2. Cornyn is a disgrace to the bench, to the bar and the human race.
He used to be a civil district judge in Houston. And he had the nerve to threaten judges that didn't rule "the right way".... :grr:

3. Yes! That's exactly it!
He want's Holder to obligate himself not to prosecute torturers.

Ummm..Coryny is an idiot because now we know there are an unknown number of tortureres out there and now Holder is obligated to find him...

Ha...ha..ha.. thanks Cornyn you dumb ass..

4. The kind we should tell the world about!
Everyone needs to know that Cornyn and his party sought, carried out, and covered up torture and now they want to keep that info out of the light of day.

Come on Washington Dems, tell the world!

10. well on Keith's show he mentioned that the UN can independently

11. what the Senate needs to do is let him get up there and filibuster. None of
this "hold" business. Let him stand before the cameras and continually make the case against torture prosecutions. Let all the world see for as long as he can talk.
