A Conservative Judgment on Bush

I haven't always agreed with Andrew Sullivan in the past. He said some pretty stupid things after 9/11 (as I guess a lot of us did.) But he has been all over the torture scandal that has implicated Bush, Gonzales, and Rumsfeld. His quote on all this today is outstanding:

If criminal charges be brought against Rumsfeld, so be it. And ultimately, this goes to the Oval Office. Bush has brought the deepest dishonor imaginable on his office. The last president was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice in a civil lawsuit. Our current one has legalized torture in the U.S. military, and is thereby responsible for the deaths from torture of scores and the staining of the military's honor for ever. Which crime is worse?

I couldn't have said it better.
