Subject: RE: BS: US Wecolmes back legal torture
The bill gives the president the power to "interpret the meaning and application of the Geneva Conventions." Critics fear this means that the president can unilaterally authorize interrogation techniques that many people would consider torture. He is not intelligent to do so.
The mind reels in disbelief, esp. at the loss of Habeas Corpus.
