McCain: "I think it harmed us"

Posted By on Sun, Aug 30, 2009 at 7:27 PM

In The Skinny this week, we were critical of Sen. John McCain when he backed Sarah Palin's nonsense about death panels, but we liked what he had to say today about why it's not in the country's best interest to torture people. (Less happy about McCain's reluctance to investigate actions by people who went beyond what even the loose standards of Bush administration allowed.)

McCain says: "The damage that it did to America's image in the world is still something that we are still on the way to repairing. This is an ideological struggle as well as a physical one."
