Your TortureGate Update

It all comes down to the tapes. It always does.

First, we have reports that the White House discussed whether or not to destroy the torture tapes. Harriet Miers, John Bellinger, Alberto "Abu" Gonzales and David Addington engaged in extensive discussions over a long period as to whether or not to destroy the tapes.

Furthermore, some White House officials were lobbying hard for these tapes destruction.

No big surprise, but there is a surprise, and a good one, the C.I.A. has agreed to share relevant documents with congressional investigators, which means that at least part of the Bush Admin coverup is now over.
