Those inclined to agree with the opinion of Bush's speechwriter that Obama is "the most dangerous" man to occupy the Oval Office might find this article of interest. The executive order eliminating torture was, it turns out, unsurprisingly, the result of careful deliberation and extensive consultation with the CIA. Not a problem, they said.
So, it would seem we have a president who is making decisions based on careful analysis and consultation with people who know things. As opposed to those who, for example, like the idea of torture because it makes them feel like tough guys with hards on. Y'know: Cheney, Wolfie, Rummy, O'Reilly. That sort of thing.
If the guys who actually do the interrogations aren't disturbed by being unable to torture, neither am I.
