Secretary Rice: Anthrax Attacks Justify Torture

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, speaking with Google employees in Mountain View, Calif., in May, said, “after Sept. 11, whatever was legal in the face of not just the attacks of Sept. 11, but the anthrax attacks that happened, we were in an environment in which saving America from the next attack was paramount.” She added, “there has been a long evolution in American policy about detainees and about interrogations...we now have in place a law that was not there in 2002 and 2003.”

I... If, as Senator Leahy believes, the US Government itself was behind the Anthrax attacks... There's no comment, I am just still occasionally shocked by the shamelessness of this administration. Really, though, I guess their choices are to ride it out or go to their secret bunker and turn their lugers on themselves.

Or precipitate another crisis to justify there unjustifiable actions. I know I'm scared. Still expecting an October surprise.
