My only question is...who cares?

"A new batch of 274 CIA documents connected with Bush era torture have just been made public as a result of a lawsuit brought by families of victims."

Since when does anybody let alone family, of terrorist combatants have standing in our courts?

A resounding "eff you!" should be the only reply.

This "lawsuit" is a joke, I do not recognize it's legality...it is entirely unconstitutional.   ::mooning::

Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
