Sure, it was shocking and appalling when we heard about Gov. Rod Blagojevich, but now an even higher ranking official  has been captured on tape making outrageous comments that should offend every American:

"I was aware of the program, certainly, and involved in helping get the process cleared, as the agency, in effect, came in and wanted to know what they could and couldn't do. And they talked to me, as well as others, to explain what they wanted to do. And I supported it."

(Questioner): In hindsight, do you think any of those tactics that were used against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and others went too far?

"I don't."  

It's bad enough when a political figure is so brazenly willing to violate the Constitution, let alone international law -- but to say so on tape, when he realizes that he's being closely watched by the American people? You almost have to wonder whether

is some kind of sociopath, or has some psychological desire to get caught.

I hope that when the Obama administration gets around to figuring out what they're going to do with that pit-bull Patrick Fitzgerald, they consider him for legal counsel to that National Truth Commission.
