So, instead of a ticking time bomb scenario with lives on the line, we have conference rooms full of bored bureaucrats and political operatives ordering up torture because they've got nothing else to do.

And yet your faith in government remains pure and untrammeled.


What the hell was I thinking?

Among the ironies of the right's faith in torture is that the right is not supposed to trust government. Yet during the Bush Administration many on the right enthusiastically defended an Executive Branch that imagined it had the power to abduct and torture even American citizens if that's what the President wanted.

Indeed. Many "on the right" as you say, who in finding themselves in possession of all three branches positively swooned over this new love.
