I guess it’s slightly reassuring that none of the Right Blogosphere has tried to defend the torture memos. But instead there’s been an eerie silence, with everyone using the Reagan worship-fest as an excuse not to write about it.
A notable exception is Andrew Sullivan, who isn’t especially worked up about the Constitutional issues — after all, the Tories were on the other side of the argument about the suspending power — but can see that prisoner abuse wasn’t just an aberration. Sullivan is also concerned about the Spec. Baker affair. Good for him.
Now that the torture memos officially on the radar screen of the right, continued silence from that quarter will be increasingly deafening.
