Admitting The Obvious

Sargent flags video of Fox News reporter Jonathan Hunt admitting what everyone should already know:
"Instead of this debate being about national security, what is and isn't torture, what the Bush administration should and shouldn't have allowed and whether anybody in that administration should now be prosecuted, the Republicans are now able to frame this debate as to whether Nancy Pelosi is fit to continue as Speaker. So they are not about to let their foot off the gas in any way, shape, or form."
Apparently Republicans didn't sign-off on the memo to 'look forward' on torture. Instead they filled a vacuum and threw blame on Pelosi - and it's probably the right's biggest political victory since the inauguration.
There's no better time to appoint a special prosecutor. We can't move on from torture this way.
