So McCain and Bush just came to a "compromise
" that strips meaningful judicial protections from anyone the President says so. Oh, and the bills authorizes violations of Common Article III of the Geneva Conventions too.
This is so deeply, fundamentally wrong--I can't believe this is happening in our country (even after everything else). But it is--and we should at least try to stop it. The only hope lies in convincing the Senate to defeat the compromise. It may be damn near impossible, but we should at least try.
