McCain made a deal…see what Griper says:
And why do I say McCain has no principles? First, he flat out lied about what the deal means. “We got what we wanted, and that is the preservation of the Geneva Conventions,” McCain told NBC’s Today Show, “There will be no more torture. There will be no more mistreatment of prisoners that would violate standards of conduct we would expect of people who work for the United States of America.”
Second, McCain was held at the infamous Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam war and was tortured himself. Having experienced torture firsthand, he still thinks that this is something americans should do. Lying and saying they won’t torture doesn’t change a damned thing.
And make no mistake, americans will be doing this. Worse, since the US is a democracy (although that distinction is becoming mostly nominal), we are all responsible for what our government does and, when the government commits crimes, we are all guilty.
We’re all going to die.
