Senator Leahy, you’re my favourite US politician

Listen here

It is beneath the dignity of this country, a country that has always been a beacon of human rights, to send somebody to another country to be tortured.


Attorney General Ashcroft said we got assurances. Assurances? From a country that we also say now “oh, we can’t talk to them because we can’t take their word for anything”.

Man, it’s great to listen to a Senator who remembers that there are three equal branches of government, not just one and two rubber stamps.
