Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) steps up to defend brutality in the first Congressional hearing to investigate the Bush administration’s retarded and self-serving interpretations of the law.
And wow, does Graham look like shit doing it!
Puffy face, Senator. Hitting the bottle?
Mattress head. Sleepless nights?
He looks worse than he did having to stand by John McCain and Sarah Palin during campaign season!
The question of placing a spider in with an arachnaphobic prisoner plunges Graham into a hair splitting contest with the witness. Graham can’t get the answers he wants!
The two agree that the method would only be torture if the prisoner believes death is pending.
Note the absurdity, however. A phobia is an irrational fear, and how the hell is someone supposed to extract what a prisoner’s belief is when he is irrational!
A frustrated Graham actually asserts in defense of torture, “One of the reasons these techniques have been used for about 500 years is that they work!”
