The latest indication of how Obama's vengeful decision to release the memos in the first place are going to cause him more trouble than they will cause Bush Administration officials came yesterday.

According to another NY Times piece, Obama's top intelligence official, Adm. Dennis C. Blair, wrote a memo which appeared to support the interrogation techniques.

"High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used" he wrote, "and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa'ida organization that was attacking this country."

The White House would do well to heed the caution in Romans and leave the vengeance to a higher power.
