Damn.

"Mayor Daley on Thursday issued a sarcastic blanket apology for the alleged torture of suspects by former Chicago Police Lt. Jon Burge.

"'The best way is to say, 'Okay. I apologize to everybody [for] whatever happened to anybody in the city of Chicago.' So, I apologize to everybody. Whatever happened to them in the city of Chicago in the past, I apologize. I didn't do it, but somebody else did it. Your editorial was bad. I apologize.Your article about the mayor, I apologize. I need an apology from you because you wrote a bad editorial," Daley said, laughing.'"

Here are a couple previous posts on the question of Daley's culpability.
