McCain Refuses to Criticize Mukasey

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) appeared on ABC's This Week today to answer questions about waterboarding and Mike Mukasey, the nominee for Attorney General.  Last week, Mukasey declined to say whether he viewed waterboarding as torture.  McCain was a former POW who was tortured in Vietnam.  Mukasey was purposely coy by saying he wasn't sure. 

 

 McCain was asked pointblank by George Stephanopoulos if Mukasey needed to state that waterboading is torture in order to be confirmed.  Upon hearing the question, McCain squirmed, hesitated, and finally said that he can't be that absolute. 

 

Of all people, John McCain should come out strongly against Mike Mukasey's non-answer about torture.  McCain was tortured for years and now he is playing a part in condoning it.

 

What is clear in this situation is that John McCain is torn between his blind loyalty to the Republican thugs in the White House and his own personal experience of being abused by his captors.  He knows damn well that the Bush administration he supports tortures prisoners both in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in other "detention" facilities around the world. 

 

Unfortunately, Senator McCain will not disparage Mike Mukasey because he refuses to stand up to the Bushies.  Why?  Because he wants to be President and thinks he has to suck up to the administration to get there.
