Rahm defends the WH decision to release the torture memos on ABC’s This Week, claiming the info is already out there:

One of the reasons the president was willing to let this information out [was that] the information was out,” he said. “So if they’re saying you basically have exposed something, it’s been written. Go get the New York Review of Books. It is there. So the notion that somehow we’re exposing something — it’s already been out.

From Politico: “Emanuel was referring to the story written by Mark Danner, based on a ‘confidential’ Red Cross document he came into possession of which enumerated the interrogations of 14 detainees.”

Here’s the article Rahm referred to from the New York Review of Books
