I liked this guy, without knowing much about him, BEFORE going down to Phoenix in 2010 & fighting the crap that was going on there, just by being down there, & I watched with a bit of hesitation as he jumped on the President Obama-bashing bandwagon a little bit in the past several years...but this is likely why I'm still in awe. I apologize for not sharing this the moment I wanted to, which was when I read it. Well-written article, also. High tuning forks take the cake, & this proves why he is a man of Might in our country who should receive reverence for what he's been through and, after, for what he continues to represent:

"WASHINGTON -- Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the only member of the U.S. Senate who personally knows what it means to be tortured, on Tuesday strongly defended the Democratic-led Senate investigation into the CIA's post-9/11 interrogation program, saying the agency's activities 'stained our national honor, did much harm, and little practical good.'
'...Most of all, I know the use of torture compromises that which most distinguishes us from our enemies, our belief that all people, even captured enemies, possess basic human rights, which are protected by international conventions the U.S. not only joined, but for the most part authored,' the senator added.
'...Our enemies act without conscience. We must not,' he said."
