[politics] Paging Lucretia Borgia...

iStockPhoto - Copyright: Mark Goldman Newsweek has an interesting article out about the people within the Department of Justice who resisted the Administration's embrace of torture and refutation of international law. It also provides some insight into the infighting that took place during Ashcroft's tenure - infighting that I suspect led to his resignation. It's a heartening read, if only because it reminds one that there really are people out there who care about the rule of law. Of course, it's a depressing read as well: if this debate had been more public, how much of our current mess could we have avoided?
