I have been hammered by two people of late saying that since Pelosi was briefed on torture, that somehow it changes the scenario. I am unsure why that is the case. Say Pelosi and others were briefed? Does that change the fundamental error and immorality of the Bush people's decision to torture? No. It simply adds more to the list of people that should be held accountable in some manner.
I am with Sullivan on this. We need some kind of independent investigation. Let's air it out, and find out who authorized the torture of others. If that net includes Nancy Pelosi, then so be it.
