“We must all be prepared to torture.” — Charles Krauthammer, “The Truth About Torture,” The Weekly Standard, December 5, 2005

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald announced today that, swayed by the powerful arguments of an article in The Weekly Standard, he is prepared to torture Vice-President Cheney and political counselor Karl Rove for information that is “urgently needed” to save American lives. “I have determined that American lives can be saved by ending the ongoing stonewalling by these two suspects, who have clearly orchestrated a campaign which endangers U.S. intelligence agents’ lives. The Weekly Standard has opened my eyes to the fact that my being previously unprepared to torture is deeply immoral, given the American lives that I believe can be saved by the urgently needed information that Cheney and Rove possess.”
