The few, the proud... the chickenhawks

Cheney aide Addington says he didn't write memos

WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney's top adviser on Thursday refused to claim any responsibility for the adoption of harsh interrogation methods following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks during a combative exchange with congressional Democrats.

Hmmm... now that it looks like there might NOT be a "permanent Republican majority", seems W's minions want to flee.

If I were Addington, I'd avoid the EU for next few years. Some diligent French policeman might just take him into custody for War Crimes. (Note: The U.S. has asserted the more sweeping right to kidnap British citizens in the pursuit of its "War on Terror".)

There are very few almost universally applicable "guides to moral behavior".
Among them:
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."
[Matthew 7:12]

"If you'd be ashamed to have your Mom know what you're doing, don't do it."
(paraphrase of poorly remembered quotation)
I suppose I could add something along the lines of,
"If you'll want to deny it tomorrow, don't do it today."
It's really pretty simple.

See Addington.
See Addington run.
Run, Addington, run!

Stop the madness!
