talking point they’ve settled on is that he was caught because of intelligence obtained via torture. Therefore, we should torture more! Therefore Obama should apologize to the CIA (Bushie March Thiessen actually wrote that today)!
Next week David Gregory will be asking Democrats if they need to apologize for opposing waterboarding. Even the liberal Ruth Marcus and Jonathan Alter will agree that this may have been the kind of “ticking bomb” scenario where torture can be necessary.
There is absolutely no topic they can’t do this with. If conservative elites had decided to rally behind birtherism, David Gregory would have asked Democrats why Obama wouldn’t just release the damn thing.
