A dash of hope

See this Jim Henley post on the passage of McCain amendments to the military apropriation bill which will hopefully lead to better treatment of prisoners by our military. See especially the veto-gates which the amendment still has to pass through and, in comments, the nine craven butchers who opposed this. I do not consider craven butchers to be a hyperbolic description, the reason to vote against these measures is if you approve of causing severe pain to others for the amusement value. For examples of the abuse for abuses sake which they don't want to decrease the chances of, see von of Obsidian Wings. The text of the amendment is included in this post, also courtesy of Obsidian Wings.
