A victory for the good guys

The Democrats in the House of Representatives managed to get an anti-torture amendment added to the latest defence authorization bill. I don't know which Evil Party arms had to be twisted, but Richard Durbin did a Good Thing by getting the amendment in. Now, apparently, all it needs is to have the Coward in Chief sign it, and the trivially obvious rule that We're the United States of America; We don't do that sort of shit will get a little reinforcement.

I suspect we'll have to wait a few months before the people responsible for the torture in Vichy Iraq and the gulag are dragged off in irons, but I'm willing to wait a little bit for justice.
