--newly released memo on prisoner abuse, dated 1/21/04
Please note that the abuse of prisoners described in the newly released documents is the work of military interrogators, operating under the Pentagon's rules -- if this fish stinks from the head, the head is Rumsfeld, that "caring fellow."
So do you think now maybe Charlie Rangel can get more than four co-sponsors for his House bill calling for Rumsfeld's impeachment? Or more than 29 co-sponsors for his bill calling for Rummy's resignation (a step that majority support in the latest Gallup poll and the latest ABC/Washington Post poll)?
(I recommend the New York Times story on the memos if you're still a bit confused as to what's been revealed.)
