Retired 3-star general and Fox News guest says torture ‘worked’ on John McCain

Lt. Gen. Thomas McInernyA Fox Business Network host is apologizing for a remark a retired three-star general and Fox News guest made on his program Thursday – saying Sen. John McCain’s opposition to Gina Haspel becoming CIA director was because torture “worked” on McCain.

“The fact is John McCain – it worked on John,” retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney told host Charles Payne. “That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John.'”

McCain has always denied giving up harmful information when he was a prisoner of war and when critics distributed a flyer during the 2008 South Carolina presidential primary claiming he did, it was debunked by the fact-finding website PolitiFact.

Federal judge keeps hold on Trump transgender troop ban

Transgender ban on hold: Federal judge

A federal judge ruled late Friday that the injunctions put in place to halt President Trump’s ban on transgender members of the military should remain in place.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman of the Western District of Washington blocked the federal government from imposing the ban, ruling that transgender people are a protected class of people, according to HuffPost.

“The Court also rules that, because transgender people have long been subjected to systemic oppression and forced to live in silence, they are a protected class. Therefore, any attempt to exclude them from military service will be looked at with the highest level of care, and will be subject to the Court’s ‘strict scrutiny,’ ” Pechman wrote.

That formulation resolved none of the relevant questions over the ultimate impact of a strike that Trump ordered after a substantially similar one last year failed to deter Bashar Assad from launching a chemical attack.
