House Votes to Subpoena Addington, Others to Follow

The House of Representatives voted to compel Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff to testify about the administrations torture policies, Addington had earlier agreed to appear before Congress if subpoenaed. He was one of several White House senior staff involved in reviewing (sometimes, in person) the interrogation techniques employed by US intelligence services and who then signed off on some of the harshest methods.

The AP also reports that John Yoo, author of legal memos that sanctioned torture, has reversed course and agreed last night to testify before the committee as well, along with Douglas Feith and former Attorney General John Ashcroft. Tenet has yet to agree to testify.
