McCain is At It Again
How'd you like that little McCain-Feingold Election bill that became law? President Bush said he would veto that bill and he didn't. Now we have McCain adding an anti-torture amendment to the military spending bill. What could possibly be wrong with that? It's wording is vague, vague and vague again!!
The McCain Amendment -- SA 1977 -- Says The Following...
“No individual in the custody or under the physical control of the United States Government, regardless of nationality or physical location, shall be subject to cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment.”
So, you tell me what constitutes cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment? Do you think just maybe this is manna from heaven for the murderers of children like the Islamic terrorists in Iraq? Do you think Amnesty International looks at degrading treatment the same as you or I does? A GOP controlled Senate approved this amendment to be added to the spending bill. President Bush has said he'll veto this but remember it's attached to the military spending bill. This sounds like something from the Clinton era (remember Somalia?).

Take the time to inundate these legislators with your dismay with this amendment. Our Troops deserve better than this!
