    Bush Accepts "No Torture" Policy

    Stardate 5014.4

    In a total about face, Bush has decided to accept Senator John McCain's call for a law banning cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment of foreign suspects in the war on terror.
    Bush said the agreement will "make it clear to the world that this government does not torture and that we adhere to the international convention of torture, whether it be here at home, or abroad."
    I don't know, but why did it take so long for this to happen? We had DICK Cheney pleading with the Senate to exempt CIA operatives, and we had the White House threatening to veto the Bill. I think this should have been a done deal a long time ago! I think that if the US was serious about repairing their image with regards to torture and secret CIA prisons, they would have done this a long time ago.
