Liars and bankers and spooks, oh my!

Some short takes on the morning buzz.

Shorter Santelli: I am not a paid shill for the far right smear machine. Honest.

Felix Salmon: "Rather, the scandal is that AIG could have earned billions of dollars by selling insurance against a meltdown, even as it was wholly incapable of paying out on those policies."

Under coverup: "The CIA got rid of 92 videotapes depicting the harsh interrogations and confinement of "high value" al-Qaeda suspects, government lawyers disclosed yesterday, as a long-running criminal probe of the tapes' destruction inched toward a conclusion that is not expected to result in charges against CIA operations employees, three sources said."

War powers: "The secret legal opinions issued by Bush administration lawyers after the Sept. 11 attacks included assertions that the president could use the nation’s military within the United States to combat terrorism suspects and to conduct raids without obtaining search warrants."

Sadly, I think the culprits will never be held accountable for their crimes.
