Your Turn, Senator McCain

The Washington Post has a scathing editorial today about the Bushies' torture memo.

The memo should end any doubts that far from being just the work of a few bad apples like Lynndie England at Abu Ghraib, the use of torture was approved and encouraged as policy of the entire Bush administration. Not a single high-ranking official in the administration should still be working in the government by next week, and most of them should be arrested.

Republican Senators Graham, Warner, and especially McCain, who had his own experiences with torture while a POW in Vietnam, have spoken eloquently in condemnation of the despicable treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. Now that the evidence is clear that torture was, and presumably still is, the policy of the misadministration, it behooves these gentlemen to stick with their principles and demand the resignation or impeachment of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and others.
