Damn Treasonous POW War Heroes!

Regarding the fact that the Administration is trying to strong arm Republican senators Graham and McCain, Andrew Sullivan writes:
It beggars belief that, after Abu Ghraib, Bagram, Gitmo and the dozens of deaths in interrogation that the administration wouldn't want some way out of its own impasse. But no: as so often, it sticks its heels in, and refuses to acknowledge an obvious and terrible mistake in the war. I look forward to the hard right describing McCain as a leftist or unpatriotic because he wants to restore America's reputation as a country that acts ferociously but always humanely in its own defense.

Well put. As I said in an earlier post, both of these men are conservatives and I do not agree with Graham and McCain on many things, but on this issue, they deserve credit. McCain, especially, should be listened to by this Administration; who better to explain just what the boundaries of 'cruel, inhumane, or degrading treatment' should be?
