Americans Love Torture

US Senate backs terror trial bill

BBC News -

The US Senate has passed controversial legislation endorsing President George W Bush's proposals to interrogate and prosecute foreign terror suspects.

The 65-34 vote followed Thursday's backing by the House of Representatives for almost identical legislation.

The new bill could be signed into law by the president within a few days.
Under the new legislation, special tribunals will be set up to question and try suspects being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"As our troops risk their lives to fight terrorism, this bill will ensure they are prepared to defeat today's enemies and address tomorrow's threats," President Bush said in a statement on Thursday.

Looks like the terrorists win again. We're only one bill away from treating American citizens accused of crimes the exact same way.

What kind of message are we sending to the rest of the world and, more importantly, what dangers are we putting our own military in when we throw the Geneva Conventions right out the window?

Just one of many from, a favorite haunt of mine.

As long as this government that "represents" the people runs the country into the ground, I'm going with the world view which is, "Americans Love Torture".
