    Good morning.

    If I understand the president in his radio talk this morning, he’s saying the public option MUST be a part of any health insurance reform. Period. He’s now on the record and any vacilation will come back to haunt him and his program. Let’s see if he can convince the Congress — because without the public option his reforms are only moving the chairs around on the Titanic.

    Andy Borowitz reports on the health care debate:

    “Facing opposition to his health care reform proposals, President Barack Obama has decided to reach out to a key demographic: morons.”

    Here’s an excellent piece by an American with first hand experience with Britain’s NHS. It should be mandatory reading for all the nay-sayers.

    Justice Dept. Report Advises Pursuing C.I.A. Abuse Cases

    The Justice Department’s ethics office has recommended
    reversing the Bush administration and reopening nearly a
    dozen prisoner-abuse cases, potentially exposing Central
    Intelligence Agency employees and contractors to prosecution
    for brutal treatment of terrorism suspects, according to a
    person officially briefed on the matter.

    The recommendation centers mainly on allegations of detainee
    abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan. It now seems all but certain
    that the appointment of a prosecutor or other concrete steps
    will follow.
