Water(boarding)gate Continues; Mukasey’s Confirmation Uncertain

Posted by stoptorture on October 25th, 2007

The associated press is now reporting (Oct. 25) that Mukasey’s confirmation is uncertain. Both Senator Durbin and Leahy have said their confirmation votes depend upon Mukasey’s answers concerning waterboarding.  All ten Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee recently sent a letter to Mukasey asking him to answer whether waterboarding was illegal under U.S. law, including treaty obligations.  Other Senators, including Republicans such as Arlen Specter, are reportedly troubled too. Senator Specter also wrote Mukasey a letter asking for responses on a number of issues, including waterboarding.

Meanwhile, the legal ignorance appears to be contagious. Rudy Giuliani now says he doesn’t know whether waterboarding is torture, claiming “it depends on who does it,” among other astounding qualifications.

    This uncertainty must be made clear to everyone. We should not allow ourselves to be put into a situation where things are so hard for all of us to comprehend.

    Of course John, that you are correct with what you really are telling but I suppose it is better to carry what we think than say it if it is only designed to hurt the sentiments of people. Just forget it in the meantime mainly because it will perform you no good. With regards to you Linda, you bettertouch base trying to possess a flexible heart.
    We would instead tend to say a little something over it John rather than just continue to keep quiet and look insensitive. Forgive me for my gesture.

    Sure James, you happen to be correct with what you are telling but I guess it is best to hold what we think than say it if it’s only meant to hurt the sentiments of other individuals. Just forget it for now given it do you no good. With respect to you Anne, you bettertouch base and continue to possess a flexible heart.
    I’d personally rather decide to say a little something regarding this Michael than to just maintain quiet and look insensitive. Pardon me for my words.

    Certainly Tom, you happen to be right with what you are telling but I assume it is advisable to maintain our opinion than say it if it’s only supposed to hurt the feelings of other folks. Just forget it in the meantime because doing so will do you no good. With respect to you Jane, you betterreach out so you can use a forgiving heart.
    I would instead elect to say a little something about this James than to just maintain noiseless and look insensitive. Pardon me for my gesture.
