There's no smoking gun, but former New York Timesman Don Van Natta Jr.'s piece about the firing of Joe Paterno and PSU president Graham Spanier and the role that Gov.

On the other hand, Corbett comes off as looking way too eager to make this happen.

Um, this guy -- who was a ranking official in the State Department during the Bush years:

A top adviser to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned the Bush administration that its use of “cruel, inhuman or degrading” interrogation techniques like waterboarding were “a felony war crime.”
