John McCain's Crazy Values
This past weekend Senator John McCain (R-AZ) indicated that the killing of innocent people in wartime was regrettable but sometimes unavoidable. On CBS' Face The Nation January 15, 2006, Senator McCain had this to say:
"It's terrible when innocent people are killed. We regret that, but we have to do what we think is necessary to take out al quaeda, particularly the top operatives."
I understand that...
but this is the same Senator who just initiated the new strict anti-torture law which prohibits cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment of detainees in U.S. custody, even illegal combatants captured on the battlefield.
So Senator McCain thinks it's OK to kill innocent civilians caught up in a war, but it's not OK to inflict a little pain or humiliation on people who were trying to kill us in order to gain important information that might save American lives?
This makes it official...John McCain is an idiot.
