Anniversary on Nov 15- a YEAR of Senator Leahy Requesting Documents on US Torture Policy

Frankly, as I've said before, this whole thing reminds me of a kid who is acting up and the parent says "Now, you just Stop doing that. I SAID, stop doing that. I'm going to count to three. 1, 2... I said, stop doing that. I''m warning you. Look, I'm tired of you doing that... Didn't you hear me?..... " instead of just up and making said kid stand in the corner or whatever.

If the Bush administration will not cooperate with Congress, then Congress needs to NOW hold them in contempt. We have THREE co-equal branches of government, and the President is not the King.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy's (D-VT) correspondence with the White House tends to be something of a one-way affair. But he, at least, has been a faithful pen pal.

Today, again, he wrote White House counsel Fred Fielding to request documents relating to the administration's torture and interrogation policies (see below). He hasn't received a reply to the one he wrote two weeks ago, but he's since learned that the administration is hiding a third Justice Department memo outlining interrogation policies, and now he wants that, in addition to the other two he doesn't have. And Fielding, don't try that old trick of handing over already public documents as if they were actually something new. Fool me once....
