The Arrogance of Power Among Federal Leaders

Come on Congress, insist that the president and the justice department release two documents on torture.

Democratic lawmakers believe that one 2005 opinion gave the justice department’s legal approval to the harshest agency techniques, including head-slapping, exposure to cold and simulated drowning.

Senator Patrick Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who is chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said the 2005 opinions had re-instated a secret regime by reinterpreting the law in secret. Mr. Leahy said his panel had sought information on the opinions on interrogation for two years without success.

It might be interesting to hear Senator McCain’s opinion on torture.

Donald McDonald, Hollister
