More about Torture vote

Yesterday, I noted that Debbie Stabenow had shocked many of us by voting for Bush’s “Torture” bill. I thought you might be interested in seeing what Hillary Clinton said on the floor of the Senate before she voted against the bill:

"By allowing this Administration to further stretch the definition of what is and is not torture," Hillary said, "we lower our moral standards to those whom we despise, undermine the values of our flag wherever it flies, put our troops in danger, and jeopardize our moral strength in a conflict that cannot be won simply with military might."

It would be interesting to see Stabenow’s justification for her “yes” vote. By the way, Hillary mentioned the flag that Stabenow loves so much that she is willing to sacrifice freedom to speech to protect. It would seem she has desecrated it far more than any flag-burning protester.
