Dear Senator and Presidential candidate John McCain,

I would like to inform you that your vote against the bill that would ban all "enhanced interrogation techniques", and instead restrict all parts of the intelligence community to procedures found in the Army Field Manual has dashed all respect which I once held for you, as well as any chance that I would vote for you in the upcoming presidential election.

Last year, when a similar bill came before Congress, you made a speech on the floor proclaiming that "Torture is never justified," and voted for the measure, which was later weaseled by the White House into exempting the CIA. This bill would fix that perversion of the intent of Congress, and yet, you voted against it.

You have violated your own principles, in, I suspect, an attempt to win Conservative voters. But in the end, all you have done is prove that your lust for the presidency is stronger than your principles. This is not what we want or need in the leadership of this country, and I will not be voting for you this Novemeber.


If you would like to hear the NPR article on this, you can see here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18958581

And yes, I'm sending this to Mr. McCain. Go me.
