HMM: Attorney: Justice Memos Prove U.S. Did Not Torture.

UPDATE: They’re debating this over at the NYT Room For Debate blog.

Here’s an excerpt: “Most prominent among those briefed on waterboarding was Nancy Pelosi. According to the Post’s interviews, members of the Congressional oversight committees understood that they had to weigh the limits of inhumane treatment of people known to have Al Qaeda connections against the threat of new attacks. They believed that these techniques struck the right balance in the circumstances. Yet I haven’t heard of any serious call for prosecuting Speaker Pelosi or any of her colleagues for complicity in torture.”

I haven’t heard much from Jane Hamsher’s pitchfork minions either.
