Politics: The Pro-Torture Nine

Worth reminding people who their names are:

Allard (R-CO)
Bond (R-MO)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Stevens (R-AK)

Ninety Senators think giving the military some guidelines and restrictions on treatment of prisoners is a good idea [link]. McCain and Graham most of all. They should know. McCain was a POW who was tortured himself and Graham was a JAG. The neanderthals on the list above are a Who's Who list of the the biggest assholes in Washington. Hopefully at some point the people who get to vote on them realize that.

Oh, let's not forget the Asshole in Chief who has vowed to veto it.
