Doug Feith is like my personal hero. Wouldn’t you like to drift through life screwing up everything you touch and resenting everyone else for not possessing your personal shortcomings? Like, I want to know how after I write the world’s greatest book and defend the world’s greatest decisions, I can renege on a promise to testify to a House committee about my role in ordering and approving torture. Show me.

Feith thinks he’s just that gangster. But today Jerry Nadler was like, Son, I don’t think so. He just subpoenaed Feith!

“While most witnesses with relevant information appear before Congress voluntarily, in some cases, it is necessary to compel their testimony,” said Rep. Nadler. “It is simply not prudent to rely on the voluntary promise to appear of a witness who already has broken such an agreement. I hope that it will not become necessary to issue this subpoena, but Congress has the prerogative and duty to conduct meaningful oversight to ensure a robust system of checks and balances.”

Which of these men is more thugged-out?
