"McCain Hands Obama a Weapon

After discussing the campaign finance cudgel McCain could use against Obama, I figure itís worth mentioning the brickbat Obama could now use against McCain: torture.

McCain has been a regular critic of harsh interrogation techniques, insisting in a presidential debate on Nov. 28 that the Army Field Manual, which prohibits the use of force, should be the standard. But yesterday he voted against the Intelligence Authorization Bill that, among other things, would ban torture in CIA interrogations."

this quote from 'slate' doesn't mean quite what it says, because bush had promised to veto the legislation. but it does underline that mccain regards his announced opposition to torture as a matter of political convenience.

i suggest to ozzians, once again, that hanging around these yankee vultures is bad for our reputation, and will have further substantive repercussions.

Our politicians act like these crimes don't exist. I think they should constantly be making it very clear that they find it hypocritical and flat out sickening and unless the usa is pressured then there will be consequences for the alliance. Really makes me want to throw up.

Steel while I agree with some of you post may I ask what you think about the terrorists be headings?
I have a view about your one sided interpretations of world events.
America should not torture ever but at least they openly debate it not so in the middle east.
McCain DEMOS lived in a cadge in north Vietnam for a few years and was tortured a great deal he should have known better but he understands torture better than you and I.

Juan McCain is a loose cannon, unfortunately, he is all we have. As bad as he is, he is much better then the extreme leftist choices we have in the Democrat party. I have heard all the arguments about sitting out the election, but they don't make sense, considering the alternatives, Bill Clintons wife and the moslem, Barack Hussien Obama.
Yes, he is a moslem. Under moslem law, the relgion of peace, you cannot change your religion, that makes you an apostate and subject to beheading. Kids are exempt, until they are old enough to make a proper decision, and then they may keep their heads, or continue with the apostate decision and lose their heads. Borat Hussain Obama, to the best of my knowledge, has never denounced islam. He is a friend of of the moslem terrorist who lost the election in Kenya, a 90% non moslem country, and the minority moslem population is on a killing rampage. Things you don't generally see in the western media, and when you do, there is no mention of the moslem rampage, it is called tribal conflict. Where in the world is there war where moslems aren't involved, I can't think of any place.

Belly, measuring yourself against brutal criminals is hardly a means of determining your moral virtue, if you are willing to engage in their techniques. That would make you into a brutal criminal yourself
