A sad day that will be remembered
The US Senate has passed controversial legislation endorsing President George W Bush's proposals to interrogate and prosecute foreign terror suspects.
"This longstanding tradition of our country about to be abandoned here is one of the great, great mistakes that I think history will record," Democrat Chris Dodd told the Senate.
Others backed claims by human rights groups that worry that the complex set of rules will allow harsh techniques that border on torture - such as sleep deprivation.
"This bill gives an administration that lobbied for torture exactly what it wanted," said Senator John Kerry.
I don't know what to do or how to deal with it..it is most worrisome indeed and comparisons between Nazi Germany are getting closer and closer 'one salami slice' at a time'..
The latest in a long list of disastrous decisions over the past few years.
On the other hand, it has to get worse ... maybe real bad, before people start to wake up.
