Mukasey Confirmed

Judge Michael "I don't know if torture is illegal" Mukasey has been confirmed by the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 11-8 vote. We can all thank Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Diane Feinstein for our new attorney general.

Sen. Patrick Leahy makes a point:
Mukasey’s assurances on torture that won over Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer was disingenuous, according to Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.

“Unsaid, of course, is the fact that any such prohibition would have to be enacted over the veto of this president,” said Leahy.

If torture continues to be used by the USA it will be thanks to Sen. Schumer and Sen. Feinstein.
