FDR Quote

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd US President (1882-1945)

Makes me wonder why anyone would be against the

McCain amendment

no person in the custody or under effective control of the Department of Defense or under detention in a Department of Defense facility shall be subject any treatment or technique of interrogation not authorized by and listed in the United States Army Field manual on intelligence interrogation.

That’s it. What exactly is objectionable about it?
