It's good news for the Constitution and the rule of law that President Obama ordered the release of the Bush Administration memos that justified the use of torture and that he has not ruled out prosecuting officials who devised the policies that allowed torture to happen. Former President George W. Bush and other members of his Administration came up with the legal justifications after the Sept.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 13, 2009 -- Documents from the Bush White House and the Republican National Committee newly released by the House Judiciary Committee show that while the Justice Department under President Bush was aggressively prosecuting local Democratic officeholders around the nation, the White House Political Affairs Office was simultaneously circulating weekly broadsides about the legal actions on a flier entitled "Democrat Ethics Breakdown ."
House Speaker John Boehner, leaving a meeting with Dick Cheney, has ordered members to show up a day early to cast a vote on approving military action against ISIS.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney's September 10, 2014 speech at the American Enterprise Institute was particularly bad from both a timing and protocol perspective given that the President was going to lay out his strategy to confront ISIS that same day.
