Work in Progress

Andrew Sullivan has made good use of his soap box to tackle the Bush Administration pro-torture policies, even though, as Sullywatch points out, he hasn't yet grasped the inner need that torture fulfills for his former allies on the right. But he still exhibits occasional GWOT sloppiness, such as in this post which is actually making a good point:

[context] PADILLA CHARGED: There years after being detained. I like this detail:
>> An indictment is merely an accusation. All defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.<<
I have no brief for Padilla or any other al Qaeda mass-murderers. But he is an American citizen, presumed innocent, and it took the government three years even to charge him.

Take out the any other and, well, you get the point that people were trying to make when Sully was still on the other side of the fence. So get it in a better version from Seaxneat, using language that wouldn't be suitable for a blog getting ready to move to
