mccain opposes torture

I thought opposing torture was, for a democratic society, akin to liking babies or thinking that people should be free to read whatever they want. So is depressing to think that we even NEED legislation to make our military NOT engage in torture. But apart from any human rights concerns, McCain is correct that our treatment of prisoners in Iraq and Gitmo is hurting our image abroad.

And could encourage people to take up arms -- or car bombs -- against America.
