Count me as semi-mystified. I’ve read Justin’s review of the torture deal at Muckraker. And now I’ve read the Post’s run-down too. And I still don’t think I understand precisely what the deal is and who gave what. The point about trials I think I understand. The prosecution must give summaries or redacted versions of classified evidence rather than the raw intel. On the torture front, it’s less clear to me.
Let’s make this the question of the evening. Do you understand the deal? What are your thoughts?
We’re discussing it here over at TPMCafe.
Late Update: I tend to follow Marty Lederman on this stuff. And he thinks the three amigos folded utterly.
