Sen. Jack Reed Castigates William Haynes (clip from Cspan, additional information on the Detainee Interrogation Techniques Hearing here).

Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday, former Pentagon counsel William Haynes who (as posted on June 17) came up with a legal framework that would allow the military to ignore a law prohibiting American soldiers from engaging in torture, was rebuked by Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) told Haynes that his advice “did a disservice to the soldiers of this nation. You empowered them to violate basic conditions which every soldier respects — the Uniformed Code of Military Justice, the Geneva Convention. … Don’t go around with this attitude of you’re protecting the integrity of the military. You degraded the integrity of the United States military.”  Watch it:
