4. How many votes would it take to at least pass a nonbinding resolution
specifically condemning certain practices including waterboarding, stress positions for long periods, use of cold and electric shocks as torture? Could Congress pass a resolution against torture the way it did against Move-On? I realize that Congress passed some kind of bill on this that was altered in Bush's view by a signing statement, but it seems the message did not get through to Bush. Surely condemning torture is just as worthy a use of Congress' time as condemning Move-On.
