For the past couple days, I've had this sense that news of the tortures were a completely new kind of scandal for this administration. There's no greater evidence than the gathering threat to Don Rumsfeld job. NPR this morning said a chorus is getting stronger by the hour. Folks like Tom Friedman--supporters of the war--are calling for his head.

When things work back up the chain of command all the way to the Defense Secretary, things are indeed serious. If after 9/11 everything changed for America, then it was after the torture photos that everything changed for the Bush administration.
