Late Late Sunday FDL: You Gonna Want What?

My favorite paragraph from Cheney Chapter Two (my emph):

That same day, Aug. 1, 2002, Yoo signed off on a second secret opinion, the contents of which have never been made public. According to a source with direct knowledge, that opinion approved as lawful a long list of specific interrogation techniques proposed by the CIA — including waterboarding, a form of near-drowning that the U.S. government classified as a war crime in 1947. The opinion drew the line against one request: threatening to bury a prisoner alive.

If you have a favorite paragraph to which emphasis should be added, please leave it in the comments….
