Sen. John McCain disagrees with former Vice President Dick Cheney’s claim that enhanced interrogation techniques helped keep the country safe.
“I think the interrogations were in violation of the Geneva Conventions and the convention against torture that we ratified under President Reagan,” McCain told CBS’ Bob Schieffer Sunday.
And John McCain is 100% right. And why wouldn't he know what he is talking about? Unlike Dick "5 Deferments" Cheney, who had better things to do than serve his country, McCain became a war hero, when he could easily have avoided service too. McCain has been there, and knows first hand what torture is.
Thank you, John McCain, not only for your service, but also for the integrity you just showed. This is the John McCain I remember. It looks like you have taken your life and political compass back, and I applaud you for it.
