Change on "Torture".

Candidate Obama walloped the Bush Administration on "torture", redefined during the extended presidential campaign as any interrogation tactic involving physical coercion, like sleep deprivation. Team O pledged to end any such type of tactic when they assumed presidential power. Now Andrew McCarthy observes (in an interview on Bill Bennett's radio show), that President Obama may reserve the right to use interrogation tactics that include physical coercion, for so-called "ticking bomb" cases. It's refreshing to see some common sense finally take hold with the new powers, but my, how change looks like the same.
