And No One Has Ever Been Held Accountable

Big surprise, this: the CIA did a document dump yesterday, proving that our worst fears about the agency back in the 1960s and 1970s were wholly and fully justified, that a "no-holds-barred culture" existed at the CIA for illegally spying on innocent Americans, all justified by a paranoia about the Soviet Union.

That was then. This is now. And should we believe that the "no-holds-barred culture" has gone away, that secret foreign prisons and torture and the interception of innocent Americans' phone & e-mail messages, and the Good Lord knows what else, hasn't accelerated under this current regime?
