It is amusing to see the media’s hosannahs over the Bush administration’s agreement to accept the McCain amendment to purportedly prohibit U.S. government officials from torturing people.
This will be only one more provision in the statute book.
Unless someone can find a way to make the Bush administration to obey the law, then passing another law is simply another in a long series of charades. Torture is already illegal under U.S. law. Until the top Bush administration officials who helped craft and approve the torture policies are prosecuted, then any “reform” is another Washington con on the American people.
