John *Torture* Cornyn AKA *No Civil Liberties When You're Dead* gets Smacked

26 September 2006 at 12:16:18 AM

I've said before I can't wait to vote Cornyn out; he's embarrassing to have as a Senator. I read this from a writeup of the Judiciary Committee this morning regarding detaining prisoners in Gitmo.

It is important to remember — and sometimes I think some forget — these are enemies of the United States captured on the battlefield,’’ Mr. Cornyn said.

One of the witnesses appearing before the committee, Thomas Sullivan, a lawyer representing 10 detainees held in the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, responded that “the question is whether they are enemy combatants.’’

He said many of the detainees have been held for years with no chance to challenge the government’s presumption of their guilt, and called the annual reviews “a joke, a sham,’’ in which no evidence or witnesses are presented.

“Do you call that due process, Your Honor?” he said to Senator Cornyn, a former member of the Supreme Court of Texas.

What else is there to say about that? Course Cornyn thinks torture is fine and personally introduced Alberto Gonzalez for his hearing to be AG-this the man that introduced the torture memo Bush used as justification for waterboarding and other "methods".
