Mr. Torture rides again…

On September 6, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

Senator John McCain (Carnivore-Ariz.) is at it again, fighting for the rights of terrorists and against the War on Terror, judging by this bit in the Washington Times (my mistake) this Associated Press account:

Aides said the legislation being introduced on Bush’s behalf later Wednesday on Capitol Hill insists on provisions covering military tribunals that would permit evidence to be withheld from a defendant if necessary to protect classified information.

Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham have drafted a rival proposal. It would guarantee certain legal rights to defendants, including access to all evidence used against them.

“I think it’s important that we stand by 200 years of legal precedents concerning classified information because the defendant should have a right to know what evidence is being used,” said McCain, R-Ariz.

Yes, let’s tell Al-Qaeda everything they want to know. Mmm hmm. Tough on terrorism that Senator is.
