Apparently, George has more passion for the continued abuse of our prisoners, than he does for supporting the troops
President Bush, who bills himself as a "compassionate conservative," refuses to rule out cruel, abusive treatment of prisoners of war and detainees. He has gone so far as to threaten to veto the vital $491 billion defense bill if an amendment barring mistreatment of prisoners is attached.
Not only is the President promoting the use of torture on our detainees, but he is threatening to stall financial support to the troops. This gives "playing politics" a whole new meaning... Disgusting.
