I'm shocked there isn't a diary on this yet, and if there is I apologize. I can't find it in American news outlets, maybe that's the problem.
But the Toronto Star (Canada's largest paper) is reporting the Dick Cheney met with Republican Senators today and asked them to allow the CIA to torture prisoners.
More below the fold...
As we all know, the Senate has voted twice to ban torture tactics by Americans while Bush has threatened to veto. An AP article up at The Toronto Star (www.thestar.com) but (as of now) not up at CNN, NY Times or any other American paper I can find cites Republican aides in saying that the VP met personally with Republican Senators today to ask them to endorse American torture practices.
The article claims that Cheney met with all the Senators without their aides. Apparently John McCain immediately voiced opposition while Jeff Sessions backed the VP.
I'd post some exerpts of something but my computer skills are very limited.
