Congress Torture

Gonzales and GOP endorse torture

Al Gonzales and Judiciary Republicans have summarily endorsed the use of torture. Without coming out and saying it directly. In an exchange with Senator Cornyn (R-TX), the senator asked Gonzales if he believes prisoners should be treated according to the law.

Gonzales agreed.

This in and amongst statements from Gonzales and the GOP senators that anti-torture laws don't apply to accused terrorists. Therefor, accused terrorists -- we can only assume -- can be tortured and treated inhumanely, and our next Attorney General and the Republicans in Congress endorse it.

I'll track down the appropriate transcript passages when they're made available.
