Newsflash-you can't be pro-Constitution and pro-Torture.

Convention Against Torture signed by President Ronald Reagan states:

"No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat or war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture" and "an order from a superior officer or a public authority may not be invoked as a justification of torture" (Art. 2 (2-3)). "

This treaty was ratified in 1994.

Article 6 of the US Constitution states:

"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."

I know Conservatives, being the whiney, emotionally charged infants they are, love to torture people. But it's against the law.
