Sen. Lindsey Graham: Torture works because we used it for 500 years (Video)

Senator Lindsey Graham speaks questions a witness in today's Senate Hearings on the treatment of terrorist detainees.

The Providence Journal reports:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sharp partisan dispute is shaping up for Wednesday's Senate hearing, called by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, on the U.S. treatment of terrorist suspects in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

The Rhode Island Democrat has billed the session as the first public hearing on the issue since the Obama administration's release of the Bush Justice Department's legal memoranda authorizing interrogation techniques that critics have labeled torture.

Whitehouse has made no secret of his conclusions on the issue, titling the hearing: ``What Went Wrong? Torture and the Office of Legal Counsel in the Bush Adminstration.''

  1. If you follow his reasoning, Senator Graham's logic depends on folks being guilty of witchcraft.
