Failing to prohibit in statute the use of waterboarding and other torture undermines our nation's moral authority, puts American military and diplomatic personnel at risk, and weakens the quality of intelligence. Indeed, in 2007, General David Petraeus wrote, "Some may argue that we would be more effective if we sanctioned torture or other expedient methods to obtain information from the enemy. That would be wrong. Beyond the basic fact that such actions are illegal, history shows that they also are frequently neither useful nor necessary." Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaks in favor of the override.

2. Um, Nancy, hon?
Refusing to impeach murderous, constitution-shredding Hitler clones is what undermines our nation's moral authority.
