VP Cheney's Chief of Staff David Addington and former Justice Department official (and primary "torture memo" author) John Yoo went up to the Hill yesterday for a little grilling by a House Committee. Press reports focus on Addington's surly demeanor and his uncooperative performance. Bravo! Executive Branch witnesses need to continue to remind the legislative branch of its co-equal nature. Kills me that all the emails of all the people who work for the Executive Office of the President must be archived and retained, but NO SUCH PROVISION is in place for Members of Congress or their staffs. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I'd like to hang out with David Addington....but his performance yesterday was spot on.
