Thanks. Hooked into two shad tonight. Came close to landing one, but the ride is all that really matters.

Man those fish are a blast on ultra-light freshwater gear.

It sounds like they were briefed but also told the practice was legal. Considering the situation I'd be surprised if anyone in a top secret briefing would call their briefer a liar to voice moral concerns unless they had good reason.

That being said, it's at best a foggy situation. I don't think it's a big deal for Pelosi unless they tried to prosecute someone and then the potential for hypocrisy would be a big issue.

What's the most interesting thing here is why Bush's lawyers didn't do any homework before they wrote their briefs claiming the President didn't have to worry about legal issues? It seems like they were more concerned with giving Bush what he wanted rather than practicing good law.

Considering the resume prospects of being a legal adviser for the President, it doesn't surprise me one bit.

THE PRESIDENT: I've been briefed, I'm constantly briefed by the Pentagon and through the National Security Office. I would -- I don't know all the details yet. I do know that we expect them to be treated humanely, just like we'll treat any prisoners of theirs that we capture humanely.
