Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) went on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show last night, to talk about the fallout from the release last week of the Bush administration's torture memos. And his appearance added to the growing sense that pressure is mounting to hold the memos' authors accountable.
Accountability is non-negotiable, it seems to me. Unless there are unacceptable costs imposed on those who order torture, it will happen again. That much is virtually certain.
