Andrew Sullivan Takes Obama to Task

By Ben Cohen

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


that inflames, not the


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.

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
