No Hedging On Torture

Filed under: Uncategorized — matt w @ 8:58 am

I just called Sen. Leahy to praise him for saying he’ll oppose Mukasey for Attorney General unless Mukasey acknowledges that waterboarding is torture, and illegal. If one (or both, Wisconsinites) of your Senators is on the Judiciary Committee I urge you to call them and ask them to take the same position.

[BTW, Giuliani’s position on waterboarding — whether it’s torture “depends on who does it” — is particularly repulsive, even by today’s degraded standards.]



  1. depends on who does it

    I don’t think I’ve heard this stated quite so bluntly yet by an advocate of … what’s the acronym? We need an acronym! “aggressive questioning tactics under no guardianship”? Anyway.

  3. I’m totally taking credit.

  4. Oops, different headline now. It was about Leahy’s refusal before.
