Torture? What torture?

Nine Senators voted against an amendment that would prohibit "cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment."

These pro-torture Senators are:

Allard (R-CO)
Bond (R-MO)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Stevens (R-AK)

I happened to see Sessions on C-Span talking about this amendment. It reduced me to stammering and cursing and fuming. Plus, I'm pretty sure I saw Lucifer in the background, whispering, "right on, Senator!" I will try to find a transcript a bit later so I can share his wisdom.
