Did anyone see this yesterday?

Cafferty: "What Are We Becoming?"

Did the house pass legislation which will grant the current U.S. administration immunity from possible war crimes (violations of the Geneva convention) if they commit them?

I was posting on this the other night, before the House called the session to an end just after midnight. To be resumed the next morning, when they were going to vote and such. So, yes they did and now what happens.

The military tribunal was voted in, so I'm sure this will have simular support.

I'm not surprised really, just another way of slipping the notch tighter on those Martial Law reins.

Thanks for the clip Advisore. I'll check it out.:up

But I still can't believe anyone would be willing to vote on that bill.

Unbelievable. First they keep shut on the existance of secret prisons used for "torture." Then they tell the public the anti-torture laws only pertain to "prisoners of war," not the prisoners of the "war on terror," then they change their guidelines as to what defines torture, and now they are making laws to protect themselves for the torture they say they didn't commit.

So in summation. We're gonna torture whoever we want and if we "accidently" torture some sorry...our mistake.

Thats pretty much what their doing with this in a round about way.
