Young Opposes Legislation to Withdraw Troops, Ban Torture

The House passed legislation Wednesday that allocated $50 billion to get American troops out of Iraq by December 2008. The legislation also banned interrogation techniques that are not part of the Army Field Manual.

Young voted against the legislation and spoke out in particular against the anti-torture provisions, saying that they were "just not right" becuase the bill would offer "the same constitutional protection that all our constituents enjoy."

Among the techniques banned would be waterboarding, shown above.

He didn't care when American troops were being mistreated at Walter Reed, either, so why should we expect him to care about upholding any American values of decency and honor?
