CIA: Waterboarding Possibly Illegal

CIA Director Michael Hayden told lawmakers Thursday that waterboarding is a useful technique but might not be “lawful under current statute.” Hayden said his agency used waterboarding because of “misshaped and misformed” direction from Washington.

Clinton and Obama Share a Laugh

The Senate turned into a bit of a schoolyard Wednesday as the Democratic presidential rivals gathered with their cliques, assembling to vote on the economic stimulus package. It was all in good spirits, though, as Sens. Obama, Kennedy, Feinstein, Clinton and others joked. As Sen. Claire McCaskill explained: “I think they were having fun at Ted’s expense. ... But everyone is good-natured about it.”

Romney Faces Facts

Mitt Romney dropped out of the presidential campaign Thursday, but you’ll probably still have him to kick around, as he hinted that he might run again. He said he made the difficult decision because he didn’t want to help the Democrats—and, by some illogical extension, the terrorists—win: “And, frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”

Gore Isn’t Telling

Al Gore voted in Tennessee’s primary, but he’s not saying for whom. According to a spokeswoman, “As private citizens, neither of the Gores are releasing who they voted for.” There’s been much speculation over whether Bill Clinton’s former vice president, in light of his known animus toward Hillary, would endorse a candidate, but we suspect that Gore enjoys life above the fray a bit too much to bother.

How Is Obama the Underdog?

Somehow Barack Obama has managed a political hat trick. He appears to have won the most delegates on Super Tuesday, he certainly has the most money (Clinton loaned herself $5 million while Obama is on track to set more records), and yet somehow he’s also winning the expectations game.

Conservatives Fear McCain Will Veer Left

Rush Limbaugh’s said it, and now Charles Hurt from Rupert Murdoch’s Big Apple tabloid, the New York Post, is joining in the chorus of conservatives who worry that Sen. John McCain would betray the GOP’s core right-wing base if he inches any closer to the White House.

Obama Ahead in Delegate Count?

Super Tuesday’s aftermath is certainly providing a good crash course in American electoral politics as the results are sorted out. The latest surprising twist involves Barack Obama’s camp claiming a slight lead over Hillary Clinton in the total number of delegates racked up. Officially, the final count has not been determined yet.

Bush Approved CIA Waterboarding Disclosure

The confirmation, delivered by CIA Director Michael Hayden on Tuesday, that the U.S. intelligence agency did indeed use the now-infamous severe interrogation technique of waterboarding on three major 9/11 suspects was given the green light by President Bush in a rare show of (relative) transparency.

Once Again, It’s Close

As the dust settles from Tuesday’s “national primary,” we know two things: John McCain is the Republican front-runner and the Democrats still have a race on their hands. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama swapped states all night. Obama won more states overall, but Hillary took home the big prizes of California and New York. Updated
