The Senate passed Bush’s torture bill. The House of Representatives will probably follow suit.

I went to a retirement ceremony today at work for a colonel. They played the National Anthem, prayed, thanked the guy for helping create the most feared military on the face of the planet today, and gave his wife an award for staying with him throughout the whole thing.

If he’d been captured by the Iraqis, would anybody want him treated the way our “detainees” are going to be treated?

If the world’s “most feared military” can’t play fair–why should anybody else?
