Say No to Torture and Yes to the Constitution

Recently I've written to Senator Bill Nelson and Senator Barbara Boxer regarding voting against Alberto Gonzales for Attorney General. My objections are in two areas; first, that torture is illegal, and second, that the Geneva Conventions protect American soldiers as well as the enemy. In addition to these two reasons, Mr. Gonzales has shown a disregard for the Constitutional roles of the Executive branch, writing that Mr. Bush can define the law in time of war, which is certainly not intended by the framers.
