Against this position
From An empty amendment, by The Washington Times editorial board (The Washington Times, November 9, 2005) (view)
|"Would McCain supporters not have been so harsh to Zubaida? Never made al-Qahtani stand? And do they want to make it illegal for U.S. interrogators ever again to make the choices they did in these two cases?"|
From McCain anti-torture amendment is pure political grandstanding, by Rich Lowry (The Salt Lake Tribune, November 16, 2005) (view)
|"It is two parts grandstanding and one part suicide — so, naturally, it has commanded a one-sided (90-9) majority of our grandstanding, suicidal United States Senate, including, dismayingly, over 80 percent of the Republican caucus."|
From Say “No” to the McCain Amendment, by Andrew C. McCarthy (National Review, November 15, 2005) (view)
|"As a result, failing to provide Miranda rights is sure to be found by many federal judges to be a form of lawless coercive interrogation that fits within McCain’s prohibition against cruel, unusual, and inhumane treatment."|
From Tortuous Progress, by The Wall Street Journal editorial board (The Wall Street Journal, December 13, 2005) (view)
