Another must read

Andy McCarthy rips Secretary of State Rice for sloppy thinking and sloppy speaking on her trip to Europe last week. Specifically, he says "UNCAT [United Nations Convention Against Torture] simply does not prohibit the United States from engaging in cruel, inhuman and degrading conduct. It prohibits torture. Conduct arguably falling into the CID categories is prohibited, as far as the U.S. is concerned, only to the extent it is already illegal under our Constitution. The CID terms in UNCAT worked no change in our law or our international obligations."

Read it all to see why he's right and she's wrong.
