When the UK released the Lockerbie Bomber (killer of 270 innocent people, including 179 Americans) to a hero's welcome, president Obama decided to make a strong statement about terrorism. Unfortunately, his statement was that CIA agents may be put on trial for trying to gather life-saving information, and that the Whitehouse will now supervise all interrogations of terror suspects to make sure they don't get cold, hungry, scared...or cooperative.
So basically, it's been a terrific week for terrorism. Oops, we mean "overseas contingencies!"
Important Update: Please read what Dick Cheney says about the decision to prosecute CIA officials, despite newly released proof that the "enhanced interrogation methods" saved American lives and severely damaged Al Qaeda.
