They said this day… would never come. In about half an hour, Douglas Feith, the former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy — the Taint of Occupationhimself — will testify before Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY)’s House Judiciary subcommittee about his role in authorizing the Defense Dept’s regime of torture for captured enemy combatants. Last month, Nadler issued a subpoena for Feith’s testimonyafter the controversial ex-Pentagon official reneged on a promise to dish to the subcommittee.
Feith has made an interesting post-administration career out of simultaneously saying all of Bush and Rumsfeld’s decisions were wise and just and yet he bears no responsibility for any of them. We’ll see what he says today when asked about, say, Guantanamo Bay. Feith once told author Phillipe Sandsthat was “really a player” in creating the Guantanamo Bay detention and interrogation facility and characteristically hectored Sands that only “assholes” care about diminished American moral credibility on the world stage. (Sands, by the way, is scheduled to testify alongside Feith.) I truly cannot wait for this hearing.
