BUSH'S VETO: I like to think that I'm hard-nosed enough to recognize that sometimes you have to make some awful choices in life – and that war (even one as malleably defined as the War on Terror) increases the likelihood that such choices will be made. But I also believe that these awful choices should not be easy or consequence-free. In that light, Bush's veto this weekend of a bill outlawing waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation" techniques (to use the gummint Newspeak) has to be the one of the most squalid acts yet from a president who continues to dig ever deeper into the moral low ground . . .
