     Republicans created the deficit

    Ex-CIA lawyer John Rizzo defends 'enhanced interrogation techniques'
    When the CIA's chief lawyer, John Rizzo, first came across the term "enhanced interrogation technique" shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, he was struck by the phrase's deceptive blandness. The words sounded mild, possibly even salutary. But...
  • Fixing the filibuster [Editorial]

    Fixing the filibuster  [Editorial]
    While there may be some bruised feelings and anger left behind in the aftermath, the so-called "nuclear option" unleashed Thursday by Senate Major Leader Harry Reid and the Democrats hardly seems worthy of its destructive billing. It means only that...
