"I was only exceeding orders"

I still need to do a big post about torture, but meanwhile, I kept thinking "All that stuff in the memos is torture, it really is, but what makes anyone think people limited themselves to what was in the orders?", and people got angry at Obama for letting torturers off the hook and other people said "Maybe Obama is playing a long game", and then I heard one more time that anyone who followed the orders wouldn't be prosecuted, and it occurred to me that if all the records come out, there just might be a lot of prosecutions.

Mind you, this wouldn't be good enough-- what the memos describe is torture-- but it would be something.
