You have to feel sorry for George Bush. The Democrats in the Senate keep coming up with petty things to try to keep the president from doing his job.
Senate sneaks just sent a bill to the White House, which would require that the CIA follow the US Army Field Manual in its techniques of interrogation. The field manual forbids water boarding.
George Bush, naturally, is going to veto the bill. “What’s the point of being president,” he asked, ‘if you can’t authorize a little water boarding now and then?”
Senator John McCain, a former POW, voted against the bill, insisting that the vote was consistent with his position against torture. He went on to explain: “We always supported allowing the CIA to use extra measures. I believe waterboarding is illegal and should be banned.”
Huh? Where’s the straight talk express on this issue, John?
