Incredibly, The US Senate confirmed the nomination of Michael B. Mukasey for Attorney General late last night!
This came after Mukasey refused to denounce the tortures practiced by the US government against prisoners held illegally by the military and the CIA.
It looks like we have new top Gestapo cop well-suited to follow in the footsteps of his criminal predecessors Alberto Gonzales and John Ashcroft.
Of course, this has been going on secretly for a long time. See this 2003 Department of “Defense” report on 2003 report on detainee interrogations.
