This makes me sick. I heard about it yesterday on the radio, then ran into it again on Darren’s site (link below). I thought I’d provide some links so others can get just as disgusted.

Links to what? Links describing how Dick, our V.P., is trying to get language passed in Congress that will exempt the CIA from human rights laws. It would allow the CIA to torture foreign prisoners we are holding overseas.

Could this be a liberal smear campaign? Nope. This is for real.

Here’s the story in the New York Times.

Here’s the story from the UPI.

Here’s the story in The Boston Globe.

Here’s the story in The Washington Post, along with an editorial. (The editorial is also reprinted at Darren’s site, with his usual graphical flare).

Here’s an audio archive from NPR’s Talk of the Nation. (I have not listened to this yet.)

When we read these kinds of stories about our government, we have to remember who it was who put them into power. I am disgusted with our ignorant fellow Americans.
