First, I'm always skeptical of political columns in either the Post or the Times as they have a left-leaning, if not radical, political agenda. It is also difficult to clearly see the issue when comments are quoted out of context.

Even if this representation was true I would not necessarily feel outrage as we are at war with an enemy that plays by no rules. Withholding pain medication? Boo hoo:( Al Quaeda must be laughing as they behead and torture their victims while we Americans fuss over pain medication.

No sir. America appears to prefer to be a house divided rather than unite against the nastiest enemy the world has ever known. I feel the liberals would rather begin a leaflet campaign against terrorists rather than to fiercely meet it head on - the only terms the terrorists understand. In short, I would vote for Bush/Cheney for a third term if it was an option.


Okay, so I am a died in the wool liberal and read the NYT and WaPo every day. Of course, I am opposed to and ashamed by the odd embrace of torture that this administration has engaged.

However, what the hell is this editorial talking about?

"Cheney is aggressively pursuing an initiative that may be unprecedented for an elected official of the executive branch: He is proposing that Congress legally authorize human rights abuses by Americans."

Look, obviously Cheney is a freaking nutjob right wing sadist and everything... But exactly what is this initiative that he is aggressively pursuing? Why is the only article anyone is linking to about this issue an opinion piece? I know about the McCain bill and the rumors that the president is going to veto it (way to go with god, george)... But can someone please enlighten me?


The VP is not acting on his own as he espouses the use of torture. He is stating the view of Bush. I would like to hear how Dobson, Bush's supporter, believes torture is or should be a part of America's family values.
