Note: For those using the “View in iTunes” link, it often takes iTunes quite a few hours to show a new episode after the episode is posted here. So if you are looking for the podcast very soon after I post this, use one of the other methods to find the new episode. For those who are subscribed, your Podcast software should pick up the new episode next time it checks for new episodes on its own, or you can always force a refresh. For those using the XML feed directly, the new episode is now there.

    It’s Conficker. No el. I won’t nitpick some of the details.

    I’m not entirely clear on how charging people with crimes who wrote legal memos has anything to do with returning to the rule of law. (I gather you were referring to the Spanish investigations; I know of no active US criminal investigations, as it’s not even clear what those charges would be.) Under the rule of law, surely it should be those who ordered and those who executed acts of torture, not those who wrote opinions on the legality of torture. Lawyers write opinions. Sometimes those opinions are right. Sometimes they’re wrong. Often times, right and wrong changes. However, unless those memos ordered torture, going after the lawyers for anything other than professional misconduct strikes me as nothing more than continued pettiness.

    Now, there must be something to say for the sound effects. I just don’t know what those words are.

    As has been my habit of late, rather than responding here, Ivan and I will respond in the next podcast we record. Which will not be the next one released, which has already been recorded, but the next one after that.
