CIA director nominee Leon Panetta promises to stop the practice of "extraordinary rendition", while continuing the practice of "rendition".
When you're rotting in a Turkish prison, and you're beaten, starved and abused, is it any comfort that your rendition was plain old regular rendition, and not nasty evil Bush / Cheney extraordinary rendition?
Where is the ACLU? MoveOn? Andrew Sullivan?
Or, is torture only bad when you're honest about what you're doing and who's doing it for you?
