As you know, several weeks ago, McCain snookered his Senate colleagues into approving an amendment to the defense appropriations bill, claiming that the amendment would prohibit torture against terrorists.

But McCain's FLAWED amendment does more than ‘prohibit torture.' It prohibits legitimate interrogation techniques -- interrogation techniques that have foiled at least ten terrorist plots and have saved countless American lives.

It seems to me that a big part of the problem with our Federal law makers is that they have so many parts to their laws that they can not protect America from themselves.

WHY do they keep compiling multiple amendments in each bill?

What is the problem with making bills that are concise and to one single point or issue?
