It’s like Santa Claus left a bunch of jumper cables and branding irons under the tree! Our Christian, moral, ethical leaders are gonna make torture legal!
National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley just finished a conference call with reporters to discuss the detainee treatment deal. Hadley said the president’s “sole standard” with respect to the Geneva Convention’s Common Article Three was “whether the CIA will be able to go forward with a program for questioning terrorists….The good news is that the program will go forward, and that the men and women who are asked to carry out that program will have clarity as to a legal standard, will have clear Congressional support, and will have legal protection.”
Congratulations, America! Your spineless Congress and abhorrant Administration have made you a torture state!
This country makes me sick.
