Abu Ghraib

The drip drip continues. Surely no one at the White House actually thinks this scandal is just going to peter out, do they (not when the Wall Street Journal is giving it new life...)?

They need to get out in front of this scandal rather than have more revelations hit the airwaves in late September/October.

It is a Washington axiom that it is always the cover up that gets you (spare me E-mails about myriad investigations underway and how transparently Abu Ghraib is being handled).

Neither morally (nor, if you care more, tactically) have the Bushies gotten in front of this scandal effectively. They need to, and soon.
