In the world according to the new GOP, ancient Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich laments how going after the MFs that authorized torture is so the new McCarthyism.
::Cough, cough, sputter::
President Barack Obama started the new Red Scare by releasing Office of Legal Council memos that showed the piss poor justification of waterboarding and other forms of torture.
So, I guess Red is the new Red, too.
Gingrich is appalled that the likes of John Yoo, Jay Bybee, and Steven Bradbury are actually at risk for prosecution!!!!
This is Newt Gingrich on crack.
They were just doing what they were asked to do by a really, really scared…nigh unto terrorized president who was only protecting America and willing to sellout all moral ground and commit war crimes to do it!
