God bless Doug "Taint of Occupation" Feith. Just out from the Washington Independent:

Feith also testified that he did not recall hearing objections to detainee treatment from within the Bush administration or the uniformed military — which contradicts the sworn testimony of Alberto Mora, the former Navy general counsel; and that of Rear Adm. Jane Dalton, a former legal aide to Myers, who testified that Haynes instructed her to ""stop the broader-based [military] services’ review" of the additional interrogation techniques.

Nadler said after the hearing that it surprised him that Feith was unaware of that dissent. "He may not have known about it, but all these service lawyers objected," Nadler said. Asked if he found Feith’s testimony enlightening or euphemistic, Nadler replied, "Both."
