Thomas Friedman Cries And Justifies Torture

I know, I know, saying Tom Friedman is an asshole, is a little like saying the sun is hot. But, today Friedman had another "suck on this" moment, in which he shrugs his shoulders and says basically, "Hey, we are trying to build a democratic Iraq (yes he is back to justifying Bush's war), so of course we are going to have to torture people. It is the nature of modern war. Too bad. So sad. Suck on it." Today is a day when Americans and the rest of us are reminded once again of the culpability of the MSM in the lawlessness of government. When the press is acting as the fourth branch of government anything, including torture, is possible.
