    Congress FINALLY starts doing its job and stepping up to the plate in its responsibilties.

    I'm proud of the 90 senators (including real conservatives like sam brownback and george allen) who stood up for clarity for our troops.

    and now the rebellion begins.....

    Great post. was about to make a thread myself from this article. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9601116/

    --EDIT-- Ya pretty good McCain rant, but not his finest..Hes probly had to remind our officials of these points, many, many times. Most of them are from the private sector or career politicians, they need his wisdom.

    yes, this step will raise your image again in the world.

    It is a wise step.
    do not see it as weakness but humanity...

    let the bad job others do. fly them terrorist suspects in arab countries to interrogate them by friendly-arab countries. they will get your information 99,9%...

    No they won't get our information. Innocent people will tell you ANYTHING to get out of the situation. So it is hard to understand who is really the terrorist.
    This is one of the reasons why stress positions, humiliation, and other forms of torture are idiotic. Also, it is immoral, even if you make someone else do it.

    LOL you do have a point. At the same time, it's well known that some, under torture will tell anything one wants to hear-which is not really what the US wants. We want info on real plans, so we are left with what can be done?

    As for this, while I think our military has acted honorably in the high 90% of the times, there are good arguments to be made for this:
