Slate’s Jacob Weisberg calls out the Bush administration for its reliance on propaganda. This is something I had intended to write about, but he says everything I wanted to say, so just read the article.

Update: Also in Slate, an article explaining how the government plans to execute prisoners based on confessions obtained through torture because “enemy combatants” because we believe that the Constitution is only for Americans. I guess the upside is that we can look forward to some propaganda that will convince us that this is a proper expression of American values.
