AP reported that a rebellious Senate committee defied President Bush today and approved terror-detainee legislation he has vowed to block, deepening Republican conflict over a key issue in the middle of congressional campaigns.
Colin Powell has turned on the Bush Administration, and joined the revolting Republicans. Powell wrote, "The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism. To redefine Common Article 3 would add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our own troops at risk."
Powell is wrong.
The world is not BEGINNING to doubt America's morality. It has now for years.
Thank God that at least a few brave Republicans love America so much, that they will incur the rath of this corrupt political party, and would seek to distance themselves from the illegal policies of a Presidential Administration seemingly bent on creating an a police state dictatorship.
Screw the terrorists. I don't care if they ever see the light of day. But I insist that the rule of law prevail.
