idiot with a mic

So he's up there, joking and glaring and posturing and being all He-man Presidential and someone asks him about the blatant, glaring, obvious obstruction of justice that is the destruction of the tapes that show our guys torturing some poor, evil motherfucker.

Not harshly interrogating. The full-on money shot. That thing we don't do. Our guys doing it. On tape.

Journalist asks him when he found out about it. He squints, shrugs, chuckles and says:

"Sounds pretty clear to me when I say I have- the first recollection is when Mike Hayden briefed me. That's pretty clear."

Yeah. Classic. It does sound pretty clear when you say you found out about it. That wasn't the question.

You fucking idiot.

The question was when did you find out about it?

And if you don't think we all know the answer to that one, which is as soon as the shit happened and you probably got a hard-on just hearing about it, then you must think we're idiots.

Some of us are paying attention. And more of us are paying attention every day.

It's really depressing knowing that your country is being run by war criminals who are going unpunished and are creating retroactive legislation to pardon their unpardonable offenses. It's even more depressing seeing how easily our Congress is rolling over and allowing it to happen.

That's an important point, for me. It's not a rogue administration. Everyone in that town knows what's happening and just about everyone is either encouraging it or at least allowing it to happen.
