Working on my dissertation prospectus (which will be here eventually) has kept me from publishing on the blog as much as I would like.
In the meantime, go to hawgblawg and learn more about how, even as Bush says "We do not torture," Cheney confirms that the US does and will reserve the right to torture if it wants to. Can CIA interrogators torture and kill a suspect and get away with it? Find out in this New Yorker article.
Otherwise, just go listen to some Gnawa stories...
