link Or, "How to Prove You're the Jackass Everyone Says You Are, in D minor" The latest military spending bill [at $440,000,000,000!!!!(not including the Iraq war)] has an included rider, placed there by the Senate, that would set standards for the interrogation of prisoners and disallow torture of anyone in US government custody. The President's advisors say they will recomend he veto the bill. Not *once* has the man vetoed *any* bill in his five years as President - but now he's threatening to use it, for the first time, on legislation that would prevent the abuse of suspects in US custody. I feel sick.
