Enhanced Interrogation Techniques 2
In response to the video I posted recently where Marc Thiessen (former Bush speech writer) makes the case for EIT, I am now posting this speech by John McCain in the Senate where he forcefully rejects the claims by those who say that Enhanced Interrogation was what started the ball rolling in the Bin Laden Hunt. McCain, himself a victim of torture during his time as a Prisoner of War in Hanoi, uses surprisingly strong language as he criticises "Bush apologists" and refers to water boarding as a "Mock Execution". The video below is about five minutes long. The longer video of the entire speech (about 22 minutes) is also available on youtube. I would recommend it.
