Army Field Manual revised to permit torture
This news has brought me very low.
Rumsfeld and Cambone have had the Army Field Manual for interrogation revised to permit torture, and the new sections of the manual will be classified. Classified!
So even if the McCain amendment survives the conference process on the defense spending bill, it will be meaningless.
The amendment's purpose was to confirm existing U.S. law against torture, in any case. As far as I'm concerned, Rumsfeld and Cambone will be violating that law the moment they approve the new manual, or release it for use in the field.
