    Thank you Senator Graham

    A Senate committee, in a bipartisan rebuff to President George W. Bush, approved military tribunal legislation that would give more legal protection to suspected terrorists than the administration wants.

    Four of the 13 Republicans on the panel joined the 11 Democrats to pass their version of the measure, rejecting Bush's proposal to bar defendants from seeing classified evidence prosecutors may want to use in court. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed the Senate approach, warning that the Bush administration is risking the safety of U.S. troops and worldwide opinion by permitting harsh treatment of detainees.
    "We are not going to win the war by killing every terrorist with a bomb or a bullet," South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham told reporters before the committee met. "You win the war by persuading those people in the Mideast to reject terrorism." [link]

    A reemergence of the war for the hearts and minds would be a good step forward amid all the many steps back. Of course this statement has nothing to do with the illegal actions commited in our name and the request by the Fuehrer to have that continue.
