Tue, 02/23/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Americans don't torture. No, they call it something else. And then they get away with it.

A deeply disappointing Department of Justice report reduces the war crimes of the Bush administration to an error of legal judgment. Sorry about the torture! Shouldn't have listened to those damn lawyers. With Joe out on vacation, Abe looks at a Bizarro World in which torturers and mass murderers enjoy lives of retired luxury in between speaking gigs and Sunday talkshow appearances. Oh wait -- it's our world.
