We need a new law that states "No current member of congress shall run for the office of President of the United States". This would reduce the posturing by presidential hopefuls and their mostly inappropriate legislation influence.

In a letter Friday to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Graham asked Rice, who this week defended the president's plan as legally sound, whether she would be comfortable with Iran imposing a similar restriction if trying a CIA paramilitary operative.

What a grandstanding fool.

This is sickening - that a US Senator would 1.) draw a comparison between a CIA undercover operative and a terrorist pig, and 2.) think that Iran would afford any kind of a fair trial should said operative actually be caught in an act of sabotage or other violence.

Enjoy the luxury of these asinine debates over legal niceties now, folks; the day is coming when western civilization will be backed into a corner and such discussion will be completely moot. Until we prosecute this war against radical Islam with our full fury and might the insanity and carnage will drag on indefinitely.

Yes, because it would be a major advance over the hostage taking, beheading and murder that generally takes place there.

Warner as well as Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C are all covert left-wing fascist anti-Americans who have shown their true colors and are now supporting the terrorist. One solution would be to let the terrorist go and put them in their states with border guards that would not let them out of that state.

just gave his staff a piece of my mind.

everyone should do likewise.

Sen. Warner is a moron is he doesn't back down on this. The next terrorist attack in the U.S. will be on his head if he restricts our ability to interrogate terrorists.

In a recent email to constituents, Levin refers to "when the United States attacked Iraq", as if we were guilty of something.
If it were up to the Democrats, Saddam Hussein would still be committing mass murder and torture, would still be providing terrorists with training grounds, and would be supplying terrorists with money and weapons to kill Americans. If it were up to Democrats, the U.S. would have been attacked several more times since 9/11, and hundreds of thousands of American civilians would have died from chemical, biological, and possibly nuclear weapons. The Democrats say the Iraq war is a diversion from fighting the war on terror. I guess they haven't heard that we have killed or captured thousands of terrorists in Iraq. The stupidity of the Democrats is beyond belief.

Warner as well as Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., oppose the legislation because they say barring a defendant from access to evidence — even if done under rare circumstances — would undermine the credibility of the court.

So much for their credibility as representatives of America's interests.

McCain, a potential 2008 presidential candidate, has become a moral authority in Congress on prisoner of war issues. The former Navy pilot spent more than five years in enemy captivity during the Vietnam War and last year successfully pushed through legislation opposed by the president that banned cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment of military detainees.

McCain just can't think outside the bamboo cage.
