    McCain pushes back against Cheney, says torture violated law

    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.

    Good for McCain
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    fyi Re: McCain pushes back against Cheney, says torture violated law

    Disagrees? What does McCain's belief that it went against the geneva convention have anything to do with Cheney saying it kept us safe?

    It's kinda like "McCain pushes back against Cheney's claims that broccoli is healthy, saying the food gives him gas and tastes "yucky"

    McCain is the poster boy for torture.

    The N Vietnamese succesfully forced him to do as they pleased, and I am sure under torture they got all the information about the uS military that McCain knew.

    Did you see the video of McCain in the Hanoi Hilton, where he basically was the N Vietnamese Propoganda minister? If they could force him to do that, then all the information he had was theirs.
