The Nine Pro-Torture Republicans

Posted by Frankie at 10/06/2005 10:33:00 AM

Going against the White House, 90 senators supported a and amendment in the appropriations bill which set new limits on interrogating detainees in Iraq and elsewhere. The amendment was added to a $440 billion military spending bill for the budget year that began Oct. 1. The proposal, sponsored by Sen. John McCain, also requires all service members to follow procedures in the Army Field Manual when they detain and interrogate terrorism suspects. McCain was POW himself who withstood years of torture in Vietnam.

However, 9 Republican Senators, voted "AGAINST THE WAR", "DO NOT SUPPORT THE TROOPS", and voted IN FAVOR OF TORTURE.

Here is the list of the nine Republicans who support torture:
  • Wayne Allard - Colorado
  • Kit Bond - Missouri
  • Tom Coburn - Oklahoma
  • Thad Cochran - Mississippi
  • John Cornyn - Texas
  • James Inhofe - Oklahoma
  • Pat Roberts - Kansas
  • Jeff Sessions - Alabama
  • Ted Stevens - Alaska
Thanks to MyDD for the list.

I sure wish that list was longer we'd be better off at staying safe here in America. Hey I've been traveling through your site. How come there are no posts on anything it must mean no one goes here to read your b.s.
