Mccain-Feinstein Anti-Torture Amendment

10 years ago, Congress came together in an overwhelming 90-9 vote to pass the Detainee Treatment Act. Yet, in direct contention with the Act, lawyers in the executive branch secretly authorized more abusive interrogation methods in the CIA program.

This was done against the advice of national security leaders and professional interrogators who know as I do that torture is ineffective, counterproductive, and makes our country less safe.

Join us and take action to reinforce the law against torture and cruel treatment, and ensure that America never tortures again.
