Support McCain Anti-Torture Bill

Please write, call or email your senators and President Bush. Ask them to support the McCain, Warner, Graham amendment to this year's defense bill that would outlaw "cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment" of prisoners in U.S. custody. It will also prevent the military from keeping "ghost detainees" off the books, and require interrogators to use only those techniques approved in the Army's new field manual.

Incredibly, the Bush Administration has threatened a veto of the entire defense bill over this one provision, saying it would "impair [the President's] ability to protect the nation from terrorists."
