The American Civil Liberties Union and other organizations have called on President Obama to honor military personnel and civilians who opposed the use of torture in the war on terror. We would support such a gesture by the president, though we consider it unlikely given how often he has said that he wants to "look forward, not backward" regarding abuses committed during the George W. Bush administration. Fortunately, it doesn't take the president to shed light on the identities of government employees who balked at or questioned the Bush policies.

Or at least by prominent liberal Americans. It's becoming increasingly apparent that conservative speakers aren't welcome on college and university campuses. Last month, in the span of a few days, student protests disrupted a presentation by Karl Rove at the University of Massachusetts and one by Rand Paul at Howard University.

A report released Tuesday by the Justice Department has documented the Bush administration's unprecedented -- and illegal -- effort to politicize the ranks of the agency's prosecutors and civil service employees with conservatives and true believers in the religious right's agenda. Under then-Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales, a thirtysomething lawyer named Monica M. Goodling -- a graduate of a law school founded by Pat Robertson -- had virtual veto power over the appointment of U.S. attorneys, other prosecutors and immigration judges.

Given its subject matter, and its title, you'd expect Alex Gibney's "Taxi to the Dark Side" to be profoundly disturbing and shocking, and it is. But not always in the ways you'd expect.

Disneyland's misuse of equipment and its failure to train a key employee led to the Columbia sailing ship accident Christmas Eve that killed a man and seriously injured his wife and the employee, the state reported Thursday. After a three-month investigation, Cal/OSHA fined California's largest amusement park $12,500--the maximum allowed--for what it categorized as two serious violations that park officials "knew or should have known" carried the potential for "serious physical harm."

For four years, they waged what may have been the loneliest fight in the war on terrorism. Facing Bush administration hard-liners intent on finding novel ways to deal with enemy combatants, the armed services' own lawyers fought attempts to rewrite the rules of war.
