For Broder, it's not even about torture:
Missed this on first read. Here's the first sentence of his op-ed
If ever there were a time for President Obama to trust his instincts and stick to his guns, that time is now, when he is being pressured to change his mind about closing the books on the "torture" policies of the past.
It's not torture we engaged in, but what some reprobates say is "torture".
Perhaps from now on we can refer to Broder as a "nonpartisan" "journalist".
