  1. Oh yeah, Big BAD John Cornyn: one of the nine reprehensible US Senators who voted Against the McCain Anti-Torture Amendment to the Department Of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006, on October 5, 2005. He had this to say about his weaslie assent to human torture:

    “Supporters claim that this amendment was necessary to send a message that the abuse at Abu Ghraib is inconsistent with our laws and values.

Finally, the amendment gives the false impression that torture and abuse of detainees was the official policy of the United States government. That is also false. The policy was, and continues to be, one that requires humane treatment of all detainees.”John Cornyn, reported in “Nine Explain Interrogation Votes“, Washington Post, October 7, 2005
