Quality Interrogations

Remember the measure that the Senate passed yesterday placing some constraints on the interrogation methods we use for detainees? Well there were 9 Senators who voted against it, and the fine folks at the Washington Post asked them what in the hell they were thinking and then compiled a nice list for us.

My favorite comes from James M. Inhofe (R-OK).

"From my first statement in the Senate Armed Services Committee in
May of last year, I have made it clear that we are spending far too much
of our time and effort on the prisoner abuse issue and not enough time on
the quality of our interrogations. . . . The military justice system was
well into its investigations before the public was even aware of the issue.
It is my feeling that the more we air this issue publicly, the more we are emboldening the terrorists. The more we talk about our methods of
interrogation we must remember that the enemy is listening."

I'm not going to pick apart this statement, as there is just so much wrong with it. I'll simply leave you with a few nice photos (btw, stop taking photos if you don't want the enemy to know of our interrogation methods. duh.) that show the "quality of our interrogations."

    Inhofe isn't even the most embarrassing politician in Oklahoma. Right now I'd say he's second to Coburn but Istook is always right on his heels in the Biggest Dickweed DumbAss Race.
