I can't believe we are even having this discussion

House Passes Restrictions on Interrogation Methods
Defying a veto threat from President Bush, the House of Representatives voted Thursday to prohibit waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods used by the Central Intelligence Agency against high-level prisoners from Al Qaeda.

Point one: torture is already illegal, and waterboarding is, by definition, torture.

Point two: see point one.

Just about the entire Repblican caucus voted for torture.

I'd be curious to see what Sen. McCain has to say on that score. More than likely, there will be precious little coverage of this on the news coverage (if you can call it that) by the MSM... afterall, Heath Ledger is dead, didn't you hear! This is BREAKING NEWS! This is clearly IMPORTANT.
