House Passes Anti-Torture Bill - McHugh Votes Against It

By a 222-199 vote, the House of Representatives passed the FY2008 Intelligence Authorization bill. This is the bill that bans waterboarding and confines interrogators to using only techniques permitted by the Army Field Manual.

Rep. John McHugh joined all but 5 of his republican colleagues in voting in favor of torture.

NY Rep. Jerrold Nadler, Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, gives his two cents below.
