Very Telling

Over at Powerline, a good analysis of the administration's proposed release of interrogation details. I was struck by Mirengoff's update at the end:

UPDATE: One more point. In the Post's account those who argued against releasing details about interrogation techniques were no more high-minded than the other side. Their main argument seems to have been that releasing the information "could spark a national security debate with conservatives that could undermine Obama's broader agenda."
One can only speculate as to why the Dems would fear having that debate. Clearly, they must think that they would come out on the short end of it. If that's the case, aren't they tacitly admitting that conservatives are correct about national security?
