Gen. Petreaus says closing Gitmo and ending torture helps U.S. security
Will Republicans heed his words or excommunicate him like they’re trying to do with Colin Powell?
Olbermann haters should skip to the 0:54 mark to hear Petreaus speak for himself.
Two of the most respected military minds say that torturing detainees and keeping Gitmo open hurts national security. Why doesn’t the right get it?

The Plot Thickens
Bob Woodward has been dragged into the Plamegate scandal after acknowledging to the Washington Post that a senior administration official had discussed Joe Wilson’s wife with him more than two years ago.
Woodward has been a critic of the investigation into the leak of Valerie Wilson’s name, yet he never disclsed his own involvement in the story. Woodward has apologized to the Post for withholding this information.
This stinks. Woodward should have kept his mouth shut and refrained from commenting on this case in light of these facts. He was already starting to come across as an apologist for the Bush administration, and this new disclosure further tarnishes his golden reputation.
