    He signed the UN Convention on Torture and had it ratified by Congress.  Bush and Cheney violated their oaths of office by participating in or condoning torture.  The constitution makes all treaties the law of the land.  Ali Soulfan  who got all the information Cheney claims he got by torture the FBI terrorism pro was removed from the field by the director due to this torture and he and the other pros never got to question KSM who was caught March 1 and tortured 183 times in March or you might say watertortured every 6 hours for a month.  He most likely knew where Bin Ladin was but had so little respect for the torture he used to count down with his fingers the 40 seconds he knew was the limit.  The BS they tortured out of their prisoners was then trotted off to the UN by Powell as the truth and 1 really stupid unnecessary war fought in a really stupid way, fire all Bathists, fire the Army, yeah, yeah that's the ticket.  Then both of them write books admitting to and proud of torture.   Until their crimes are dealt with this is War Crime Nation, and I am not a proud citizen.  Thanks for keeping up the effort MB, I know your good record on the topic.
