Andrew Sullivan sez:

TORTURE IN BURMA: The Burmese regime is one of the most odious and nutty on the planet. Read this account of torture in Burmese prisons. Now remember that, according to the Wall Street Journal, James Taranto, Mark Levin, Rich Lowry, John Yoo, and many others, nothing detailed in this account qualifies as torture at all.

Odious and nutty doesn't begin to describe Myanmar (formerly Burma). Or, when you get down to it, the doctrine of inherent authority that Mr. Yoo, et al. would wrap around the Presidency.
