Harkin Responds to Bush Veto of Intelligence Bill

MARCH 8TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate

Senator Tom Harkin released the following statement today after President Bush’s weekly radio address where he announced his veto of the Intelligence Authorization Bill:

It is absolutely deplorable that this President continues to turn a blind eye to the horrific and illegal interrogation practices festering under his watch. We in Congress joined the more than 30 military Admirals and Generals– including General David Petraeus – in standing up for human rights and acknowledging that torture is not only ineffective, it jeopardizes our safety. I am disappointed that the President has decided to betray our nation’s values and put our country at further risk.
