You can add former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell to the list of those in the GOP that are coming out against King George’s plans to allow torture to be added to the bag of tricks used by the US in their interrogation techniques of suspected terrorists.
“The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism,” said Powell, who served under Bush and is a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “To redefine Common Article 3 would add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our own troops at risk.”
With all the rhetoric from the right on how liberal’s are weak on terror I wonder how they will now spin this against Democrats? Or maybe some in the GOP are starting to realize that stooping to the terrorist’s level isn’t where the US should be on this issue.
