More questions for Senator Rockefeller

Senator Rockefeller, your conscience is calling

For months, several of us here at West Virginia Blue have called for Senator Jay Rockefeller to use his position as Senate Intelligence chairman to call for hearings on torture and rendition. Considering he voted for the Torture Act of 2006, aka the Military Commissions Act, it’s the least he should do. There’s no better way for him to demonstrate that he really opposes torture than to actually DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT instead of hiding behind “confidentiality rules.”

    There’s blood on everyone’s hand, either by action or omission. Torture? Rendition? We’re in a state now after 9/11 where the ends justify the means. No one really wants to hear about technicalities, like the constitution. Scary stuff.

    But what bothers me more than Senator Jay Rockefeller’s failure to do his part in ending torture and ending extraordinary rendition is that the presidential candidates have mentioned nothing — not even in the form of canned lip service — to these issues. At what point will the American public say, “Enough?” At what point will it be too late to reverse the severe damage the American government has caused to our constitutional rights and to its position in the world?
