A must-read investigative report in the latest Newsweek has a few key graphs buried in the middle of the larger story about the CIA "charter service" that continues to ferry off-the-books prisoners around the globe to countries....

....If I were in the CIA right now, I'd be worried too. No direct access to the President. A boss who seeks to "streamline" the intelligence process by removing from that stream opinions contrary to the President's stated wishes. Increasing press awareness of an off-books operation that directly resulted in the torture and death of detainees, and the secret detention of untold others, all in violation of international laws. And an administration cabinet that looks, for all intents and purposes, to have been hand-chosen to further solidify all those initiatives.

Where's the off button?
