I have a huge admiration for John McCain's courage as a prisoner-of-war. The thought of what he had to go through for five years just leaves me, as someone who has never even had to do military service, humbled. It does also make me wonder what his views are on torture, rendition and "enemy combatant" status and the Geneva Convention. He himself has experienced torture, been broken by it, seen its effects on others; does this make him think twice about approving its use by his own country should be become president? Might his attitude be: well I suffered, so others can too? Or will it be a case of expediency - it's wrong, but there's one law for us and another law for everybody else?
