CBS: 63% say "Follow international agreements"
snip>
While Mr. Bush and the Senate seek a compromise on new rules governing the treatment of terror suspects, most Americans, 63 percent, think the United States should generally follow international agreements on handling prisoners of war.

Most Americans, 56 percent, say torture is never justified, while 35 percent say sometimes it is.

IN TREATMENT OF POWs, THE U.S. SHOULD

Follow international agreements
63%
Do what it thinks right, regardless of what other nations think
32%

1. One-third ... again!
It's always one-third in support of BushCo and their fascist agenda. So I guess it's official ... approximately 30% of the people in this country are complete morons! :eyes:

3. They are complete morons
with a sadistic streak a mile long. I don't know how they can sleep at night, or face themselves in the mirror. Useless pieces of conservative garbage is all they are to me.

2. "Do what it thinks right..."
That's one example of devious framing.
