So here's the deal...

Congress... Senate ... what have you have had all the info all along.

What it meant going in.... what we did while we were there....many took trips there so that they could have a glory shot or two to send the folks back home and as much say, "Look Ma! I've got a pair of balls"!

... and "all" .... like vampires... look at at this pool of blood and wondered just how much they could drink before someone shoved then aside...... or if there wasn't anything for them at that time what concessions would be made for them in the future so that they could "wet their beak" as well.

While it is true that some do enter politics for the right reason, none stay there who haven't learned the finer points of lying, cheating and stealing.

The important thing is to have ethical people in place that HAVE seen the transcripts of those waterboarding episodes and see what was learned if anything. With those folks in place, decisions are more likely to be good.
When it comes to the current administration putting the prior admin on trial then we aren't talking ethics, we are talking unprecedented legal action and the evidence on both sides of the issue must be presented and publically so.

If a trial could be avoided by the release of those memos, then the good of the country would be sustained. Without their release, the doubt and distrust of the Dems motives will be what is written in history. Pelosi has now soiled herself.

By the way, unless you've forgotten the Dems have controlled Congress since 2006 and have yet to propose a law to forbid waterboarding and such. I believe that as long as they can milk political good from it, they will. But there will never be a trial because of the ambivalence and participation by Dems in the war effort.

Ethics, my ass. Partisan politics, as usual.
