Right Wing Talkers Blame Congress For Not Defining Waterboarding As Torture

MSNBC's Dan Abrams talks to Michael Reagan (who called for Howard Dean to be tried and hung for treason) , Pat Buchanan and Salon's Joan Walsh about the Mukasey nomination and why he won't admit that waterboarding is torture. Reagan makes the outrageous statement that a lot of people think that Lindsey Graham should be waterboarded. Pat Buchanan actually says that Congress needs to pass a law banning it and Michael Reagan chimes in on the same point. Hey Buchanan and Reagan, ever hear of the Geneva Conventions? We need to pass a law saying we're going to honor an international treaty?
