Supporters of Torture. Corrected.

The house has acted to support the budget bill with the McCain amendments to restrict the use of torture. Here's a list of pro-torture douche bags.

It was the nays that supported torture. In the previous post I accidentally lumped Rep. Weldon from Pa. into the wrong category. He's about to get an angry letter he didn't earn for this incident.

I still believe however, that torturing and confining people with no recourse is a slap in the face of every soldier who fought and suffered against oppressive regimes which ignored the basic conventions of human dignity. We used to stand on the side of right. We stood against the Fascists, Communists, and other Dictatorships. Now we sell our souls to anyone willing to pretend to be on our side. Fear drives the fearful in this administration and they seem more than willing to throw away everything that this country once claimed to stand for in order to protect it and thereby destroying it.
