It is the latest twist in an ongoing Republican battle with President Obama, who released once-secret Justice Department memos that outlined the interrogation techniques, but not what they produced.
In fact, according to the just-published budget report by the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Obama administration deliberately redacted, or blacked out, on the documents what the CIA learned from questioning Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the September 11 mastermind, and from other al Qaeda henchmen.
That, to Sen. Christopher "Kit" Bond of Missouri, top Republican on the intelligence committee, is unfair. He won passage 10-5 in committee of bill language that would order the CIA to produce an unclassified version of four secret reports that detail what the U.S. learned by using water-boarding and other harsh methods in the years after 9-11.

And it could force 88 million Americans off of the private health insurance they now have.
Just as small men can be great, the important can be small. Barack Obama, who strode the political world last year as a new Colossus, is shrinking before our eyes. His proclamation that the Cambridge, Mass., police “acted stupidly" in arresting his personal friend, Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., was one of those “teachable moments" the president is so fond of creating.
