Please work to defeat Senator James M. Inhofe from Oklahoma

I am listening to the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings. I am disgusted by the attitude of Senator Inhofe. He provides examples of torture performed under Saddam Hussein, and seems to be trying to JUSTIFY the abuses of prisoners in Iraq, or at least draw a parallel and that the actions of our own troops fall short of the level that existed under the dictator. I believe that it is imperative that the US Military establish a zero tolerance policy for these kinds of abuses. Anything less is condoning the actions in the past and allowing them to exist in the future.

We must also purge the Senate of attitudes like Senator Inhofe. Please do everything you can to support the Oklahoma Democrats to drive these attitudes from our Senate and our government.
