Frist Worried About Leaks, Not So Worried About Torture

Senate Majority Leader and master of the stock market Bill Frist, responded to recent reports of secret CIA prisons by vowing to kill the messenger:

Frist told reporters Thursday that while he believed illegal activity should not take place at detention centers, he believes the leak itself poses a greater threat to national security and is "not concerned about what goes on" behind the prison walls.
Because it's not a Senator's business to find out if the U.S. government is torturing and killing prisoners. (Also here and here and...)The Senate's job is to make sure that kind of activity gets covered up, and to punish anyone who doesn't go along with the cover-up.
