Sullivan gets big love from The Daily Banter for his continued coverage of the U.S use of torture. Here he is lambasting Obama for not publishing the latest torture pictures and his rather weak explanation of his dubious decision:

It is important to remember that it is the

abuse

that inflames, not the

accounting

of the abuse. And for Obama


to act as an extension of the Bush era of secrecy is potentially more


damaging to the US and its interests and servicemembers. He risks


looking like Bush's continuation, not a clear caesura.
