Hill Feud Brews Over Torture Pics

Sens. Joe Lieberman and Lindsay Graham are taking a stand on legislation that will allow the White House to censor photos of detainee abuse--and the Obama administration is happy to help them along. House Democrats, on the other hand, want hearings on the images before they vote on the measure. Graham considers the issue of the utmost importance. "We're not going to do any more business in the Senate," he said. "Nothing's going forward until we get this right." The legislation to oppress the photos was removed from a larger bill that included a $108 billion line of credit for the International Monetary Fund. Graham and Lieberman, outraged at the move, vowed to vote against the IMF bill, and did not rule out the possibility of a filibuster. Senators considering joining the duo in their obstinance are weighing the decision carefully.
