Have they No Shame???

The Washington Post noted the following litle tidbits:

...Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) expressed skepticism: "Well, some of those policies at one time were to make one have the prisoner feel that they were drowning."

"You're getting into, again," said Goss, "an area of what I will call professional interrogation techniques..."

One brave Senator, Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) took a position against such outrageous behavior:
"I have to tell you I am losing a little patience with what appears to me to be an almost pathological obsession with calling into question the actions of men and women who are on the front lines of the war on terror."

Senator Roberts apparently feels it is bad enough that we're outsourcing perfectly good jobs as torturers - but to treat the CIA's practice of kidnapping and torturing folks with the same level of interest as critically important issues like steroid abuse in baseball? SHOCKING!!!

Maybe we can get Amnesty International help counsel those poor, depressed, demoralized torturers, so tragically traumatized by attempted Congressional oversight.
