CAIR Good News Alert: Senate Adopts McCain-Feinstein Torture Ban

Senate Adopts McCain-Feinstein Torture Ban
Torture Vote
If signed into law, the National Defense Authorization Act will end the CIA’s use of the simulated drowning technique called “water-boarding,” stress positions, sleep deprivation, sensory deprivation, and violent enemas and forced rectal feeding (proven to have no medical benefits). It would also require that the International Committee of the Red Cross have access to anyone detained by the U.S. thus ending the government’s secret prison program.
“Torture is not an American value and the Senate has listened to the American people and reaffirmed that fact,” said CAIR Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw. “As a nation, we momentarily lost our way in relying on torture in the face of terror and uncertainty, but are now more aware of how wrong torture is after having witnessed what terrible actions were committed in our name.”
