Default condemning the abuses of Iraqi prisoners

By The Associated Press

The 365-50 roll call Thursday by which the House approved a resolution
condemning the abuses of Iraqi prisoners while commending the members of the
U.S. Armed Forces serving in Iraq

A "yes" vote is a vote to approve the resolution.

Voting "yes" were 151 Democrats, 213 Democrats and one independent.

Voting "no" were 49 Democrats and one independent.
Looks like we really know where the Democrats stand on this issue.
I just love facts. This is why the Dems have lost power, they decline
the same issues they support in the media. It's all political with them.
Even the war.

The only no votes were 49 Democrats and one independent.
For some reason they placed the independent under the (R). Not sure
if that was intentional.

It's under Texas. Paul, N; There isn't a list defining Independents.
I guess Independents are republicans now. LOL

Okay, so did 364 democrats vote yes, or did 62 democrats vote late and 213 is an update? =)

hmmm fudgy numbers, i blame the aborted chads.

Why arewe even having a vote on a resolution to condem this kind of behavior? I really don't understand that, it was evil and cruel, screw the vote, let the UCMJ handle it and let them have whats comming to them.

Yes, a vote was necessary, because Congress needs opportunities like this to make the United States look stupid. I am just glad they tabled the vote planned for later, praising the abuse of the prisoners in Iraq. Imagine how emberrassing that could have been.

LMAO, exactly!

I can think of about 10 violations of the UCMJ, here...minimum. Also taking into account it happened in a combat zone the penalties are inherently harsher. These folks, if convicted, could damned near get life. IMO they deserve it.

I'm glad Congress is tackling the tough issues and putting aside such petty undertakings as reducing the trade deficit.

In the spirit of our fearless leaders I move that we endorse a resolution commending the brave men and women of Congress for wisely utilizing their time and our tax dollars in pursuing these sorts of issues.

All in favor?
